Amy Schumer Celebrates Son Gene's Birthday with Tribute to Hubby Chris Fisher: ‘I Feel Loved and Supported Always’

Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor isn’t the only one turning 2 years old this week. Amy Schumer’s son, Gene David Fischer, celebrated his second birthday on Wednesday, May 5.

In honor of her son’s milestone, the 39-year-old actress shared a slideshow on her personal Instagram account. She also used the occasion to express her gratitude to her hubby/baby daddy, Chris Fischer.

“Today is our son’s birthday and I woke up emotional as hell thinking about my husband, Chris,” she captioned the post. “In this first photo while I was having a 3-hour c section he held my hand and stared in my eyes so I never felt alone. I feel loved and supported always. He takes care of our family and is a husband and father beyond my wildest dreams.”

Schumer also addressed her husband’s autism, which he was diagnosed with back in 2019. (And she even slyly revealed a sweet nickname for Gene.)

She continued, “Also, he has autism spectrum disorder. Being tested and diagnosed has helped us communicate and support each other better. People have reached out to us saying that seeing our doc #expectingamy motivated them to get tested and that it has changed their lives. We want to encourage parents and people to give themselves the gift of information so people can function to the best of their abilities and remove any stigma that comes with autism. Statistically, our son most likely will be diagnosed as well and if he’s anything like his father that is wonderful news. So on our baby's birthday where he held my hand tight and held me with his eyes, I want to say I love you thank you and happy birthday little geenie panini we love you as much as you love school busses.”

Happy birthday, Geenie Panini. You have some wonderful parents.
