Comedian Amy Schumer has been nothing but candid when it comes to sharing the highs and lows of her pregnancy and parenting her 1-year-old son, Gene. In the past, she's publicly modelled a less-than-glamorous pair of mesh underwear and spoken openly about her struggles with hyperemesis gravidarum, or severe morning sickness. Now, the 39-year-old mom is giving her fans a look at what it's like to be on the road as a standup comedian while pregnant in her new three-part docuseries, Expecting Amy.
Available to stream on HBO Max today, the docuseries explores Amy's marriage to her husband, Chris Fischer, and illustrates the pressure on women to "do it all" without complaining.
"It takes viewers behind-the-scenes as Schumer battles through an extraordinarily difficult pregnancy while documenting the formation of a comedy special," reads a press release for the series. "Schumer continues touring to prepare for the taping in Chicago that she isn't sure she will be able to execute. It focuses on pulling the curtain completely back on her marriage to husband Chris Fischer, and the journey to his diagnosis on the autism spectrum."
Watch until the end to get a few small looks at what Amy went through on her pregnancy journey, and stream Expecting Amy on HBO Max now!
