Amy Schumer Talks About Her Husband’s Autism In Her Netflix Special

We assume that celebrities lead a life that is lavish and gorgeous. However, we need to get over this myth and realize that actors face the same struggles and sometimes even tougher. But still they need to be presentable on screen. Amy Schumer talked about her husband’s Autism and she makes it sound like a cakewalk.

The comedian opened up about her husband’s Autism spectrum on her Netflix special “Growing”. She got married to Chef Chris Fischer in February 2018 and she gave birth to their first baby, Gene Attell Fischer on 5th May 2019.

She acknowledges that her husband’s brain was a bit different from hers. He was diagnosed with Asperger’s, an autism spectrum disorder.

She said that there were signs but she was not bothered with any of it.

On the diagnosis, she said, “And once he was diagnosed, it dawned on me how funny it was, because all of the characteristics that make it clear that he’s on the spectrum are all of the reasons that I fell madly in love with him.”

As far as the condition of her husband is concerned, he is unable to lie in any circumstances and says anything that is on his mind.

She explained, “He keeps it so real. He doesn’t care about social norms or what you expect him to say or do. If I say to him ‘Does this look like s**t?’ he’ll go ‘Yeah, you have a lot of other clothes, why don’t you wear those?’”

This is not the first time that Schumer opened up about the struggles of her pregnancy. On her pregnancy, she said, “It’s been pretty tough, I didn’t know that pregnancies were such a bummer.”
