The actress and her husband, chef Chris Fisher, became parents in 2019. During her first pregnancy, Amy felt constant nausea, early toxicosis, and other issues, so they decided to conceive a second child using IVF.

Schumer openly talks about this on social networks `They took 35 eggs from me. Not bad for an older woman, huh? And 26 were fertilized!` As a result, Amy received one healthy embryo and two with small deviations (but they can turn out to be ordinary children).

In August, however, the actress admitted that she had to abandon this idea `We did IVF, which was very difficult. I decided that if it doesn’t work, I would unlikely do an IVF again.` She admitted that she was thinking about surrogacy, but so far, they didn’t use it.
