Just eight months after shocking us all with the news that she secretly tied the knot with husband Chris Fischer, Amy Schumer has yet another surprise announcement to make: She's pregnant! Schumer just revealed that she and Fischer are expecting their first child together, and she shared the news in a particularly progressive way.

Instead of announcing her pregnancy on her own Instagram account, Schumer shared the news on the Instagram Story of Jessica Yellin of News Not Noise in a post aimed to endorse congressional and gubernatorial candidates in the November midterm elections.

"I’m not in the business of making voting recommendations, but these are the recommendations of Amy Schumer, one of the most consistent and earliest supporters of News Not Noise," Yellin said in a video on her Instagram Story. "Now read all the way to the bottom, you’ll see there’s some news down there. Congratulations, Amy.” Next popped up a list of Schumer’s recommended candidates, and at the very bottom read her baby news: “I’m pregnant-Amy Schumer.” Head to Jessica Yellin's Instagram Story to check it out!

Schumer teased the news herself on her own Instagram page, sharing a photo of pregnant Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, with her and her husband's faces super-imposed over theirs.

Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer tied the knot back in February of this year with a secret celebrity wedding for the books. The nuptials took place in Malibu with several of Schumer's celebrity friends in attendance, including Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Larry David, and Judd Apatow. The ceremony, which was officiated by comedian John Early (in drag!), overlooked the ocean and the bride donned a floral tulle wedding dress by Monique Lhuillier for the occasion.

Since the couple had been reportedly dating for just a few months before saying their I do's, the Trainwreck actress posted a note to Instagram clarifying that, no, she was not pregnant, and that she and her new hubby request donations made to Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit organization which advocates for gun control and against gun violence, in lieu of wedding gifts.

While she wasn't pregnant at the time of her nuptials, looks like these two now really do have a baby on the way! Congratulations!
