Guys, the world is a crazy place. And while we’re def not saying a few high-profile baby bumps can erase the very scary realities we’re facing right now, the fact that Meghan Markle, Kehlani and Kate Upton all have babies on the way is a nice bit of happy news, yes? Here are all the fresh celebrity offspring to squeal over some time in 2018.
Amy Schumer—a political activist, comedian, and actress—announced her pregnancy to encourage fans to vote. She posted a photo on Instagram of her and husband Chris Fischer superimposed onto the bodies of Prince Harry and a pregnant Meghan Markle, teasing “some exciting news” to be announced on journalist Jessica Yellin’s Instagram. Yellin runs the site, “News. Not Noise.” Schumer told fans, “Please follow her for up to the minute #newsnotnoise she breaks down what’s really going on… Follow her and VOTE!!”
On her Instagram story, Yellin called the announcement to come “happy noise” before adding, “I’m not in the business of making voting recommendations, but these are the recommendations of Amy Schumer, one of the most consistent and early supporters of ‘News. Not Noise.’” Afterwards followed a screengrab of Schumer’s 22 endorsements, including candidates such as Beto O’Rourke for Texas senator and Stacey Abrams for Georgia governor. At the very end of the list, Schumer added, “I’m pregnant—Amy Schumer”. Once fans were on Yellin’s page for the official announcement, they were hopefully engaged enough to watch the rest of Yellin’s political breakdown. That’s smooth, Schumer.
