Amy Schumer announces her newborn son's name - and it is pretty unusual

Unusual but oh so adorable.

Amy Schumer has revealed her newborn son's name - and it's pretty unusual.

The comedian and her husband, Chris Fischer, announced late on Monday evening that they had welcomed their first child.

She shared a photo of herself cradling their son, while Chris leaned in to give her a kiss.

"10:55 pm last night. Our royal baby was born," she captioned the shot.

Shortly before Gene's birth on Monday, Amy shared a shared a photo of her "Met look for this year".

She was seen posing on the iconic steps on the way to the hospital while wearing some leggings, a grey top, and a cardigan.

Amy informed her fans that she was having a boy over the weekend following a long post about food.

Not dissimilar to the way she announced her pregnancy, she added: "Also we are having a boy" to the end of the post, allowing only the most dedicated of fans in on her secret.

Amy suffered from severe hyperemesis during her pregnancy leading to her having to cancel many shows during her third trimester.

The comedian was hospitalised on more than one occasion and frequently joked about the sheer amount that she was puking.

She and husband Chris married in February of last year in a secret ceremony in Malibu.

They had been together for just four months.
