“I wanted to share some news from our community, maybe it’s noise but it’s happy noise,” Yellin shared. “So 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. Now read all the way to the bottom, you’ll see there’s some news down there. Congratulations, Amy.”

At the bottom of the list, it read, “I’m pregnant-Amy Schumer.”

A short time later, the 37-year-old comedian posted a photoshopped a picture on her social media account replacing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s faces with her and Fisher’s photo. As previously reported, Markle announced last week that she was expecting her first child.
