Amy Schumer isn’t mincing words when it comes to her relationship with Meghan Markle.

While the two have never formally met, Amy Schumer isn’t planning on getting to know her anytime soon. The female comedian, 37, said in a video segment for In Style Magazine this week that the Duchess Of Sussex is her “nemesis” for getting pregnant around the same time as her.

“So, maybe I’m feeling competitive, like, ‘Oh, Meghan looks better than me and she has a tiny small bump and she’s wearing high heels and I already look 10 months pregnant and I’ve been wearing flats for the last four years,'” she joked.

The public has been captivated by both Markle and Schumer’s high profile pregnancies since they were announced earlier this year.

“Women have been made to feel so bad about themselves, it feels great to take the reins and be like, ‘None of that,’” @AmySchumer tells @RomyOltuski of the new size-inclusive clothing line, @LeCloudClothing, that she created with stylist @LeesaEvansStyle. The clothing, which goes up to size 20, ranges from $38 to $248. “You can walk in a room and not worry about your clothes anymore: ‘Is this showing? Is this pulling?’” she says. For this shoot for our January issue, she called up some of her closest friends to model it with her, including Leesa, comedy singer @BridgetEverett, and comedian @MarinayFranklin.

Schumer has had a relatively difficult time with her pregnancy. She was hospitalized last month after she began experiencing complications with extreme nausea and canceled a comedy routine to deal with the issue.

Meghan Markle, on the other hand, seems to be having a relatively worry-free pregnancy. (RELATED: Pregnant Amy Schumer Hospitalized. Here’s What We Know)

Both women are expecting their first children sometime in Spring 2019.
