Amy Schumer

The stand-up comic, actor, mom to baby Gene and chronic over-sharer—in a good way—took us along as she took the stage with hyperemesis gravidarum.

Image-conscious celebs don’t usually share the painful or unflattering parts of parenthood, but stand-up comic and actor Amy Schumer goes there. In January, she posted a photo of her bruised tummy on Instagram and revealed she was undergoing IVF. In April, she confessed she had baby-name regret and legally renamed her then-11-month-old Gene David from Gene Attell (say it three times fast and you’ll get it). In July, she released Expecting Amy, a candid HBO miniseries documenting her horrific pregnancy, through which she continued working despite experiencing an extreme form of morning sickness called hyperemesis gravidarum.
