Amy Schumer may have something cooking, but it’s not a baby.
The “I Feel Pretty” star shot down rumours that she and husband Chris Fischer are expecting their first child after a photo tied to the announcement of her new clothing line led fans to speculate she had a bun in the oven.
On Thursday, the 37-year-old standup comic shared a photo of herself on Instagram, accompanied by a cryptic message.”@leesaevansstyle and i are cookin somethin Up,” she wrote.
The phrase “cookin something up” and the fact that Schumer was seemingly pointing to her midsection led some fans to become convinced she was gesturing to a baby bump, and what she was cooking up was an infant. Meanwhile, a second shot in the same Instagram post depicts Schumer and her husband frolicking happily… much the same way that, say, expectant parents might.
However, it turned out that what Schumer was announcing was actually a new fashion line in partnership with her longtime stylist Leesa Evans, and the dress she wore in the photo was one of the pieces available.
In a followup Instagram post, Schumer tried to cut through the confusion by stating categorically (twice!) that “I am not pregnant.”
She continued: “It looked like I was pointing to a bump or something but I’m not. Leesa Evans and I have created a clothing line for all sizes and shapes and at a chill price point. That’s what I was trying to allude to but thank you for thinking of my womb.” Watch:
