The Real Reason Amy Schumer Changed Her Son's Name

Celebrity - News


In the April 14, 2020 episode of Amy Schumer Presents: 3 Girls, 1 Keith, the comedienne admitted she realized her son's original name, Gene Attell Fischer, sounded like "genital fissure." After making that discovery, she and husband Chris Fischer swapped in a new middle name.

"It's now Gene David Fischer. It was Gene Attell Fischer, but we realized that we, by accident, named our son 'genital,'" Schumer, 38, explained to her viewers and co-hosts. While Schumer didn't notice right away, some of the internet certainly picked up on it back when Gene joined the world in May 2019.

The laughs didn't stop once Schumer's podcast episode ended. Over on Instagram, the comedienne once again joked about the mishap. "Oh, like you never named your kid Genital fissure!!!!!!!" she hilariously captioned a selfie of her and her hubby, Chris Fischer.
