Comedian and new mom Amy Schumer shared a picture of herself over the weekend hiking with her newborn, Gene, while wearing only a bra, mesh hospital underwear and sneakers. She didn’t have on pants or a top.
She wrote, “5 weeks. Hospital underwear for life!” referencing how long it’s been since she and husband, Chris Fisher, welcomed their son.
Schumer also shared a photo of herself snuggling with Gene wearing a striped, quarter-sleeve shirt and hospital underwear.
Some followers in the comments praised the actress for being so candid, including model Tess Holliday.She wrote, “Thanks for being so raw and vulnerable about the realities of post partum life. There is so much pressure placed on new moms to ‘bounce back’ & it’s not real life. You’re doing amazing & you’re amazing & those hospital undies are COMFYYYYY.”
La La Anthony added, “Amy the legend!!!!!”
Others criticized Schumer, asking her to “put some decent clothes on and grow up.”
One person wrote, “I’m sorry but I think your taking this whole ‘natural’ thing to an extreme… brush your hair and put some decent clothing on.. child birth is a great thing but you don’t have to let yourself go in return.”
