Amy Schumer reveals her Husband Chris Fischer Suffers from Autism Spectrum Disorder

Comedian-actress Amy Schumer opens up about her husband Chris Fischer suffering from autism spectrum disorder.

During her live show in Chicago for her upcoming second Netflix stand-up comedy special: Growing, Hollywood actress Amy Schumer made a surprising revelation addressing that her husband Chris Fischer suffers from an autism spectrum disorder.

As a matter of fact, according to Schumer, she found about her chef husband's autism disorder soon after the couple started dating two years ago in late 2017.

Dressed in a navy blue knee-length dress with her blonde hair put in a high bun, the 37 years old comedian starts sharing to the crowds: "I knew from the beginning that my husband’s brain was a little different than mine."

Autism Spectrum Disorder as what used to be known as Asperger’s before is a condition that affects the development of a person's social behavior and communication.

The 'I Feel Pretty' actress says: 

"My husband was diagnosed with what used to be called Asperger’s. He has autism spectrum disorder. He’s on the spectrum. And there were some signs early on."

Giving a few examples, Amy shares a story at some time before when Chris “kind of froze and became a lighthouse, opening and closing his mouth” instead of helping her after she fell.

The James Beard Award-winning cookbook author can’t lie too. Every time the actress asks his husband if she looks good in a new outfit, his response might include something like: "You have a lot of other clothes, Why don’t you wear those?"

Schumer continues adding that his disorder qualities and knowing that he suffers from the autism spectrum were actually what made her fall in love with him. The actress also took to her Instagram on Monday to thank Chris who kept her going throughout her pregnancy.

Amy is presumably eight months old pregnant to her first child with husband Chris who she married in February last year. Pregnancy journey hasn't been easy for the 'Trainwreck' star. Only last year in December, Schumer shared a video of her puking in a public restroom to her fans on social media.

Schumer didn't forget to mention her pregnancy stories during her hour-long show either. Showing off her baby bump with two Band-Aids that covered her belly button, she says her pregnancy complications including severe morning sickness makes her throw up an  ‘Exorcist’ amount every day.”

As a matter of her fact, her uneasy pregnancy journey even led to the comedian on canceling the remainder of her tour dates last month. Luckily, by observing her performance from last night, it appears the actress is doing good lately.
