Just a few hours before Meghan Markle did, Amy Schumer became a mom.

The comedian wrote on Instagram that she gave birth to a baby boy at 10:55 p.m. on Sunday, not long before Meghan welcomed her own bundle of joy early on Monday. Schumer even joked that "our royal baby" had been born.

In a photo shared on her page Monday, the glowing mom is shown laying in bed with her new baby on her chest. Husband Chris Fischer leans down for a kiss on her cheek.

And on her way to the hospital to give birth, Schumer made sure to have a little fun. She shared photos of herself posing in front of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.

Schumer revealed in October that she was expecting her first child. Going along with the fact that her pregnancy timeline was similar to the royal couple's, she posted a photo of Prince Harry and Meghan that had her and her husband's faces photoshopped onto them.

"Chris and I are thrilled and almost positive he’s the father. I look forward to competing with Markle every step of the way,” Schumer joked in a statement to the Los Angeles Time.

The pair married in February 2018.
