Amy Schumer Just Changed Her Son’s Name Because It Sounded Like ‘Genital’

Written by on April 14, 2020

Amy Schumer and husband Chris Fischer have modified the title of their firstborn son after realizing they made a little bit of a humorous mistake along with his moniker.

The comic defined the title swap for his or her 11-month-old on her podcast, “three Ladies, 1 Keith” ― and apparently, some folks noticed this coming. 

“So, do you guys know that Gene ― our child’s title ― is formally modified?” Schumer mentioned to co-hosts Rachel Feinstein, Bridget Everett and Keith Robinson throughout an episode launched Tuesday on Spotify. 

“It’s now Gene David Fischer. It was Gene Attell Fischer, however we realized that we, accidentally, named our son ‘Genital,’” she mentioned “Gene Attell seems like ‘genital.’” 

The visitor on the present, actor and comic Claudia O’Doherty, mentioned her mother had famous the “genital” challenge. 

“My mother pointed that out to me truly,” O’Doherty mentioned to laughs from the hosts. “My mother was like, ‘Amy’s known as her son “genital.”’ And I used to be like, ‘What are you speaking about?’ After which, she was proper.” 

“After which, ‘genital fissure,’” somebody on the podcast added, to which Schumer agreed and repeated her son’s former title so it gave the impression of “genital fissure.” 

Even some media shops thought the infant’s title was a prank when Schumer introduced it again in Might 2019. 

Schumer and her husband initially gave Gene the center title “Attell” after her good friend, comic Dave Attell. The “I Really feel Fairly” actor mentioned that Attell didn’t thoughts the title change.

Gene now shares a center title, “David,” with Schumer’s dad. So ultimately, all of it labored out for everybody ― particularly Gene.
