Schumer and Fischer named their son Gene Attell. Schumer posted a picture on Instagram of Fischer holding baby Gene.

"Gene Attell Fischer. And his dad Chris," she captioned the post.

People reported Schumer and Fischer may have chosen Attell after Schumer's friend and fellow comedian Dave Attell. Attell invited Schumer to perform with him in New York in January.

Kathy Griffin, Jennifer Coolidge, Loni Love, AnnaSophia Robb, Ashley Graham, Katie Couric and Andy Cohen were among those to congratulate Schumer in the comments of her post.

"I'm so happy for you, mama!" Griffin wrote.

"Killer name!! Awesome photo!!!! Wow! Congrats to you guys!!" Coolidge added.

Schumer gave birth to Gene on Sunday, one day after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle welcomed their baby boy. Schumer announced her son's birth on Instagram.

"Our royal baby was born," she wrote.

Schumer and Fischer married in February 2018 and announced Schumer's pregnancy in October. Schumer said on Late Night with Seth Meyers in March that Fischer's autism diagnosis has affected their marriage in a positive way.
