Amy Schumer took the long way around to announce she and husband Chris Fischer are expecting.

The comedienne and actress broke the news Monday on the Instagram stories of friend and journalist Jessica Yellin.

Yellin, of the site NewsNotNoise.org, showed at the end of a list of Schumer’s recommended congressional and gubernatorial candidates the line: “I’m pregnant-Amy Schumer.”

Schumer also shared on her Instagram page an edited photo showing her and her husband’s heads photoshopped on to the bodies of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who also recently announced their pregnancy.

The cryptic Instagram post included a recommendation to fans to check out Yellin’s page for some “exciting news.”

Schumer is known for her liberal politics: She was recently arrested protesting the confirmation of Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court.

The 37-year-old made her film debut in the 2015 film “Trainwreck.” She starred this year in the movie “I Feel Pretty.” Schumer married Fischer, a chef, in February.
