Amy Schumer announces pregnancy, endorses Kyrsten Sinema for Senate

Amy Schumer took the long way around to announce she's pregnant with husband Chris Fischer, and the comedian also endorsed several candidates in the upcoming midterm elections, including Arizona Senate hopeful Kyrsten Sinema.

The comedian and actress broke her baby news Monday on the Instagram stories of friend and journalist Jessica Yellin. Yellin, of the site, showed at the end of a list of Schumer's recommended congressional and gubernatorial candidates the line: "I'm pregnant-Amy Schumer."

Included in the list of endorsements was Democratic candidate Kyrsten Sinema who's battling Republican Martha McSally for Sen. Jeff Flake's Senate seat.

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