Amy Schumer joked that it’s “disgusting” for people to have sex with their spouses because she sees them as “family” to each other.
The comedian, who has been married to chef and farmer Chris Fischer since 2018, opened up about the comment during an appearance Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, as the Los Angeles-based show will be broadcasting from Brooklyn, New York for a week.
When titular host Jimmy Kimmel asked Schumer how she was doing and what she was up to, the life & bed star, 41, joked that she “mostly messed around with Adam Levine” in relation to the infidelity allegations, which he recently denied.
After Kimmel asked if her husband was okay with it, Schumer drew more laughs before commenting, “We have a good sex life… So we figured the best day of the week to have sex is always tomorrow… We’re like, ‘We ate today , maybe we won’t eat tomorrow. It’s going to be a big day for us.'”
“But let’s just be honest,” the Oscars 2022 co-host continued. “It’s weird having sex with your spouse.”
When Kimmel asked what she meant by that, she replied, “Because that’s your family… Vacations together, you know. He’s my emergency contact… It’s gross.”
“I see what you mean,” Kimmel replied. “It’s like having sex with a favorite uncle,” Schumer agreed.
During her appearance on the show, the New York native Schumer revealed that she and her family had recently moved to Brooklyn.
Schumer and Fischer are parents to three-year-old son Gene, whose name was changed by the couple after realizing their original choice sounded unfortunate.
Speaks on her podcast 3 girls, 1 keith Back in 2020, Schumer said her son’s original name was Gene Attell Fischer. Her son’s name is a tribute to Schumer’s friend, comedian Dave Attell, who appeared in Schumer’s film train wreck. Schumer appeared in his Netflix special Bumping microphones.
“So, do you know that our baby’s name, Gene, has officially been changed? It’s Gene David Fischer now,” the comedian told her co-hosts. “It was Gene Attell Fischer, but we realized we accidentally named our son Genital. ‘Gene Attell’ sounds like ‘genital’.”
Her co-hosts jumped in to point out the “genital fissure.” Her co-host Keith Robinson asked if she had spoken to Attell about the move, saying the comic was honored that Schumer named her son after him.
“His middle name is now David, which also comes after Attell, and my father’s middle name is David,” she explained in response.
At a performance on The Howard Stern Show Shortly after, Schumer said she had no plans to tell her son about his former middle name.
Schumer explained that she and her husband realized the naming issue about a month into parenthood.
“You guys are like the new parents, kind of tired and in ecstasy, and then, I don’t know if it’s a troll on the internet or anybody, and I read it and I was like, ‘Oh my god, ‘” she said.
When Stern said he assumed the comic was just for laughs, she said it was simply a mistake. “Everyone gave me credit and I just said ‘no’. It’s just a huge piece of shit,” she said.
