While most of the world is rejoicing in Meghan Markle’s pregnancy and the fact that there will be a new royal baby next spring, there’s one person who really isn’t all that happy about it.
Stand-up comedian and actress Amy Schumer has been cracking jokes and making sassy comments about the Duchess of Sussex’s pregnancy since Kensington Palace broke the big news in October.
And it’s all because Schumer, 37, is also pregnant with her first child and she can’t help but compare herself to the royal.

The I Feel Pretty star announced she was expecting on Instagram by sharing an image of her and husband, Chris Fischer’s faces edited onto Prince Harry and Meghan’s bodies.
Since then she’s shared several more hilarious posts about the Duchess and most recently has gone as far as to say she’s her pregnancy "nemesis".
Speaking in a video for Instyle Magazine, called ‘How to not give a s*** what anybody thinks’, the comedian, also 37, revealed why it is she feels this way.
She explained: "Why is she my nemesis? Because she’s pregnant at the same time as me and I’m not letting her get away with that."

Schumer added: "So maybe I’m feeling competitive, like, ‘oh Meghan looks better than me and she has a tiny small bump and she’s wearing high heels and I already look 10 months pregnant and I’ve been wearing flats for the last four years."
This competitive side was evident on Monday evening, when Meghan made a surprise appearance at the Fashion Awards, to present her wedding dress designer, Clare Waight Keller, with the Designer of the Year award.
The Duchess looked stunning in a one-shoulder black gown, that showed off her baby bump – something that didn’t go unnoticed by her "nemesis".
Shortly after Schumer shared a photo of Meghan’s glamorous look on social media, cropping off her head and captioning it: "Loved my outfit during my set tonight".

While Meghan has been attending lavish events and enjoying life as a royal, Schumer has been highlighting just how unglamorous pregnancy can really be.
The actress, who has been suffering with hyperemesis gravidarum, recently shared a video of herself throwing up in a public bathroom before going on stage for a show.
She wrote: "Deep in my second trimester and all I can say is nope! Yesterday I did a show 90 minutes later."
