Whether she's on stage or on screen Amy Schumer is known for her brazen,no-limits comedy, but her Instagram followers known that behind the scenes the comedian is even more irreverent. So it's no surprise that Schumer is taking the same unabashed approach to being pregnant.


For most celebrity moms-to-be pregnancy entails at least one over-the-top maternity shoot, but leave it to Amy Schumer to once again buck tradition and go her own way.

Instead of being surrounded by flowers or traipsing through a forest in a couture ball gown the comedian opted to strip down and chase ducks naked through a New Orleans park for a priceless maternity shoot that fans are just in love with.



"On a chilly Nola morning it's best to chase ducks with nothing weighing you down except a baby," Shumer wrote on Instagram.

Schumer also took on the traditional "walking through a forest" shot with her characteristic humor, posing naked in a Louisiana swamp while covering herself with two handfuls of moss.

The photos accompany a new, "brutally honest" profile of Schumer by the New York Times in which Schumer talks about her polarizing comedy and the challenges of pregnancy.

"Thank you @zinomanjason for your profile on me," Schumer wrote in the caption. "Brutally honest. My favorite kind of honesty. See you in another 10 when you write about me again."


The maternity shoot was classic Schumer and fans were loving her humor and fearlessness.

Much like her comedy Schumer has taken a self-depreciating, take no prisoners approach to pregnancy.

It's been a wild ride so far and Schumer has invited fans to follow her journey every step of the way, posting often about the up and downs on the road to motherhood.

Earlier this month Schumer shared a hilarious post on Instagram about pregnancy cravings and she chowed down on some beignets.



And back in February Schumer showed off her moves as she joined a dance team practicing for Mardi Gras in a New Orleans park.



Though pregnancy hasn't been all fun and beignets. Schumer suffers from a condition called hyperemesis. Instead of the traditional morning sickness Schumer feels almost constantly nauseated.

Schumer told the New York Times that by her estimate she has vomited almost 1000 times since becoming pregnant.


But being who she is Schumer hasn't shied from sharing that part of her pregnancy too.





As one might expect from a comedian though Schumer has channeled all the joy and discomfort of pregnancy into her new Netflix special called Growing which will be available on the streaming service March 19th. If it's even half as funny as her maternity shoot you aren't going to want to miss it.

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.
