Mothers can agree that the greatest gift is having a child.

But even blessings such as the miracle of birth have consequences, say, on the social lives of parents.


Amy Schumer and her husband Chris Fischer welcomed their first "royal baby" boy on May 5 – within an hour and a half before Meghan Markle and Prince Harry welcomed their first child who is also a boy.

However, as far as actress Jennifer Lawrence is concerned, it's "ho's before bro's," or in this case, babies.

While her bestie is undoubtedly over the moon for Schumer – who suffered from a debilitating pregnancy – Lawrence misses her late night interactions with Schumer prior to the arrival of baby Gene Attell Fischer.

Lawrence's frustration was evident in a hilarious text exchange that wound up being a one-sided convo for the Dark Phoenix and The Hunger Games actress.

Schumer shared a screenshot of the text in which Lawrence had an urgent inquiry pertaining to Hulu's The Handmaid's Tale.

Lawrence just needed to know about a certain plot point from the critically-acclaimed show.

"You up? I have questions about hand maids take."
"Tale"
"It's an emergency"

When she didn't hear back from Schumer, who presumably used to be a night owl before adjusting to motherhood, Lawrence cranked things up a notch.

"Amy!!! What did she do on season 1 to deserve being in the gallows on season 2"

After carrying on a conversation with herself, Lawrence finally addressed something based on a hunch.

"I can't remember where I left off. Are you asleep bc of the baby??? Are you asleep before 11? Is this bc of the baby? Don't make me resent the baby"
"Wow"
"Ur really asleep before 11. I'll be damned"

The Trainwreck actress and comedian WAS asleep and responded to Lawrence the following morning.

"Everybody keeping their cool about me having a baby," Schumer wrote, with the words scrawled across a screenshot of Lawrence's needy text.




On June 5, Schumer acknowledged a sacrifice had to be made.

"Oh ok so I can't watch handmaids anymore. #filledwithregret"

This isn't the first time Lawrence engaged in a solo convo with Schumer via text.

In April, she wrote:

"What're you doing tonight? You and chris wanna get dinner? Or hang? Also about to go to the park."

After she was left hanging, Lawrence canceled the proposed rendezvous and wrote:

"Haha I can't get dinner tonight I have plans."

Schumer finally chimed in and quipped:

"Good talk."

Schumer and Lawrence have been very close since the pair were spotted vacationing in the Hamptons in 2015.

A movie starring the two as sisters and written by both of them is still in development.

During her pregnancy, Schumer suffered from a condition called hyperemesis gravidarum in which the 37-year-old actress had perpetual morning sickness and left her dehydrated, forcing her to cancel shows.

After successfully giving birth to Gene, courtesy of her birthing team including her husband Chris's doula, she wrote in an empowering pregnancy takeaway post:

"Men are cool and whatever but women are f*****g warriors and capable of anything."

It's been over a month, and as Schumer is acclimating to her new role as a mom, dishing on The Handmaid's Tale can wait.

Right, Auntie Jennifer?

If you missed what happened in season 1 OR season 2 of The Handmaid's Tale, you can get season 1 here and season 2 here. Of course, you could always read the book.

Food is a totally subjective thing. What has one person drooling might leave another dry-heaving just thinking about.

Having said that, some stuff is just plain ... wrong.

Secrets, we all have them. Some will be spilled over time and some will go to the grave.

Mine are going to the grave. Just in case you were waiting for a truth sharing moment, there it is.

Others often feel the need to shed their secrets. Secrets can weigh on you.

So every once in awhile people start letting loose, because it's the only way to free yourself.

That's why you get a therapist, to share the most shocking, intimate details of your life. To spill and be free.

Or... naturally, you come to Reddit.

Sometimes it's time to stop the world for a few minutes, relax, and unwind. Slip into a warm bath or have a nice glass of wine on the side to really drive that comfort and relaxation home.

We work ourselves to death most days without any acknowledgment for the absolute limit to which we are pushing our bodies. With the world constantly swirling around us as this happens, it can feel a little like there is no respite.

That's why we need to learn things that really comfort us. About the world, about other people, whatever. We need some comfort to take so that we can bring some stillness into our crazy world.

Everyone has an opinion and apparently that opinion is golden advice. (Two different things)

You can give opinions, but know what you're saying and sharing.

Advice is more... heavy. It's definitive.

So beware and take "advice" with a grain of salt.

Redditor PsychedelicAirFusion wanted to hear about the times other people should've just stayed quiet with their opinions, by asking:

"What's the worst advice you have received?"
