Amy Schumer took the long way around to announce she and husband Chris Fischer are expecting a baby.

The comedian and actress broke her baby news Monday on the Instagram stories of friend and journalist Jessica Yellin.

Yellin, of the site NewsNotNoise.org, showed at the end of a list of Schumer's recommended congressional and gubernatorial candidates the line: "I'm pregnant—Amy Schumer."

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