Schumer told,

I knew from the beginning that my husband's brain was a little different than mine. I have to start this over because I really want to get this right because I love him very much.

She added,

My husband was diagnosed with what used to be called Asperger's. He has autism spectrum disorder. He's on the spectrum. And there were some signs early on.

She went on saying,

Once he was diagnosed, it dawned on me how funny it was, because all of the characteristics that make it clear that he's on the spectrum are all of the reasons that I fell madly in love with him.

Moreover, Schumer took to her Instagram on Monday, 18th March paying tribute to her husband and thanking him for being so open. "Thank you to my husband, Chris who has kept me going during this pregnancy," wrote Schumer alongside a poster for Growing.
