    Amy Schumer is getting parenting support from her friends and co-stars

    The ‘I Feel Pretty’ star became a mother for the first time five months ago when she and her husband Chris Fischer welcomed their son Gene Attell into the world, and has now said she’s been receiving expert advice from her close pal Julia Louis-Dreyfus, as well as her make-up artist Kyra Panchenko


    She said: “Julia Louis-Dreyfus has been really helpful to me, and my makeup artist who I’ve done a couple movies with, Kyra Panchenko.

    “If you ask for what you need with production in our business, people have been really willing, in my case, to help.”

    But despite the tips she’s been getting, Amy, 38, still finds parenting “challenging”, especially when she has to work long hours.

    She added to People magazine: “The work is so specific. When you’re shooting something, it’s a 12-hour day, if you’re lucky. Leaving the house sometimes before he’s awake and getting home after he’s gone to sleep - that is really challenging.”

    Meanwhile, Amy recently said she feels “empowered” to be returning to work after her maternity leave, and knows she is luckier than some other new parents.

    She said: "It's empowering. It's like you get a piece of yourself back, but it is hard.

    "I'm just so fortunate, you know? 'Cause a lot of people have it a lot harder.”

    The 'Trainwreck' star had a difficult pregnancy and suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum - extreme morning sickness - but admitted it was all "worth it".

    She explained: "It's all terrifying. Giving birth is the most terrifying thing you'll ever do that's completely worth it.

    "Having a c-section was ... my pregnancy was so hard, I was just very ready to meet my son."
