Amy Schumer tripped up a handful of fans and friends after posting a photo of herself holding a newborn baby in her arms over the weekend.

On Sunday, the Growing comedian — who is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer — posted a sweet snap of herself getting some mommy “practice” in ahead of her due date.

“Met this little honey baby today,” Schumer captioned her image showing the child resting on her lap, which was obscured by a special pillow. “Chris and I got some practice in. Thanks Pete and Jess. We love you!! Baby Syd!!!”

While Schumer, 37, made it clear in the caption that the child wasn’t her own, several of her fans and famous friends seemingly missed the memo, commenting on the image with celebratory messages.

“Mazel,” wrote Courtney Love, while Tom Green added, “Congratulations, Amy!”

Over the weekend, Schumer — who has been battling hyperemesis gravidarum, a form of acute morning sickness, throughout her pregnancy — also shared that she was “feeling strong and beautiful.”

Showing off her bare baby bump in a mirror, the Trainwreck star posted a photo of herself posing in the bathroom, while wearing nothing but black underwear and a beige bra.

“Feeling strong and beautiful today,” she captioned the image, adding the playful hashtag, “#didntpuke.”

In February, Schumer had to end her comedy tour early “due to complications from hyperemesis.”

“I am not cleared to fly for the next couple of weeks I am going to cancel the remainder of my tour,” the I Feel Pretty star wrote on Instagram at the time, adding, “The baby and I are healthy and everything looks good. But I am in my 3rd trimester and I am still nauseous all the time and vomiting.”

“I have a pretty good attitude about it and some days I feel good for a couple hours,” the actress continued. “But mostly it’s sucks [sic]. I wanted to push through and do my shows. Because I hate letting people down and I love stand up and money! But more than that I have to think about my health and the baby.”

Despite its hardships, Schumer has also had some fun throughout her pregnancy, including a recent extended visit to New Orleans.

During a trip to the world-famous Café du Monde, the star helped herself to a bag of beignets. It resulted in Schumer’s face getting covered in powdered sugar, which she proudly put on display in a silly Instagram video.

“So, would you say this is for … the baby, or … ?” a man behind the camera could be heard saying in the clip posted last month as the mom-to-be reached inside the sugar-filled paper bag for more.

“You never know when a craving’s gonna come on, and there’s no better city than New Orleans,” she replied.
