It was date night for first time parents-to-be Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer on Tuesday.

The pregnant I Feel Pretty star, 37, and her chef husband, 39, attended the opening night of her friend (and Trainwreck costar) Colin Quinn’s new off-Broadway show, Red State Blue State

Posing on the red carpet at The Minetta Lane Theatre in New York City, Schumer and Fischer were all smiles — her baby bump popping in a green wrap dress with black stockings.

We couldn’t have laughed harder and I couldn’t have worn a worse bra,” Schumer joked on Instagram.

Schumer and Fischer’s night out comes as the couple, who wed in February 2018 in a private ceremony in Malibu, are counting down the weeks until baby.

Earlier this month, the pair took a “last-minute trip” to the Caribbean island of Canouan.

“Even tho I vomited the whole way there and back we had a really nice time,” Schumer captioned a photograph of herself lounging on the beach, her baby bump just visible under a black swimsuit.

Vomiting has been a consistent problem for Schumer throughout her pregnancy. She’s been open about her battle with hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition marked by persistent sickness which can lead to dehydration and weight loss.

In November, Schumer was hospitalized for the condition. It’s also caused her to postpone a few stand-up shows.

“The last few days have been tough. I’m grateful as hell and know it’s temporary but tough just the same,” she wrote in late November.

One thing that makes it easier to deal with? “Knowing that I’ll feel better after I throw up,” she told Today co-host Savannah Guthrie during a sit-down at the beginning of January. Schumer added at the time that she’s “midway” through her pregnancy.

Meanwhile, Schumer has kept her sense of humor throughout it all.

On Jan. 3, she wished Fischer a happy birthday by noting how he is slowly starting to resemble Emeril Lagasse.

“Happy birthday Chris. I love the man you’re turning into ❤️,” she captioned a side-by-side photo of Fischer and Lagasse.

Of course, Fischer and Lagasse have more than just their looks in common. Fischer won the 2016 James Beard Award for American Cooking for his book The Beetlebung Farm Cookbook, which offered a variety of seasonal New England recipes. Fischer also used to write a weekly column for the Vineyard Gazette called “Farm to Typewriter,” which covered a variety of subjects from “meaty mushrooms” to a lengthy history of his family’s farm in Martha’s Vineyard.
