Amy Schumer has made a very public apology to her baby son for accidentally giving him a name that sounded very rude...
Since the birth of her son last year, Amy Schumer has been making headlines for the hilarious mistake that she made with his name.
Comedian and actress, Amy Schumer, had a steady rise to fame.

The star gradually worked her way up the comedy club chain...Although her first national exposure didn't come until 2007, where she placed fourth on NBC’s Last Comic Standing.
And in 2011...Amy released her debut stand-up album, Cutting before drawing in more attention for her The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen.
Just a year later, she got a shot of her own special on Comedy Central.

Of course, it wasn't long before she was given the opportunity for her own show.In 2013, the cable network aired Inside Amy Schumer - which became one of the most talked-about shows in comedy.
So, it's hardly surprising that she bagged a coveted Emmy for it.The hit series won its first Emmy in 2015 for "Outstanding Variety Sketch Series."
Her big win spurred on her move over to the big-screen.You've probably all heard of the movie Trainwreck, right? Well, the 2015 rom-com chronicles the story of a young magazine writer who is made to believe that relationships and marriages hold no value.
Amy's movie helped defy stereotypes surrounding female comedians.She helped shed the archaic Hollywood bias that female comics are best suited for character roles.
But crushing stereotypes has long been a part of her comedy...

Since the success of Trainwreck, Amy hasn't been short of other praise-worthy ventures...
Amy hasn't been afraid to use her celebrity status to help create social change, either.

The issue became personal for Amy after a mentally ill gunman killed 2 people and injured 9 others at a Lafayette, Louisiana movie theater that was showing Trainwreck.

But good news was on the horizon for the actress...After splitting from furniture designer Ben Hanisch in May 2017, Amy began dating chef, Chris Fischer. The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in Malibu, before a star-studded ensemble that included Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Lawrence, Larry David, and David Spade. The pair announced they were expecting their first child on October 22, 2018.
She was very open and honest about motherhood from the get-go...
It wasn't long before they announced the name of their little bundle of joy...
The thirty-eight-year-old spoke about her son's name on her podcast, 3 Girls, 1 Keith...
So, what's his new name?
An easy mistake to make, right?Well, not all fans were convinced that this was a mistake and many thought that Amy did this on purpose as a publicity stunt.
However, this most certainly wasn't the case.In an interview with Howard Stern, Amy was joined by Gene for the video interview when Howard brought up the whole name situation.
Amy laughed and covered little Gene's ears..."Oh my God, don't tell him," she joked, "We're not telling him. It's so embarrassing."
She explained how she and Chris realized their mistake "a month in.""You know, you're like, the new parents and you're just tired and in ecstasy. And then - I don't know if some troll on the internet or somebody... I read it, and I was like, oh my God!"
You really can't unhear it..."You're going 'Gene Attell', it just - me, a filthy person - it never dawned on me. All the blood rushed to my head," she said, laughing.
And then referring to the incident as "the first of many failures"...
Since her interview with Howard...
Amy and her husband Chris appeared together on the live chat to discuss their life together in lockdown...

Amy sat Gene on her lap and said, "I mean, can you believe we did that?!"
via: TODAY"What kind of an epic…How am I going to apologize for that? Gene, we're sorry. We're so sorry," she added, then saying, "We fixed it."
Gene seems pretty happy... regardless of his name change!
via: TODAY"It just means that we're, like, unstable, I guess" she joked, to which Chris replied, "He'll find that out, though." What family isn't unstable though? Let's be real for a minute!
