Amy Schumer is getting candid about her ever-changing role as a mom, and her evolving relationship with her son, Gene David Fischer.

The Life & Beth actress, 42, shares her four-year-old son with her husband Chris Fischer, a chef and farmer, who she married in 2018.

The stand-up comedian has long been forthright about not only her role as a mother but the ups and downs to it, including the impact of it on her body, and most recently joked about why her son has started to realize she's "stupid."

During a Wednesday, February 20 appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Amy first gushed about her son, telling host Kelly Clarkson: "He's so independent, such a fun vibe."

However, she then confessed: "He's just realizing that I'm stupid," to which Kelly replied with: "All parents relate to that."

Amy explained: "I think he really thought I knew what was going on, you know, he thought like, that I'm smart."

To prove her point, she recalled: "We were at the beach this summer, and the sun was going down over the ocean, [and] he goes, 'Mommy, does the sun sleep in the ocean?' and I was like, 'Nobody really knows what's going on with the ocean…'"

Kelly quickly related, and further joked: "My kids, the thing I probably say the most is 'I don't know let's Google,'" to which Amy added: "Yeah! Let's find out together!"

She then juxtaposed the throwback photo with a shot of her shortly after giving birth to her son, wearing a hospital gown and making a grumpy face.

"Warning 20 somethings I looked like this at your age. Swipe," she wrote in her caption, and cautioned fans: "Life is coming for you."
