"We just heard the heartbeat," Amy Schumer says in this sneak peek at Expecting Amy, "and that s**t is deep."
Don't expect her HBO Max docuseries to be all tears and existential wonder, though, because even in life's most emotional moments, you can still count on Schumer to deliver a punchline. The above clip, debuting exclusively on ET, shows two such instances: First, when a pregnant Schumer and husband Chris Fischer hear their baby's heartbeat for the first time.
"What's up, baby? You are very little. You're the size of a pea," she says to camera. "And you're going to get bigger, and we don't want you to be body-shamed. Eventually, you'll be the size of a lima bean and that's fine."
Later, we see the moment the couple learns they're having a boy, prompting tears, hugs and a sobbing Schumer to quip, "Down with the patriarchy! I can't believe we're going to have another white man in this house!"
Billed as Jerry Seinfeld's Comedian if he had been pregnant, the three-part docuseries from director Alexander Hammer follows Schumer through the highs and lows of her pregnancy, while also pulling back the curtain on her marriage and plans to film a comedy special.
All three parts of Expecting Amy are streaming on HBO Max on July 9.
