Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer attend the opening night of "Colin Quinn: Red State Blue State" at the Minetta Lane Theatre on Jan. 22, 2019, in New York City.

(CNN) - Amy Schumer has dropped some news about her baby's gender.

The comic and actress is expecting her first child with husband Chris Fischer.

Schumer posted a video Tuesday on social media.

"I know it probably seems like I've been pregnant for 1,000 years to you guys, but I've been working really hard," she said in the video. "It's not all just relaxing and eating doughnuts."

Naturally she then took a bite out of a doughnut.

"What I wanted to announce was the baby's gender," Schumer said. "Which we're so excited to say that we don't care what the baby's gender is. However the baby identifies is fine. Whatever the baby's sexuality is."

She then joked that "any way the baby identifies is cool with us as long as it doesn't identify as a DJ cause that's heartbreaking."

Instead of a big reveal, Schumer shared that her Netflix comedy special titled "Growing" comes out March 19.

Schumer and Fischer married a year ago, and she announced her pregnancy in October.

She later shared she was suffering from hyperemesis gravidarum -- severe nausea and vomiting that can plague some pregnant women.
