Amy Schumer appeared on “Late Night With Seth Meyers” on Wednesday night, where she dished details about how she’s felt about becoming a new parent.

  • Schumer said she was given parenting advice from Natalie Portman, but it hasn’t worked out the way she thought it would.
  • “You don’t know how good you’re going to be a parent. I got some nice advice from Natalie Portman, who was like, ‘You have more instincts that you know you have.’ And what I’m finding is that Natalie Portman is a huge liar,” she told Seth Meyers.

But, she said, “my instincts are all just dead wrong,” Schumer said, according to People magazine.

  • Schumer said she and her husband Chris Fischer will sneak out of their house and leave their baby with a nanny. She said she read a book, though, that advised against it, according to BuzzFeed News.

Parenting surprise

Schumer recently told HelloGiggles that she was surprised about how much she wanted to be around her child, too.

  • “I’m surprised by how much I want to be with Gene,” Schumer said. “When I was pregnant, I remember telling the people in my life, ‘I’m gonna work a lot, and I’m gonna be busy (when he’s born),’ but I just can’t wait to see him. If he’s napping or I’m working, I always can’t wait to see him.”
