Amy Schumer Reveals Why She Fired Penn Badgley’s Wife As Her Doula

Domino Kirke, Penn Badgley’s girlfriend, wasn’t someone Amy Schumer wanted to fire, but she did, and she finally gave Badgley an explanation.

The “Anticipating Amy” actress revealed to Badgley on his webcast “Podcrushed” on Wednesday that she fired Kirke as her doula because Kirke was just too darn good.

After a very difficult pregnancy, Schumer invited her son Gene with partner Chris Fischer in 2019. On the webcast, Schumer explained how Kirke supported her throughout her pregnancy and how she wanted to keep him around after the baby was born but couldn’t handle it.

“Domino resembles a goddess. She’s a real drifting alarm around the house,” Schumer told the “You” star. “She’s so similar to, simply beautiful, and when she contacts you, you only sort of dissolve. What’s more, she was actually a relative. What’s more, I just felt so powerless, I was like, ‘I can’t have this Botticelli fucking goddess drifting around my home when I am like, draining out.” Though the comic realizes it was a “pretty uncalled for” reason, she was recuperating from a cesarean segment, which negatively affected her.

“I simply didn’t have the solidarity to permit myself the advantage of having her around our home,” she made sense of. “I was like, ‘I figure you can’t come any longer.’”

The “Life and Beth” star was open about having hyperemesis gravidarum, which causes outrageous sickness and retching, all through her pregnancy. Schumer needed to drop the rest of her parody visit when she was hospitalized for the condition.

“It’s so irritating on the grounds that the entire time everyone’s letting you know that [having a child is] going to be worth the effort, and you’re very much like, ‘Shut the fuck up, I hurl the entire day,’” Schumer said on Badgley’s digital broadcast. “And afterward you’re like, ‘Goodness, my God,’ it’s insane. Furthermore, [kids] continue to improve and that’s only the tip of the iceberg and more tomfoolery.”
