The sweet moment happened during playtime, with Schumer and their nanny, Jane, sitting on the floor.
In the footage, the adults laugh and praise Gene after he mutters “mom,” smiling as Schumer goes in for a kiss on the cheek and asks again:
“Can you say mom?” and while Gene doesn’t quite respond, he looks absolutely adorable.
“The world is burning, but this was a nice moment,” Schumer captioned the post on Instagram. “Please make a voting plan and make sure everyone in your phone has a voting plan supermajority.com can help.”
In May of 2019, Schumer welcomed her first child in May of 2019 with chef husband Fischer. Back in June, Schumer complained on how quickly Gene is growing up, posting to Instagram at the time, “I don’t want this age to end HELP!”
Schumer also updated her fans with a milestone of Gene’s: his very first temper tantrum. “… Any advice for a 14-month-old who just had his first tantrum? I feel like he’s testing me,” Schumer wrote on Instagram.
And for Father’s Day, Schumer wrote a sweet tribute to Fischer, posting a photo of him holding their newborn last year.
“Happy Father’s Day Chris. We love you. I’m jealous that you make gene laugh so much harder than me,” she wrote.
When speaking about how motherhood has changed her as a person “in a million ways,” Schumer told Entertainment Tonight in November that she has become kinder to her own mother, Sandra.
“I’m just nicer to my mom,” she said at the time. “I didn’t know I could love someone that much — no offense to my husband. … But yeah, I think we’re both shocked by the level of love that’s possible.”
Previously, Schumer recalled the roller coaster of emotions of her pregnancy, revealing to PEOPLE in October how despite it being “terrifying,” it was still “worth it.”
“It’s all terrifying. Giving birth is the most terrifying thing you’ll ever do that’s completely worth it,” she said. “Having a c-section was … my pregnancy was so hard, I was just very ready to meet my son.”
