Amy Schumer‘s father Gordon lives in a nursing home as he needs care for multiple sclerosis which he has had for over 20 years.
And on Tuesday the 38-year-old I Feel Pretty actress went to visit him along with her son Gene.
But the stand-up comedian did not go inside and opted instead to wave to her dad through the window of his nursing home to avoid contact during the spread of COVID-19.
There for daddy: Amy Schumer ‘s father Gordon lives in a nursing home as he needs care for multiple sclerosis. And on Tuesday the 38-year-old I Feel Pretty actress went to visit him along with her son Gene
Amy was dressed in a blue sweat outfit and a black coat with white sneakers. She had on no makeup and her blonde hair was pulled back.
The comedienne held Gene in one arm and a sign for her father in the other.
The sign read, ‘Hi Grandpa! We love you!’
The actress was in great spirits as she smiled away on the sidewalk with a green lawn behind her as well as a market.

Little Gene, who turns one in May, had on a cap and a puffy jacket.
Amy’s father Gordon was diagnosed with MS when Amy was in high school.
It came at a bad time: her dad’s furniture business went under and he filed for bankruptcy and at about the same time her parents split up, which she has detailed in her autobiography.

Colin Quinn played her father in the film Trainwreck as Amy’s character is seen visiting with him as he sits in a wheelchair.
And when Amy filmed the 2017 film Snatched with Goldie Hawn, she asked the veteran actress to visit her father, which she did.
He was so happy to meet his crush, that Gordon broke into tears.
Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects the brain and spinal cord, according to WebMD and early MS symptoms include weakness, tingling, numbness, and blurred vision. Other signs are muscle stiffness, thinking problems, and urinary problems.
Amy has been careful to stay indoors during COVID-19 which has taken 1,550 lives in New York State alone as of Tuesday morning.
On Saturday night, the star took to Instagram to send ‘love to all the pregnant ladies’ who are currently in quarantine amid the coronavirus pandemic.
‘We are thinking about you, too,’ captioned Schumer, who shared a topless throwback portrait of herself cradling her then newborn son.

Since Schumer was sans shirt, the actress plastered two flame emoji’s over her private bits.
In the black-and-white photo, Schumer, visibly make-up free, can be seen sitting in a chair in her post-labor hospital room, while baby Gene slept on her lap.
Schumer and her husband Chris Fischer welcomed their first born just a year after tying the knot during a ceremony in Malibu, California in 2018.

This is not the first time that Amy has addressed quarantining with her nearly 10million Instagram followers amid the coronavirus pandemic.
To provide example of ‘proper social-distancing,’ Schumer recorded a video of herself and Tony award-winning pal Jerry Zaks acting out the recommended ‘six foot’ distance just last week.
‘Social distancing with Jerry Zaks. #cherrypie,’ captioned Amy who could be seen taking cautious back-and-forth steps away from Zaks.
‘Step forward…step back…now THAT is social distance,’ instructed Amy, while she held on tightly to her tiny pooch in the video that has garnered over 800,000 views.
Schumer’s due diligence to maintain social distance and, for the most part, remain quarantined comes in the wake of New York amassing nearly 5% of the world’s coronavirus cases, according to the New York Times.
Last Sunday, Schumer and her husband enjoyed a family stroll at a local NYC park, but the comedian practiced what she preached and kept her distance from fellow park goers.
