But what did she say? Well, she joked that their marriage is rather fake.

And now John Krasinski has hit back.

Keep scrolling to see what he's said.

Amy Schumer loves a good joke.

And now, she's made another one.

Comedian and actress, Amy Schumer, had a steady rise to fame.

Born June 1, 1981, in New York City, Amy began testing the waters with stand-up comedy in the mid-'00s.

The star gradually worked her way up the comedy club chain...

Although her first national exposure didn't come until 2007, where she placed fourth on NBC’s Last Comic Standing. 

And in 2011...

Amy released her debut stand-up album, Cutting before drawing in more attention for her The Comedy Central Roast of Charlie Sheen.

Just a year later, she got a shot of her own special on Comedy Central.

Her first comedy special, titled Mostly Sex Stuff, truly propelled her into comedy stardom.

Of course, it wasn't long before she was given the opportunity for her own show.

In 2013, the cable network aired Inside Amy Schumer - which became one of the most talked-about shows in comedy.

So, it's hardly surprising that she bagged a coveted Emmy for it.

The hit series won its first Emmy in 2015 for "Outstanding Variety Sketch Series."

Her big win spurred on her move over to the big-screen.

You've probably all heard of the movie Trainwreck, right? Well, the 2015 rom-com chronicles the story of a young magazine writer who is made to believe that relationships and marriages hold no value.

Amy's movie helped defy stereotypes surrounding female comedians.

She helped shed the archaic Hollywood bias that female comics are best suited for character roles.

But crushing stereotypes has long been a part of her comedy...

Amy has been praised for going where few comics dare to go -touching on topics like sex, relationships, and gender inequality.

Since the success of Trainwreck, Amy hasn't been short of other praise-worthy ventures...

In 2016, the star released her memoir, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo, which earnt a spot on The New York Times Best Sellers list. Amy also starred in the 2018 comedy I Feel Pretty, opposite Michelle Williams.

Amy hasn't been afraid to use her celebrity status to help create social change, either.

In August 2015, she teamed up with Senator Schumer to push for new gun control legislation on Capitol Hill.

The issue became personal for Amy after a mentally ill gunman killed 2 people and injured 9 others at a Lafayette, Louisiana movie theater that was showing Trainwreck.

"I’ve thought about these victims each day since the tragedy," Schumer said, "[The shooter] shouldn’t have been able to put his hand on a gun in the first place," the star said, according to Biography.

But good news was on the horizon for the actress...

After splitting from furniture designer Ben Hanisch in May 2017, Amy began dating chef, Chris Fischer. The couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in Malibu, before a star-studded ensemble that included Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, Jennifer Lawrence, Larry David, and David Spade. The pair announced they were expecting their first child on October 22, 2018.

And on May 5, 2019...

Amy gave birth to her son.

She was very open and honest about motherhood from the get-go...

All it takes is one look at her Instagram to prove she certainly doesn't sugarcoat the realities of giving birth and motherhood.

It wasn't long before they announced the name of their little bundle of joy...

Amy revealed her son was called Gene Attell Fischer, with his middle name acting as a tribute to their comic friend, Dave Attell.

But the name was very short-lived.

Why? Well, it seems there was quite a big issue.

The thirty-eight-year-old spoke about her son's name on her podcast, 3 Girls, 1 Keith...

The star soon found herself pointing out the fact that her son's name sounded like the medical term for your private parts. Yep...

So, Amy and her husband decided to change their son's name.

Probably for the best, right?

Schumer is continuing to share her son's biggest milestones with her followers on social media.

And not too long ago, the star posted a video to Instagram of the moment he said "dad" for the first time.

As you'd expect...

The footage was adorable!

"This video was clearly a surprise to us," Amy wrote in the caption.

"Getting to experience these first moments with my son makes me feel so lucky."

But, after watching, fans pointed one thing out.

Schumer's reaction well and truly stole the show - so much so, that it actually made her son burst into tears.

And now, Amy is in the headlines again.

This time for claiming that John Krasinski's marriage to wife, Emily Blunt, was all about publicity.

Talking about A Quiet Place II which was directed by John and stars Emily Blunt, Amy wrote:

I loved every second of @aquietplacemovie even better than the first one which blew me away. Amazing to be in a movie theater.
Although Ive said for a long time I think Emily and John have a pretend marriage for publicity. But I still think you should see it this rainy weekend.

And now?

Well John has only gone and hit back...

But what did he say... Well?

According to E News, Krasinski responded to Schumer in the comment section by writing:

Thank you Amy!... for blowing up our whole marriage spot.

Well he doesn't seem too fussed.
