In a new interview, the comedian/actress candidly discusses the ever-changing role of fathers and the enduring significance of motherhood in her family and society.

AceShowbiz - Amy Schumer, mother and breadwinner, has shared her thoughts on the evolving dynamics of parenthood in a recent podcast appearance. Speaking on the "Kelly Corrigan Wonders: About Your Mother" podcast, Schumer emphasized that despite her role as the primary income earner in her family, she firmly maintains her position as the mother to her four-year-old son, Gene.

"You know, he has so many jobs that a mom has, but Mom is still Mom," Schumer said of her husband Chris Fischer, acknowledging the multifaceted nature of parenting while recognizing the distinct role of the mother figure.

However, Schumer is quick to clarify that this is not meant to diminish the contributions of great fathers and same-sex couples raising children. She believes that women possess exceptional communication skills, which are vital in navigating both family matters and global issues. "We're having them navigate global [issues] women are good communicators. Can we get some women in there?" she joked.

Schumer's perspective is part of a broader conversation on the changing roles of parents in society. Men are increasingly taking on more responsibilities traditionally associated with mothers, while women are pursuing careers and contributing financially to their households. Nonetheless, Schumer maintains that certain fundamental aspects of motherhood remain constant.

She also reflects on her own relationship with her mother, acknowledging both the love and support she has received and the challenges she has faced. "I have major empathy for all of them, and I see all the same things in myself," Schumer said, recognizing the shared experiences and pressures that mothers encounter.

Schumer's appearance on the podcast is part of the "About Your Mother" series, which features guests sharing their intimate relationships with their mothers and the life lessons they have learned along the way.
