Amy Schumer Celebrated Mardi Gras in New Orleans — and Had the Best Time Eating Beignets at Café du Monde
"You never know when a craving's gonna come on, and there's no better city than New Orleans," mom-to-be Amy Schumer joked, powdered sugar covering her face.
Do-nut mess with Amy Schumer‘s pregnancy cravings!
The actress and comedian shared a video over Mardi Gras weekend that showed her indulging in one of New Orleans’ most famous desserts: beignets from Café du Monde.
And no trip to the iconic doughnut shop is complete without a face full of powdered sugar — which Schumer, 37, put on display with no shame, from her mouth to her cheeks and forehead.
“So, would you say this is for … the baby, or … ?” a man behind the camera can be heard saying as the mom-to-be reaches inside the paper bag for more.
“You never know when a craving’s gonna come on, and there’s no better city than New Orleans,” Schumer replies.
The hilarious clip comes two weeks after Schumer shared videos that showed her joining two different parade practices at the city’s Audubon Park.
In the first video, she could can be seen running up to a line of dancing women, who were preparing for the upcoming parades of carnival season that kicked off in January (Mardi Gras is Tuesday). Schumer positioned herself at the back of the group and copied their moves almost exactly — and the locals didn’t even notice!
In the next clip, Schumer found a different group of women to dance with. “Sometimes you have to do it twice in one day with different groups,” she wrote, adding the hashtag, “#Nola.”
Late last month, Schumer revealed the news on Instagram that she was canceling the rest of her comedy tour due to pregnancy complications related to hyperemesis gravidarum — a form of acute morning sickness that the actress has been battling throughout her pregnancy.
“Due to complications from hyperemesis I am not cleared to fly for the next couple of weeks. I am going to cancel the remainder of my tour. Refunds are available at point of purchase,” the I Feel Pretty star wrote.
“The baby and I are healthy and everything looks good. But I am in my 3rd trimester and I am still nauseous all the time and vomiting,” she explained. “I vomit mostly every time I ride in a car even for 5 minutes.”
