Date of Birth: June 1, 1981

Schumer was born into an upper class family in New York City but things changed even before she became a teenager as her father’s lucrative baby furniture company went bankrupt. This was the beginning of her family problems and her parents ended up divorcing. She worked as a bartender and as a waitress at some point in her life.
Schumer’s 2016 memoir, The Girl with the Lower Back tattoo landed on a best sellers list and she has also gained prominence today as an actress. Read on as we let you in on some details about her family, siblings and her new life as a wife.
Who are Amy Schumer’s parents?
Gordon Schumer (father)
When Amy was 12, her father was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and soon became confined to a wheelchair. The gun control advocate was able to make one of her father’s dreams come true when she set up a meeting with Goldie Hawn who Gordon said was the love of his life. That same 2016, Schumer bought back the family farm her father lost to bankruptcy when he was diagnosed with MS.
All through her life, she has shared a sweet bond with her father and was so emotional in November 2017 when her father stood for the first time in over two decades with the aid of a medical device.
Sandra Schumer (mother)
Amy had worshipped her mother who was a teacher to the deaf but at 13, she found out that her mum was leaving Gordon to be with her best friend’s father, Lou. Now they are okay.
