Amy Schumer caused a lot of discussion recently after realising she accidentally named her child 'Genital'.

Amy and her husband Chris named their baby 'Gene Attell Fischer' - after a friend of theirs. Her fans were quick to point out that 'Gene Attell' put together sounds a bit too much like genital...

In a recent interview with US radio host Howard Stern, the comedian spoke about when she and her husband realised what they'd done...

"You're like the new parents, just kind of tired and in ecstasy. And then ― I don't know if some troll on the internet or somebody *said something* ― and I read it, and I was like, 'Oh my God'."

"Because, you know, you're going 'Gene Attell.' Me ― who's like, a filthy person ― it never dawned on me," she continued. "All the blood rushed to my head and I was like 'Chris!'"

She went on to say that her close friends and family told her that it'd be fine, but she saw it as a parenting "failure."

"All you want to do is protect your baby and I right out the gate [did this]... the first of many failures."

"Everybody kind of gave me credit, and I was just like, 'No. That is just a huge **** up,'" she finished off by saying.

After all of this, Amy and Chris chose to change his name to 'Gene David Fischer'.
