The comedy star has taken to Instagram to post a series of behind-the-scenes video clips from her celebration, with one video revealing her husband Chris Fischer serving her a tasty-looking cake that featured a sarcastic message.

The cake read: "I'm leaving you. This was the only way I could think to do it."

Amy was joined at the birthday bash by her friends and family, and her two-year-old son Gene.

The stand-up comedian - who married Chris in 2018 - captioned her Instagram post: "My [cake emoji] 40 (sic)"

Amy and Chris have been going through a period of adjustment over recent months, after their nanny left her position to focus on her studies.

The loved-up couple have subsequently tried to fill the void at home, but in March, they joked about their chaotic lifestyle without childcare.

In a social media video from inside their messy kitchen, Amy quipped at the time: "Actually, like we were worried about not having childcare but we're actually like doing really well - and I think we're a lot more capable of a lot more than we realised we were."

Meanwhile, Amy previously admitted to loving married life, even though their relationship hasn't changed over the years.

The Hollywood star explained: "I feel exactly the same as before I was married – but I’m psyched. I love him.

"Like, I’m f****** ... it feels like having a partner. It feels like not being alone."

Amy also admitted that their romance is different to anything she's previously experienced.

She said: "I can’t believe I dealt with any of that b******* before! This was like, oh my God I f***** love this person, and I admire him, and we’re a team and he was ready."
