The stand-up comedian, 40, spoke openly about her feelings on a new edition of Chelsea Handler's podcast Dear Chelsea, claiming she "doesn't have a choice" when it comes to his diagnosis.
"I believe the statistics indicate that he will very certainly have autism," she told Handler.
"Each parent's experience with this is unique. Having a child with severe autism is beyond my wildest dreams," the Emmy winner explained.

She continued, "However, if Gene does turn out to have ASD, I'm not seeking for signals in an upsetting way, and I'm not hopeful either way."
The New York native revealed in her Netflix series Growing in 2019 that her James Beard Award-winning spouse, 42, was diagnosed with autistic spectrum disorder as an adult.
The Trainwreck star continued, "Most of my favorite people are on the spectrum." According to Schumer, an official diagnosis would have to wait till her son is older.
"He's two and a half, and I believe children aren't diagnosed until they're about six years old. You can notice some symptoms, but the diagnosis doesn't come until later, and I can honestly say I don't care either way," she explained.
Amy went on to say that all that matters is that he is happy. "All you want is for your children to be healthy and happy."
Schumer welcomed her first child, a son, in May 2019, a year after marrying the American chef.
