Amy Schumer is dating a handsome 29-year-old furniture designer named Ben Hanisch. The two made it Instagram official over the past few days. Ben wrote about his bae first, and then Schumer let her followers know today that Ben is her Mr.
Amy is reportedly “so, so happy” according to People magazine’s source. “She calls him her boyfriend and says he constantly tells her how pretty, sexy and perfect she is. She feels like she hit the jackpot.”
Ben also gets her sister’s stamp of approval. Her sister, Kim Caramele, has always said that she doesn’t like the guys Amy dates. Luckily Amy doesn’t have to worry about Benjamin ’cause “her sister loves him and that’s important” to the comedienne.
On New Year’s Day, Hanisch posted the picture above with the caption: “Sometimes in life you get extremely lucky, and the smartest, funniest, most beautiful woman comes along when you least expect it. Here’s to what adventures 2016 brings!” Schumer commented on the picture, joking, “I’m pregnant. I didn’t know how else to tell you.”
The Trainwreck star also posted a pic with Ben on Tuesday at the White House with the caption: “Fam and man at the whitehizzy.”
Hanisch founded a furniture design company called The Last Workshop and had previously been a design consultant for HGTV.
When Barbara Walters recently asked Schumer if she’ll marry and have children within the next five to ten years and Amy replied: “I would love those things, but I don’t really see it for myself. I hope that happens, but I don’t know how realistic it is.”
Naturally folks online are hating on this couple, which is so predictable. Amy has several haters who say she isn’t funny. It’s like, RELAX, just don’t watch her show, movies or TV specials if you think she sucks! Geezus.
Anyway, it isn’t surprising that Ben is cute. Amy has been vocal about her preference for good looking men and Anthony Jeselnik is kind of gorgeous (he has the perfect smile!). Secondly, most of Amy’s comedy is about being a single woman, right? That’s probably how her fans and haters want her to remain. Unhappy trolls will always say something stupid, but what’s surprising to me is that she’s already letting this guy accompany her to the White House?!?!?! How long have they been f**king?
And lastly, Amy’s traveling schedule is intense, but I can see this relationship working. Both of her siblings are already married and if this guy has any semi-functioning brain cells, unlike Casper Smart, he will lock this one down immediately! CONGRATS!!!
