Ever since Amy Schumer, 34, and Ben Hanisch, 29, made their relationship publicly official they have been laying the cute on really thick. Last night they smeared Instagram with a bit more of their adorable mushiness.
It was just a few weeks ago when Amy showed the world her brand new boyfriend, Ben, in an Instagram post. But while many people believe that he is her very first fling, she assured PEOPLE magazine that while she does love him, he certainly isn’t her first. She said:
“We’re in love and it’s really exciting. I’ve never been dating anyone that the public’s really known about. But I like that everyone thinks I’ve been single my whole life. They’re like, ‘She got her first boyfriend!’ and I’m like ‘No, I’ve dated people over the years.”
Being on tour is hard. Being away from family is hard. Being away from a new relationship just sucks! On Monday evening Amy posted an Instagram photo saying how she was “missing” her crew. The picture was a black and white shot of a bunch of people all standing in a circle holding hands. Right beside Amy was her beau, Ben. She captioned it:
“Missing these people on the road.”
Ben is a furniture designer from Chicago and seems to also be quite smitten with the no-filter comedian. Just an hour before Amy’s post, Ben posted his own Instagram photo! It was a beautiful shot of the couple from Sunday’s Critics Choice Awards. He captioned it:
“One more from last night because this girl looked insanely gorgeous and I’m in love with her.”
Pretty adorable considering they are still early in their relationship! I’m hoping these two stick it out long term…they’re just too sweet!
