Your pretend BFF Amy Schumer kicked off her 2016 with an insanely successful movie — Trainwreck is totally our new favorite bachelorette weekend flick — and a new relationship. Schumer and her hottie boyfriend Ben Hanisch announced their relationship in January and have been heating things up ever since. The comedian even dished that they've already hit a major relationship milestone: Meeting the parents.
During her Tuesday appearance on The Tonight Show, Schumer opened up to host Jimmy Fallon about her relationship with Hanisch. "We're great. We're really good," the Inside Amy Schumer star said. "We met and like totally fell in love and it's been really good, and it became viral Internet news. I think it's because he's really cute and people were like, 'What? Dating Amy? He has all his teeth!' Like, people were shocked," she joked, getting some raucous giggles from Fallon. "They were shocked."
The A-lister and her furniture maker boyfriend (who is basically a real life Aiden Shaw) recently flew to Chicago so the Trainwreck star could meet his entire family. It sounds like Schumer might be the first celeb Hanisch has dated — the comedian hilariously recalled giving his family a heads up about paparazzi. ""I told them, 'Look, journalists are going to call you, because it's what they do. And they're going to come to the house,'" the actress, 34, said. "And they did." Hanisch's mom, Deb, played it cool when the journalist called, but she may have played it a little too cool.
"I told her, 'Deb, they're going to call you. Just say 'no comment.' And she's like, 'Oh, I got it, Amy. Don't you worry. No comment. Not a problem,'" Schumer told Fallon. "Not even 10 minutes later I get a Google alert from TIME magazine that Deb was like, 'I've never heard of her before in my life!' Too far, Deb! Too far. You took it too far, Deb," the comedian joked, before sincerely adding. "She's so sweet."
Eeek! Talk about an awkward situation with a potential future mother-in-law (hey, we're hoping for wedding bells here!). But brides-to-be, take note: Keep Schumer's playful attitude in mind the next time your MIL makes an awkward comment about your bridesmaid dress colors.
The actress was able to laugh off Hanisch's mom's sweet attempt to play it cool. Now that Schumer's met the family and admitted the two are totally in love can we start hoping for some wedding news in the future? We're already dying to see Schumer's BFF Jennifer Lawrence as a bridesmaid!
