For many newlyweds, the next step after returning from the honeymoon is to change one or both of their last names. Not so for Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer: Following their dreamy, weeklong Italian getaway, Schumer revealed on her Instagram Story over the weekend that she won't be altering her social security card any time soon. According to People, in the now-expired video, the comedian's father, Gordon, was the one to ask how his daughter and new son-in-law would tackle what can be an extremely thorny issue for a newly married couple.

"Are you still Amy Schumer or are you Amy Fischer now?" Gordon reportedly asked, sending his daughter into incredulous laughter. "I'm not Amy Fischer! Do you remember who Amy Fischer is?! The Long Island Lolita!" Schumer replied, referencing Amy Fisher, the young woman who was charged in 1992 with attempted murder on the wife of the much-older man she had been seeing as a teenager. "No, I'm keeping my last name — I'm keeping your last name," Schumer said in the video, which was captioned "#longislandlolita."

Schumer, 36, and Fischer, 37, who were first spotted spending time together in November 2017, married in a secret ceremony in Malibu the day before Valentine's Day. As seen in videos and photos Schumer and her guests have shared since the special day, the I Feel Pretty star wore a gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown, she and the James Beard Award–winning chef exchanged hilarious (and NSFW!) vows, and the all-star guest list included Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Larry David, among many others.

J.Law, for one, gave the ceremony two thumbs up: "It was beautiful," Schumer's pal told Entertainment Tonight just a few days after news of the nuptials broke. "It was very sudden, but it was...I was sobbing the whole — his vows were stunning. It's when two people really love each other and they really mean it, it shows, and it was a beautiful ceremony and an amazing time. I couldn't be happier for them."
