Amy Schumer and Chris Fischer’s Relationship Timeline 



After years of joking about being single and her dating life, Amy Schumer found love with husband Chris Fischer.

Us Weekly broke the news in November 2017 that Schumer was dating Fischer, a celebrity chef. They got engaged within a few months of seeing one another.

“The way that my now-husband proposed was so worthless,” Schumer jokingly lamented during her Saturday Night Live monologue in May 2018. “It was a dumb proposal. It was the morning. I was still asleep. He threw the box at me and said ‘I got you this.’ But that’s a realistic proposal.”

After a short engagement, Schumer and Fischer wed in an intimate ceremony in Malibu in February 2018. Since then, their romance has continued to heat up.

“Chris loves Amy so much. He loves when she is wild and unapologetic,” a source exclusively told Us in April 2022. “It’s one of his favorite things about her. When she is anxious he loves calming her down and being that support for her.”

The actress and Fischer expanded their family in May 2019, welcoming son Gene after a difficult pregnancy. (Schumer battled hyperemesis gravidarum.)

Ahead of Gene’s birth, Fischer was diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Schumer has been candid about what the diagnosis could mean for Gene.

“I think the statistics are pretty strong toward he will most likely have autism,” Schumer said on the “Dear Chelsea” podcast in March 2022. “Parents have different journeys with this. Having a child with severe autism is beyond my imagination difficult. But if Gene does wind up having ASD, I’m not looking for the signs in a way that are upsetting. I’m not hoping either way. You can see some signs, but the diagnosis doesn’t come until later and I can say honestly, I don’t have a preference either way. You just want your kids to be healthy and happy.”
