Amy Schumer adores her husband, Chris Fischer, revealing on Instagram why their relationship works
If we could choose one celebrity to be our very best friend, Amy Schumer would definitely be a top contender. The absolutely hilarious actress and comedienne is one of the sassiest, most transparent, and straight-to-the-point stars in Hollywood. She doesn’t care who she offends or what anyone thinks of her. She is who she and that’s the person we love and adore.
While she spends much of her efforts on social media making us pee our pants laughing — whether it’s because she’s posting a photo of herself rocking hospital mesh panties on a country road, sitting on a toilet after peeing on a pregnancy stick, or taking her first post-birth poop in a sterile bathroom — she also has a sensitive side, especially when it comes to her husband, Chris Fischer. In a sweet new Instagram post, Amy explains why he is so special to her and what things were like before they welcomed son Gene.
“Before we had our little babe it was just us,” she wrote alongside of a photo featuring her husband and their dog, Tati. “I love chris so much.”
She continued by explaining the depth and meaning of their relationship. “I hope whoever you are with is so kind to you and also drives you crazy but you love them so much and you want to hang out with them more than anyone. That’s what we got and I’m grateful for this guy everyday even though he loves taking different routes every time we go somewhere and I like going the way I know. It’s good,” she concluded.
So sweet, right?
Schumer, who married her husband in February 2018, has always been candid about how awesome Fischer, who is on the autism spectrum, is. She recently discussed his diagnosis with Seth Meyers, revealing that “it’s been totally positive.” “I think a lot of people resist getting diagnosed and even some of their children because of the stigma that comes along with it,” she said. “The tools that we’ve been given has made his life so much better and our marriage and our life more manageable. I just wanted to encourage people to not be afraid of that stigma.”
She recently defended Chris, a chef, after someone asked her how she would “cope” with the possibility that her child could be on the spectrum as well.
“How I cope?” she responded. “I don’t see being on the spectrum as a negative thing. My husband is my favorite person I have ever met. He’s kind, hilarious, interesting and talented and I admire him. Am I supposed to hope my son isn’t like that?”
It’s so sweet seeing Schumer and her husband finding each other again post-baby. Any couple who’s had a baby can 100 percent relate.
