Last week, we all learned that Amy Schumer has a new boyfriend! The actress seems totally smitten by her new love. "She calls him her boyfriend and says he constantly tells her how pretty, sexy and perfect she is. She feels like she hit the jackpot," a source tells People. The couple did not make their red-carpet debut at Sunday's Golden Globes, but they are definitely social media official. Here are 5 things you need to know about Amy's new beau, Ben Hanisch.

They didn't meet on Bumble

A few outlets reported that Amy and Ben met on the dating app Bumble (the one where women have to make the first move), which isn't true. Amy set the record straight on Twitter by letting her followers know that she has never used Bumble. Who cares how these two lovebirds met, as long as they're happy!

Ben is a furniture designer

So basically, he is Aiden from Sex and the City. But seriously, Ben is a super talented furniture designer who founded his own company, The Last Workshop. He also was a design consultant for HGTV. Dude knows his stuff.

He's from Chicago

Yep, Ben Hanisch hails from Chi-Town. You know who else lives there? Amy's half-brother Jason Stein. It all makes sense...

He met her family

Ben met Amy's siblings when the couple visited the White House to support President Obama's call to limit gun violence. She posted a photo collage to Twitter the same day with the caption "Fam and man at the whitehizzy."

He can take a joke

In Amy's world (which we all live in), this is a very good quality. Apparently, she trolls his Instagram with comments like "I'm pregnant" and "I'm pregnant I didn't know how else to tell you." Also, she tweeted, "IAS season 5 got picked up! And my boyfriend and I got engaged and married and had a baby and he cheated on me with the nanny! Entertainment."
