She’s risen to fame as an outspoken comedian, but Golden Globe nominee Amy Schumer used one word that we didn’t think we’d hear from her so soon.
While strutting the Golden Globe red carpet in a black-and-white off the shoulder gown, the Trainwreck star dished on her relationship status with her new boyfriend, furniture maker and Hollywood stranger Ben Hanisch. While Schumer waited until the new year to debut her beau, the lovebirds have wasted no time getting serious about each other.
To start, Hamisch has already met the blond beauty’s parents and he was her date to the White House when she attended the president’s speech on gun control.
Still, the most recent mark of their serious relationship arrived Sunday evening when Schumer used this four letter word to describe their connection.
“We’re in love and it’s really exciting,” the actress told People.

While the gushing girlfriend said she is “proud” to share these momentous occasions with her hunky new partner and that they are “really happy”, she’s surprised that the public is so shocked to learn she has a boyfriend.
“I’ve never been dating anyone that the public’s really known about,” Amy continued to People (via JustJared). “But, I like that everyone thinks I’ve been single my whole life. They’re like, ‘She got her first boyfriend!’ I’m like, no, I’ve dated people over the years.”
Still, this was the first Golden Globes red carpet she’d ever walked—and she brought her lucky man along for the ride.
The happy pair posed for a candid shot before the official red carpet festivities began, all while giving us major senior prom flashbacks.
“My clique,” she described the shot of her, her man and her sister, Kim Caramele, all decked out in their black tie threads.
That’s definitely one clique we’d love an invitation to join.
