Amy Schumer's had a wonderful few years, enjoying the domesticity of marriage and motherhood. In several comedy specials, Schumer was indifferent towards those milestones, mostly focusing on her career.

Her films "Trainwreck", "Snatched", and "I Feel Pretty" Schumer have earned her reputation as a comedian and writer. Funnily, a common pattern in her films were women who denied themselves to be loved, then eventually let love in. Now that she has accomplished so much, it seems right that she would celebrate success with a family.

She is incredibly understanding and patient, and in return, he gives her unconditional support. Plus, he's a chef at Martha's Vineyard, so he 's a dreamboat who can cook.
