Amy Schumer got one amazing holiday gift in new boyfriend Ben Hanisch. The super hot furniture designer was able to lock down the ‘Trainwreck’ actress and she’s finally sharing the good news. So let’s get to know more about Ben!
We’re so thrilled that Amy Schumer, 34, has found an amazing guy who adores and respects her – and boy is he ever a hottie! Chicago custom furniture designer Ben Hanisch, 29, has captured Amy’s attention in a very big way, and been a totally supportive boyfriend literally from the stroke of midnight on 2016.
Let’s get to know five things about the man who captured Amy’s heart:
1. Ben loves furniture design and has a successful Chicago-based company.
The Last Workshop is the name of the design shop Ben founded. Many of his pieces include simple yet modern tables, dressers and other living pieces. Think of him as a much sexier version of Carrie Bradshaw’s boyfriend Aiden from Sex & The City.
2. Ben really loves Chicago!
Ben posts tons of photos from the Chicago skyline and street scenes to his Instagram. He’s an avid phot0grapher and captures the mood of the city brilliantly. He’s said “This city will forever feel like home to me,” in a recent photo of the snowy downtown.
3. Ben is not afraid to wear his heart on his sleeve.
In his first official post about his new girlfriend Amy, he wrote on his Instagram on Jan. 1, “Sometimes in life you get extremely lucky, and the smartest, funniest, most beautiful woman comes along when you least expect it. Here’s to what adventures 2016 brings! Awww, what girl wouldn’t kill for a boyfriend so thoughtful and caring!

4. He’s supportive of Amy’s career and personal causes.
In the few weeks they’ve been together, Ben joined Amy at a comedy appearance she made in Seattle on New Year’s Eve and was there with her under the city’s Space Needle as fireworks went off at midnight. He also accompanied her on a trip to Washington D.C. on Jan. 5 when she stood in unison with President Obama as he made an executive order tightening gun sales background checks – and issue close to her heart after a man shot up a theater in Louisiana where her Trainwreck film was playing last July, killing three and injuring nine.
5. He appreciative of Amy’s cold-weather parkas.
While some celebs dress to the nines even in the cold weather, Amy was pictured in both her Seattle cuddle shot with him and her photo outside the White House wearing a big green parka. Totally practical and warm, even if it looks like she’s going to snowmobiling instead of meeting the president. Always be yourself Amy, and cheers to Ben who appreciates it!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Amy’s new guy? What a catch!
