Amy Schumer And Her New Husband Spotted, Looking Madly In Love

“I’m probably like 160 pounds right now,” Amy Schumer famously announced, accepting her Glamour Woman Of The Year Award in 2015, “And I can catch a d**k whenever I want.”

The brazen comedian is all done with her days of catch-and-release, it seems. Amy Schumer married chef Chris Fischer in February, and the pair have at last been spotted back from their Italian honeymoon, looking ludicrously happy. Schumer, 36, and Fischer, 37, who wed in a covert ceremony in front of a select crowd of friends and family that included Larry David and Jennifer Lawrence, were spotted holding hands on a Miami beach on Wednesday. Schumer is promoting her new movie “I Feel Pretty,” and Fischer is, one likes to think, serving proudly as her trophy husband, personal chef, best friend, and soulmate.

The couple were seen barefoot in the sand, holding hands, and, to use a journalistic term, glowing. To complete the look of perfect partner, Fischer wore a crimson hoodie advertising Bernadette Peters’ casting in the revival of the musical, “Hello, Dolly,” suggesting good taste. “You’re lookin’ swell,” Chris and Amy!
