Amy Schumer has revealed that she’s in love for the first time! And the lucky man in question? Her boyfriend of nearly a year, Chicago-based furniture designer Ben Hanisch.

The couple are going strong, posting happy holiday snaps to Instagram and meeting each other’s friends and family; however, Amy admits that love is driving her crazy.

Speaking with US Marie Claire magazine, the 35-year-old comedian explains that while she’s been in relationships before, none of them compare to her romance with Ben.

‘I feel like Ben is the first guy who’s really been my boyfriend,’ she says. ‘There are guys who, if they heard me say that, would want to punch me in the face, but yeah, it’s the truth.’

The actress and writer adds, ‘Being in love is the scariest thing in the world. You want to f—ing cry and scream. I can’t handle it.’

‘Every time we say goodbye, I think, “This will have been a nice last week together”.  Or I tell myself nothing is real and he’s going to leave me and tell me he never loved me,’ she continues.

‘I feel so bad for him. How exhausting it must be dating me.’
