The 34-year-old funnywoman memorialised some of bizarre moments she experienced as a single woman in her hit 2015 film Trainwreck, but cracking jokes about being in the dating game may prove to be past date material for the star, with Schumer debuting her new beau on Twitter Tuesday 5 January (16).

The actress shared a picture of herself standing with boyfriend Hanisch and two of her relatives outside the White House in Washington D.C., captioning the image with: "Fam and man at the whitehizzy". The group visited the White House to attend President Barack Obama's press conference on gun control, a matter she has campaigned for in the past.

Hanisch also took to Instagram to profess his love for the star, sharing a picture of them snuggling together before a gorgeous body of water with mountains in the background.

"Sometimes in life you get extremely lucky, and the smartest, funniest, most beautiful woman comes along when you least expect it," he wrote in the image caption. "Here's to what adventures 2016 brings!"

Schumer couldn't help but remark on the sweet post Hanisch made, joking in the comments section: "I'm pregnant. I didn't know how else to tell you.”

It's claimed Schumer and Hanisch couldn't be more delighted with their new relationship.

"Amy is so, so happy," a source told People magazine. "She calls him her boyfriend and says he constantly tells her how pretty, sexy and perfect she is. She feels like she hit the jackpot."
