AceShowbiz - Chris Fischer's proposal to Amy Schumer is definitely memorable, but it's probably not one that she or other girls dreamed of. In her new comedy special "Amy Schumer: Growing", which has been released on Netflix, the 37-year-old details her husband's "whack" proposal.
The "I Feel Pretty" star says Chris proposed to her in the morning, when she was half-asleep. "The proposal was whack," she describes it. "That's, like, when people in a nursing home get engaged. Not, like, at sunrise, like I was still asleep. I was sleeping."
Amy goes on sharing that she still had both earplugs in and an eye mask on. "He comes in and I just, like, took one earplug out, I was, like, 'Eh?' And he just kind of threw the ring box at me and he goes, 'I got you this,' " she recalls. "I open it and he goes, 'Do you want me to get down on one knee?' And I'm like ... 'I guess not.' "
The former "Inside Amy Schumer" star says she went right back to sleep after that. "That's the truth. That's like a real-a** proposal, though," she tells the audience.
Amy and Chris tied the knot on February 13, 2018 in Malibu, California after a whirlwind romance. She revealed that the wedding planning only took a few days and they sent out invitations via text. The private, low-key nuptials were attended by A-list guests, including Jennifer Lawrence, Jennifer Aniston, Chelsea Handler and Larry David.
In the Netflix special, Amy also reveals that her husband has autism spectrum disorder and that's what made her fall for him. "I knew from the beginning that my husband's brain was a little different than mine," says the funnywoman. "My husband was diagnosed with what used to be called Asperger's. He has autism spectrum disorder. He's on the spectrum."
"Once he was diagnosed, it dawned on me how funny it was, because all of the characteristics that make it clear that he's on the spectrum are all of the reasons that I fell madly in love with him," she adds. "That's the truth. He says whatever is on his mind. He keeps it so real. He doesn't care about social norms or what you expect him to say or do."
