Amy Schumer has been talking about her husband on their Netflix special a lot lately. Schumer has revealed that his husband Chris Fischer has Autism Spectrum disorder. According to Entertainment Tonight, the actor revealed that she knew from the very beginning that his husband had a brain different than hers. She further says that she has had to almost start their relationship all over again because she wants to ensure she gets everything right.

“ My husband was diagnosed with what used to be called Asperger’s. He has autism spectrum disorder. And there were some early signs early on.” She revealed.

Schumer revealed that she found it funny when her husband was diagnosed with the condition. She says that all the characters that Fisher has as a result of the condition, are what made her fall madly in love with him. Apparently, he says whatever is in his mind and doesn’t give a hoot about social norms and what people expect him to do or say.

The couple is currently expecting their first child. Promoting her “Growing” Netflix special on Instagram on Monday Schumer heaped praises of her husband. She wrote;

“ Thank you to my husband, Chris who has kept me going during this pregnancy. His willingness and desire to be open with the world about himself and our marriage is courageous and beautiful.”

The couple tied that knot in February last year in a colourful wedding held in Malibu, California. They seem to be enjoying their marriage if the recent comments by Schumer are anything to go by. Back in October, she joked about competing with Meghan Markle every step of the way. Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex is expecting her first baby in May this year.

The Trainwreck starts seems to be living her best life. We can only hope she continues to enjoy life so that she can keep cracking us up with jokes, and making great movies. Fisher is a farmer, a chef, and a James Beard Award-winning cookbook author.

Schumer’s Netflix special begins streaming this week. It is her second comedy Netflix special and she is very enthusiastic about it. She has already announced how proud she is about her second Netflix special, and that she cannot wait to share it with the world. We will all sit back and wait for it because it is certainly going to be amazing.
