In Amy Schumers new Netflix special, Amy Schumer: Growing, she talks about how husband Chris proposed in a manner more suited for the elderly.
‘The proposal was whack,’ Amy said. ‘He proposed to me in the morning. That’s like when people in a nursing home get engaged. Not like at sunrise, like I was still asleep. I was sleeping.
‘And I sleep like I’m still in the womb: earplugs, eye mask, my mom’s legs around my shoulders.
‘So I’m in the womb, and he comes in and I just like took one ear plug out, I was like, eh?’ she said, making a face indicating she looked less than her best at the moment.
‘And he just kind of threw the ring box at me and he goes, “I got you this.”
‘And I open it and he goes, “Do you want me to get down on one knee?” And I’m like,’ she paused, making a face like she’s thinking about it, ‘I guess not.’
‘And then I went back to sleep. That’s the truth,’ she went on.
Amy opened up quite a bit about her relationship in the new special, including sharing the revelation that her husband is on the autism spectrum.
‘I knew from the beginning that my husband’s brain was a little different than mine,’ she said. ‘My husband was diagnosed with what used to be called Asperger’s. He has autism spectrum disorder. He’s on the spectrum.
