It's no secret that Amy Schumer and her boyfriend Ben Hanisch are head over heels for each other. Ever since confirming their relationship earlier in the year, the duo have openly admitted their affection for each other on Instagram, posting too-cute snaps along with double-tap worthy captions.

Now Schumer is taking their romance to the next level, opening up to Jimmy Fallon on last night's episode of The Tonight Show. "We're great. We're really good," she told Fallon when asked how their relationship is faring. "We met and like totally fell in love and it's been really good, and it became viral Internet news. I think it's because he's really cute and people were like, 'What? Dating Amy? He has all his teeth!' Like, people were shocked. They were shocked."

While the Internet may have been shocked, Hanisch's family has been super welcoming. "They're great," she said of meeting his entire family. However, they did run into a few hiccups when the news of their relationship first broke. "I told them, 'Look, journalists are going to call you, because it's what they do. And they're going to come to the house,' and they did." Schumer advised Hanisch's mom, Deb, to reply to any questions with no comment, but when put on the spot she got flustered. "Not even 10 minutes later I get a Google alert from Time magazine that Deb was like, 'I've never heard of her before in my life!' Too far, Deb! Too far. You took it too far, Deb. She's so sweet."
