UPDATE at 12:35 p.m. PT: Despite much speculation, a source told E! News that Amy Schumer and her boyfriend Ben Hanisch are not engaged.


Are Amy Schumer and Ben Hanisch ready to take the next step in their relationship?

Both penned messages to each other on Instagram Saturday to celebrate their one-year anniversary. The shock comic and actress' was sweet and pretty NSFW.

"A year ago today I met the love of my life," she wrote, alongside a photo of her beau. "Happy anniversary f--kface. #Iwantoseeotherpeople."

However, Hanisch's message was more of a pledge, which drew much speculation the two were ready to take the next step in their relationship.

"A year ago I met the love of my life," he wrote on Instagram, alongside a pic of the two. "We both weren't looking for a relationship at the time, but something felt right from the very first night we met. We ended up spending 6 days in a row together. This pic was taken in New Orleans and was the night I knew I wanted to spend my life with her."

Ben's message had spurred an emotional response from his mother.

"I'm crying!" Deborah Hanisch wrote to him. "That is so touching & sweet, and all what I can say is that I've taught my son right, to love, respect and be humble & nice to all and especially to the one he truly Loves ~ AMY!! CONGRATS! I've got your wine ready for us to toast to!!"

Schumer and Hanisch, a Chicago-based furniture maker, made their romance Instagram-official this past January.

"Sometimes in life you get extremely lucky, and the smartest, funniest, most beautiful woman comes along when you least expect it," Ben wrote at the time.

Over the past year, he and Schumer have been photographed together at events such as the GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2016 and the 2016 Critics' Choice Awards.

And in true Schumer fashion, the comedienne has been candid about their sex life.

"We love having sex with each other, but there's no performing," she told Howard Stern in August. "He's so sweet."

This marks one of the longest public relationships for Schumer, who previously dated fellow comic Anthony Jeselnik and WWE star Dolph Ziggler, who many fans have speculated inspired Jon Cena's character of her boyfriend in Trainwreck, which she wrote and starred in.

"I feel like Ben is the first guy who's really been my boyfriend," Schumer told Marie Claire this past summer. "There are guys who, if they heard me say that, would want to punch me in the face, but yeah, it's the truth."
