“Amy and Ben have ended their relationship after thoughtful consideration and remain friends,” a rep for Schumer tells PEOPLE.
The couple was together for nearly a year and a half, though the two were last photographed together in January and had been appearing less frequently on each other’s social media.
Schumer, 35, last posted a photo with Hanisch, 30, on March 12 ahead of the Golden Globes, which they attended together. The Chicago-based furniture designer did not accompany the star at the premiere of her latest film Snatched earlier this month.
In an interview with Howard Stern on May 3, Schumer had said that she and Hanisch were still dating.
When the host asked if they were discussing marriage, Schumer replied: “We are talking about today. I love the idea of committing to someone and making that choice and I want to have a family but right now, we are not in talks.”
When Stern asked how Schumer and Hanisch keep their relationship going amid their schedules, she said: “It’s good to have a lot of space.”
The comedian and Hanisch met on a dating app around November 2015. They went public with their then-budding relationship in January 2016, when Schumer called Hanisch her “man” after a visit to the White House.
“[He] is the first guy who’s really been my boyfriend,” she told Marie Claire in August.
Schumer recounted their first meeting in her book, The Girl with The Lower Back Tattoo. “We smiled at each other and in that moment, everything felt right,” she wrote.
“Things were just really easy with him,” Schumer told PEOPLE about their romance that summer. “There were no games, no waiting three days. It was clear and easy. He was so sweet. He didn’t know who I was. He’d heard my name.”
Still, Schumer said she was cautious about getting ahead of herself. “I want to be [as] hopeful in love and commitment as possible,” she told PEOPLE, adding, “[But] I come from parents who have each been married three times.”
As for her views on marriage, she said, “I can’t lie about it. I don’t have this blind optimism.”
On their year anniversary last November, both Schumer and Hanisch took to social media to celebrate. “We both weren’t looking for a relationship at the time, but something felt right from the very first night we met,” Hanisch wrote on Instagram.
“We ended up spending six 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,” he added.
Schumer responded with her own Instagram post, writing, “A year ago today I met the love of my life. Happy anniversary f— face. #Iwantoseeotherpeople.”
