Amy Schumer marries fiancé no one knew she had

Comedienne Amy Schumer has tied the knot in an intimate ceremony in Malibu, California, despite no one even being aware she was in a relationship until days ago.

The comic married Chris Fischer, a chef, in front of friends and family on Tuesday, People reports.

Schumer confirmed the marriage with an Instagram post that featured a series of photos from the day, captioned simply with one word: "Yup."

Incredibly, no one was ever aware Schumer and Fischer were dating, let alone engaged, until four days ago.

Schumer had posted another image on Instagram on Saturday (US time) after an appearance on The Ellen Show, in which she and Fischer were sharing a passionate kiss.

A follow-up Instagram post shows the pair's private wedding was still relatively star-studded, with the likes of Jennifer Lawrence, Chelsea Handler, Larry David and Jake Gyllenhaal in attendance.

Schumer also denied rumours she was pregnant, and used the huge public interest her wedding generated to bring attention to Everytown, a gun safety charity.

It is not known how long Schumer and Fischer had been together ahead of their wedding.
