On Thursday, the comedian posted an extremely cute photo to her social media accounts of the two of them eating ice cream at a café.

“I’d like to introduce all y’all to Jenney,” Hannah wrote.

“She’s a producer extraordinaire. She’s funny and very talented at reciting facts. It is a joy to behold.

“We got married in January and we are very chuffed about it.

“For the record: this is me gushing. I am full of very positive feelings. This is a nice story.

“My heartfelt thanks to everybody who voted for marriage equality.”

Congratulations, Hannah and Jenney!
