It’s a match made in comedian heaven! Jo Koy and Chelsea Handler have gone Instagram official and the photos are so sweet.
“He’s on tour, I’m on tour, sometimes we tour together. #VaccinatedAndHorny #FunnyIsFunny. All coming to a city near you!” Handler captioned a photo of herself and Koy kissing. Celebrities in the comments showed full support for the couple.
“So happy for you!” Paris Hilton commented.
Fellow comedian Sarah Silverman also exclaimed, “Woo Hoo IG offish!!”
And of course, hubby Jo Koy couldn’t help but express his love for his new gal. “Mahal kita,” he commented.
(I love you.)
Rumors first swirled when the two were spotted getting cozy at a Dodgers game in late August. Snapshots of the supposed couple showed them hugging and kissing at the Dodgers stadium in Los Angeles.
On September 21, Handler then posted about being “in love.” She wrote: “Just sitting here in Mallorca thinking about how grateful I am to have so many people that I love in my life, to live the life I do and to be going on tour doing what I love. And that I’m finally in love, with the best kind of guy there is. There is hope for everyone! That kind of stuff.”
The pair have known each other for years, with Koy frequently appearing on Handler’s late night comedy talk show, Chelsea Lately. Back in March 2020, Handler opened up to Health about her changing perspective on love.
“I have to be more open and less judgmental,” she said. “My thing is, like, if I see a belt that I don’t like, you’re out. If I see him wearing the wrong kind of shoes or if he has a weird walk — see you later. I’ve always been judging people by things that are not reasonable to be judging them for. So my goal in finding somebody is just to be more open-minded.”
Koy was previously married to singer Angie King, with whom he shares one son. Handler, on the other hand, has dated around for the past few years, with notable exes being 50 Cent and AndrÃ© Balazs.
