Matthew Perry is finally engaged!
The Friends alum popped the question to his long-time girlfriend Molly Hurwitz and she said yes!
The 51-year-old actor told People that he decided to get engaged and luckily for him, he “happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time”.
Matthew was first seen with the manager in December 2019 in a restaurant located in West Hollywood. They also spent the holidays together after that.
The 29-year-old posted a photo of herself together with her future husband on her private Instagram account as reported by Daily Mail. She captioned the picture, “According to my parents’ custody agreement, my mother was not allowed to have a Christmas tree. Fortunately, there’s no such agreement for a daughter’s boyfriend, so Hurwitz gets a treeeeeeee!!!”
The couple is now happily engaged after months of dating but they also encountered some bumps throughout their relationship. Us Weekly reported they split for a short time this year, specifically in May. After their breakup, Matthew joined Raya, an exclusive dating app. However, they were able to talk and patch things up between them. At present, he’s with the “greatest woman of all time” who will soon be his wife.
Just in case, this will be the actor’s first marriage ever. He once dated Lizzy Caplan who starred in Masters of Sex. They were together for six years before they finally called it quits in 2012.
Matthew’s engagement is just another big thing that happened to the actor this year despite the pandemic. A Friends reunion was scheduled earlier this year by HBO Max but due to the coronavirus pandemic, this much anticipated event was postponed. Instead, the cast will start filming next year.
The actor recently joined his Friends co-stars including Lisa Kudrow, Courteney Cox, and Jennifer Aniston on Instagram. He shared the latest update regarding the famous show’s reunion special on Twitter.
He wrote, “Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that’s the way I like it!”
Matthew sure has many reasons to celebrate with his latest engagement to Hurwitz and the upcoming Friends reunion.
