Matthew Perry has recently confirmed his engagement to ‘the greatest woman on the face of the planet’
Actor Matthew Perry, best known for playing the hilariously insecure and sarcastic Chandler Bing in iconic sitcom Friends, seems to have gotten over his commitment issues in real life as well when he announced his engagement to literary manager Molly Hurwitz.
The 51-year-old actor shared the good news with People magazine and gushed about his 29-year-old fiancé. "I decided to get engaged. Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time."
According to reports, the couple started dating in 2018. The actor was previously in a long term relationship with Lizzy Caplan until 2012.
Last year, Molly and Perry were spotted outside a restaurant in Los Angeles and fans speculated about their relationship status.
When the news broke, Friends fans were ecstatic for the star, who seemed to have always been in the news for all the wrong reasons.
