‘I decided to get engaged,’ he told the outlet. ‘Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.’

Hurtwitz, who is a literary manager, confirmed that the pair were officially a couple back on Valentine’s Day by sharing a sweet post on social media. 

‘Second year being my valentine, but his first as an Instagram influencer. HVD to my favorite,’ she wrote to Matthew to celebrate the holiday.  

But, his relationship had become public knowledge several months before that when they were spotted out together.

Last November, he and Molly were photographed being affectionate together outside a restaurant in West Hollywood. 

Meanwhile, Matthew and Molly were reported to have split earlier this year, after sources reported they’d gone their separate ways in May. An insider said: ‘It happened very recently. 

‘It was very amicable, but they have both decided to go their separate ways.’ 

It’s not known if the couple did split but since reunited, or if the breakup rumours were false, but friends of the couple insisted he’d finally found the one in Molly.

Another source said: ‘His inner circle have wanted to see him settle down for a long time, especially Courteney Cox, and they hope him and Molly go the distance. 

‘Molly prefers nights in his private cinema watching films and eating home-cooked meals than going out.’  

This will mark the first marriage for Perry, who is famous for playing loveable and sarcastic Chandler Bing in Friends.

However, he has had several highly publicized romances with notabel names.
