Congratulations to former Friends star Matthew Perry!

The 51-year-old actor revealed that he recently proposed to his partner of over two years, Molly Hurwitz, and she said, "Yes!"

I decided to get engaged," Perry gushed in a statement. "Luckily, I happened to be dating the greatest woman on the face of the planet at this time.”

While everyone is undoubtedly familiar with Matthew Perry thanks to his character on one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, we're curious about his bride-to-be and all the details about their relationship.

Who is Matthew Perry's fiancé, Molly Hurwitz?

Read on for everything we know about the future Mrs. Perry.

Molly Hurwitz is originally from New York.

Hurwitz, 29, is originally from the Big Apple, and according to one source, she's not into the party scene at all — which is great for Perry, considering his years-long public battle with drugs and alcohol.

“Molly has been seeing Matthew for months, they mix in the same circles and she’s originally from New York where they have spent time together," a source said in December of 2019.

She's funny.

"She has a very quirky sense of humour and they hit it off immediately," the same source added.

"Molly is not interested in fame and she rarely parties, she’s been great for Matthew. They have kept the relationship a secret but things are getting more serious," the source continued. 

Hurwitz is also in the entertainment industry.

However, she isn't an actress. She's a talent manager who works for Zero Gravity Management.

Her Stage32 bio reads, "Molly Hurwitz is a Manager and Producer at Zero Gravity Management, a management and production company with over 500 clients and over 20 productions under their belt. Born, raised, and educated in NYC, Molly began her career in ICM Partners agency mailroom, which, yes, included actually delivering mail."

She's stood by his side through the ups and downs. 

After Perry was spotted looking disheveled while smoking outside of a restaurant in Nov. of 2019, a mystery woman — who has since been identified as Hurwitz — comforted him and helped him safely get home.

Apparently, the paparazzi captured his every move, from him eating and drinking at a booth in the restaurant to his stumble to an Uber. 

"The girl wasn’t mad at him, but she was definitely treating him kindly like she knew he was a mess and wanted to make sure he got home OK. He was smoking; he [didn’t seem] sober,” said the same source.

The good news? “[Matthew] didn't drive. The girl got him a car, I think it was an Uber. Matthew was feeling no pain, [but] he didn’t look good at all, definitely didn’t seem to care about his appearance or anyone seeing him. It was kind of sad.”

Hurwitz and Perry spent Christmas together last year.

Hurwitz has a private Instagram account, but did post about Perry on Christmas 2019, saying, “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 snap was reportedly taken at Perry's penthouse in Los Angeles.

However, Hurwitz wrote a somewhat cryptic message even further back in June 2019 on her Instagram where she shared a photo of the block in New York where Friends took place, and even referenced Perry's character from the show, with the caption, “Could there be any more people taking photos at this random street corner?”

Perry and Hurwitz have been together for more than two years.

On Valentine's Day, Hurwitz paid tribute to her then-beau on her Instagram page with a photo of Perry and a message that not-so-subtly revealed that the couple had been dating for at least a year.

She wrote, “Second year being my valentine, but his first as an Instagram influencer. HVD to my favorite.”

They may have taken a break from their relationship in April.

“It happened very recently. It was very amicable, but they have both decided to go their separate ways,” a source said at the time.

In April, Perry had taken to Instagram with a post that read, "Why is today especially hard?" making his followers think that he may have been going through a hard time.

However, it looks like that drama is a thing of the past, considering his and Molly's recent engagement.

Congrats to the happy couple!
