Matthew Perry, 51, is ENGAGED

Are you as shocked as me???

Friends icon Matthew Perry is engaged to girlfriend Molly Hurwitz.

The sitcom star, 51, gushed about his new fiancée, 29, to People Magazine, calling her the ‘greatest woman on the face of the planet.’

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

Hurwitz, who is a literary manager, confirmed that the pair were officially a couple back on Valentine’s Day.  But who knew it was moving this fast?

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