Matthew Perry is 'sober and doing better than he has in a long time' after engagement to Molly Hurwitz

MATTHEW Perry is on the good path as he's "sober and doing better than he has in a long time" now that he's engaged to Molly Hurwitz.

The actor, 51, and the 29-year-old literary manager have been in a relationship since 2018.

According to In Touch, Matthew is "happier than ever," as "between “reestablishing his AA program” and “having Molly in his life,” he's managed to turn things around.

The source added: “She literally gave him something to live for."

While the star has had his ups and downs, and has battled drugs and alcohol, Molly has been in his corner.

The insider revealed: “She quietly stood by him. There was a lot of talk early on that she gave up on him — but she never did.

"She did give him a dose of tough love at times when he struggled, but she stayed by his side and always supported him.”

Molly's parents are also "ecstatic" that the Friends star popped the question – after asking her father for her hand in marriage, The Sun exclusively revealed.

A family source told The Sun: "He did, it was very sweet and traditional, everything a father would have wanted.

"Her mother has met him and spent time with him, and so has Larry, they are both over the moon."

Another insider added: "They are very well-suited and very happy together, we couldn't be more pleased, we're ecstatic."

The source said the rest of the family "hope to meet him soon" and have been congratulating the couple, although they are keeping quiet on where and when Matthew popped the big question.

The insider explained: "I've spoken to him many times on the phone, but in the age of COVID it's hard to meet anybody at the moment."

They added: "They have been dating over two years. As long as she's happy, we're happy."

While the happy pair did briefly split earlier this year, they later rekindled their romance – eventually taking things to the next level.

The Sun exclusively revealed their relationship in December, as Matthew and Molly enjoyed a romantic Christmas together, and it was revealed later they had been dating for two years.

A source previously revealed: “She has a very quirky sense of humor and they hit it off immediately.

"Molly is not interested in fame and she rarely parties, she’s been great for Matthew."

Matthew, who was in a six-year relationship with actress Lizzy Caplan before parting ways in 2012, also has other things that he's been focusing on as he will reunite with his Friends costars in 2021.

Matthew, along with David Schwimmer, Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, Matt LeBlanc, and Lisa Kudrow, will team up for an anticipated special set to be released next March on HBO Max.
