"Second year being my valentine, but his first as an Instagram influencer," she wrote on her private Instagram account. "HVD to my favourite."

People revealed that Matthew Perry and Molly Hurtwiz are dating each other since 2018 and are most likely to have a wedding somewhere in 2021.

In the first week of November, Matthew Perry tweeted that "Friends reunion being rescheduled for the beginning of March. Looks like we have a busy year coming up. And that's the way. I like it!"

Even Cox shared similar enthusiasm in February and explained during her Hiking With Kevin that they are going to have the best time as "We really haven't all done that and actually sat there and talked about and reminisced about this incredible experience that we had. ... It's going to be fantastic."

Friends TV series' co-creator Marta Kauffman said in June that "We are hoping to be able to shoot in August if all is well and there is no early second wave and the studio is open."
