The 34-year-old actor`s close friends Sir Elton John and David Furnish announced the happy news on stage at their White Tie and Tiara Ball in London on Thursday (27.06.13), according to JustJared. Matthew - who is best known for playing Will Schuester on `Glee` - recently revealed he can`t wait to marry Renee but admitted they may wait a few years before starting a family.
Asked if he wants to marry the singer/songwriter, he said: "I hope so, then maybe working on kids. Who knows? I`ve always wanted to have children, but when the holidays are here and I`m around kids more, I`m like, do I really want a kid?
"It`s great to be able to enjoy them and then I`m like, okay, bye! Although when I`m 80 years old, I`m going to want kids and grandkids. That would be awesome."
Matthew also revealed he would much rather spend an evening rustling up a romantic meal in the kitchen with Renee than chatting to strangers at showbiz parties.
He said: "In a business sense, it`s important to be seen at some of [the parties] and speak with people you could work with in the future. But I`d much rather be at home with Renee.
"We love to cook, there`s something about preparing a meal where you get to enjoy your creations together."
