The actor announced the exciting news on his Twitter, Jan. 6 with a hilarious tweet and we couldn’t be happier for him!

Stephen wrote on Twitter: “Oh. It looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag.” Which he followed up with: “Your adorable tweets are bringing me close to sobbing. Off for a walk and a blast of Jorge Bolet (thanks to
@JRhodesPianist’s ace present).”
Stephen’s camp released this statement: “Stephen Fry is very happy and proud to say that he has set the wheels in motion for a wedding sometime in the future but no date has been set due to a busy work schedule.”
The actor, who has starred in films like The Hobbit and Alice in Wonderland, has been very candid about his long battle with depression. He wrote in his autobiography, More Fool Me, that he took cocaine for years and that he spent “hundreds, of thousands of pounds, and as many hours, sniffing, snorting and tooting away time” on the drug.
He also admitted to doing the drug at Buckingham Palace and the House of Commons.
“Since Stephen met Elliott it is like he has a new lust for life,” reports UK’s The Sun.
HollywoodLifers, we are so happy for Stephen and Elliott!
