British actor-tv personality Stephen Fry confirmed Tuesday that he's engaged to marry boyfriend Elliott Spencer.

Fry, 57, and Spencer, a 27-year-old stand-up comic, have reportedly been dating since last year.

The Sun reported that the couple had given formal notice to wed at a register office in Dereham, Norfolk.

“Oh, it looks as though a certain cat is out of a certain bag,” Fry tweeted. “I'm very very happy of course but had hoped for a private wedding. Fat chance!”

Fry's personal assistant said in a statement that he's “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.”

“Thank you all SO much for your kind congratulations,” Fry responded on Twitter to an outpouring of support. “Deeply touched xxx.”
