Oh. My. God. Chandler Bing is officially on Instagram!

Former Friends star Matthew Perry has finally joined Instagram, making him the last Friends cast member to join the insanely popular social media platform.

The 50-year-old actor quickly amassed followers after he created an account on Thursday, February 6, but he has yet to share a post. He immediately followed his former costars: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, and David Schwimmer. Perry also followed Hank Azaria (who guest-starred as Phoebe’s on-off again boyfriend David), Reese Witherspoon, Kate Hudson, and Robert Downey Jr.

The actor also followed Molly Hurwitz. In January, it was reported that Perry was in a relationship with the talent manager.

Kudrow celebrated Perry’s arrival to Instagram by sharing a photo of the pair. “Finally!!! Yay!! Can’t believe my eyes MY EYES,” she, quoting her Friends character. “Welcome to Instagram @mattyperry4 #friendsforlife.”

So far, Perry’s Instagram account has amassed 297,000 followers. At this time of reporting, the former Friends star has not posted anything, but he does have a funny bio, reading, “What is this, my Instagram account?” This may be a nod to his Friends character Chandler Bing.

On Tuesday, February 4, Perry hinted that some “big news [was] coming” on his Twitter account, and this may have been his way at hinting at joining Instagram. His cryptic tweet caused Friends fans to freak out and speculated he was talking about a Friends revival.

Recently, Aniston, Cox, Schwimmer, LeBlanc and Kudrow have all been posting nostalgic photos of their time on Friends, and many fans hope Perry will do the same!
