The 43-year-old actor who played Jennifer Aniston's character Rachel Green's boyfriend in the hit series, plans to marry the part-time photographer, who is 20 years his junior, reported Daily Mail online.
The couple met in 2007 when Zoe was working as a waitress and served at Schwimmer's table at the Cuckoo Club in London's West End. At the time he was directing the movie Run Fatboy Run in East London.
Now Zoe has left her home in Stoke Newington and moved to the US to live with the actor.
"David is smitten with Zoe and says she is the one. Things have moved very fast. He wanted to see how they got along living together and it has been a big success. He wants to ask Zoe to marry him," said a friend working closely with Schwimmer.
"He has been living with Zoe in Chicago recently working on a stage show called Trust and they will probably make an announcement when they come back to LA," the source added.
Schwimmer, who is notoriously private, has been linked to a handful of glamorous women, including the singer Natalie Imbruglia, singer Gina Lee and Israeli actress Mili Avital.
