Step aside, Courteney! David Arquette is also engaged!

Hot off the heels of his ex's big announcement (Courteney Cox tweeted out her happy engagement news last week), it looks like David did not want to be outdone as word of his proposal broke Wednesday. 


E! News is reporting that the 42-year-old actor proposed to Christina McLarty, an entertainment reporter, during a family dinner with their son, Charlie West, and David's daughter, Coco.

"Coco, did you know?" McLarty was heard asking Coco, who replied, "Maybe" and then giggled, "Engaged! Engaged!"

The big surprise took place at an ocean-view restaurant — mad props for location, Mr. Arquette — when David suggested the family follow him outside where he got down on one knee.

Christina and David had Charlie together in April after revealing the pregnancy in November. After the birth a representative for David said, "Mom, dad and baby are doing well. They appreciate all of your well wishes and thank you for respecting their privacy at this time."

Congrats on the engagement, you two! All the best!
