Is David Arquette engaged to his girlfriend? Yes, yes.
Not to be outdone by Courteney Cox, actor David Arquette asked his girlfriend Christina McLarty to be his wife. The whole thing went down in Malibu on July 2nd and his reps have confirmed the big news.
Of course, his happy news came a few days after his ex-wife Courteney Cox announced her engagement to Johnny McDaid, Snow Patrol musician, on June 26. Because life is a race, y’all. When you are divorced or you break up, it’s all about proving that you are just as adjusted and happy as the other person.
Yes, I fully realize that it could just be coincidence. And the fact that if you squint his new fiance actually looks like Cox is also just a coincidence. Or it just means he has a type. (but don’t we all?) Seriously though, I’m not sure why this is presented as a competition. If it were really a competition, would’t CC have had a baby first? Or immediately after?
Arquette, star from Scream, popped the question during a family event according to a source. They were enjoying a dinner with two month old son Charlie West and Arquette’s 10-year-old daughter Coco at Mastro’s steakhouse.
According to an insider, Arquette had “planned it for a while” and also “known he wanted to marry Christina for a long time.”
Another source states, “David was just waiting for the right time. He and Courteney both talked about taking the next step in their relationships… They both want what is best for each other.”
