David Arquette has been with his girlfriend, Christina McLarty, for about three years, on and off. They even had a baby together earlier this year. Now, they’ve decided a wedding is the next big thing they’d like to undertake and they announced their engagement on Wednesday.
Arquette, 42, popped the question to McLarty, 33, at Mastro’s Ocean Club in Malibu, a source tells PEOPLE. “He wanted his family to be with him when he did it,” the source says, adding that “they are going to vacation in Aspen to celebrate.”
Mastro’s has a special connection to the actor: On Friday, to celebrate Fourth of July, Arquette’s L.A. night spot, Bootsy Bellows, will be hosting a pop-up event at Mastro’s, right where the actor proposed.
I know this is a bit cynical (my middle name), but it’s a bit suspect that David proposed less than week after ex-wife Courteney Cox announced her own engagement to Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid. It’s not a competition, bro – let her enjoy her happiness. Of course, it could have been coincidental, but even still – why not wait it out a few more weeks so that it doesn’t look so shady?
Then again, these two have said they’re still good friends (they do have a daughter, Coco, together), so maybe this was all one big happy family plan and they’re celebrating together? Who can say – but here’s hoping everyone’s happy.

Well, he’s not (now THAT would be a story), but his girlfriend Christina McLarty is! I always hoped David Arquette and Courteney Cox would re-fall in love and get back together again for some reason – I’m honestly not quite sure why as I don’t particularly care about either of them – but it’s clear that’s not happening. This is David’s second child (he and Courteney have their daughter, Coco) and his first with McLarty. Happy families!
E! Online confirmed the news, which is really nice for them. David always seemed like a really decent dude, so it’s nice that they’re happy. The pair have been dating for about two years, apparently, which is crazy – time fucking flies! I feel like they just together a few months ago! TMZ says Christina is four months into her pregnancy.
Any bets on how quickly they’ll fast track the wedding?

If you thought Gale Weathers and Deputy Dewey would make it til the end of time, then Courteney Cox and David Arquette‘s split must have hit you pretty hard. I’m afraid this news won’t be any prettier: their divorce has been finalised. :(
The pair have remained pretty good friends since their split and continue to raise their daughter Coco together, so that’s nice. They seem to be one of those rare couples who have mastered the art of being mature f-cking adults and remaining civil to one another even though their romantic relationship has come to an end, so kudos for that.
Courteney Cox and David Arquette are finally divorced … more than 2-and-a-half years after breaking up.
Courteney and David first separated in October 2010 … but waited to file divorce docs until June 2012.
But on Tuesday, an L.A. County Superior Court judge entered a final judgement for the divorce … officially ending the 12-year marriage.
In the divorce docs, both Courteney and David requested joint legal and physical custody of their 8-year-old daughter Coco … so it’s likely they got what they asked for.
The couple had previously told the media they would remain friends after the split — and vowed to work together to raise their daughter.
Well, that was fairly straightforward. Refreshingly so, I’d say. Not refreshing: all that plastic surgery Courteney keeps getting. I’m a
feminazi feminist so I like to embrace all decisions ladies make about their own bodies, but that shit is just tragic.
