It's official: Courteney Cox is engaged to rocker Johnny McDaid!

As speculation mounted in light of the gorgeous diamond ring the Cougar Town star was wearing on that finger at dinner last night at L.A. hot spot Craig's, they ended up tweeting the news simultaneously, along with a sweet selfie. 

Which is pretty romantic!

Cox wrote, "I'm engaged to him!" and the Snow Patrol rocker posted, "I'm engaged to her!"


The lovebirds recently enjoyed a romantic getaway at Amanyara in Turks and Caicos in honor of the brunette beauty's 50th birthday.

The former Friends star and her now-fiancé caught up on some much needed R&R and spent most of their vacation taking dips in the ocean and working on their tans.


According to an eyewitness, "It was very romantic and a beautiful setting…Courteney looked like there was nowhere else in the world she would rather be and just so happy to be doing what she was doing. Johnny was doting on her, rubbing her leg and passing her a cold towel when she got hot. They seem very happy together and totally in love."

And just last month at the Tribeca Film Festival premiere of Just Before I Go, her directorial debut, Cox drew attention to a ring she was wearing in order to clarify that it was not an engagement ring.

She told E! News, "This is not...the question at hand!..That I've worn forever!" She then joked, "Don't look at my hands! They look horrible!"

The engaged couple was first spotted together at Jennifer Aniston's holiday party in Bel Air, Calif., on Sunday, Nov. 8, after being introduced by none other than Ed Sheeran.

"I wasn't allowed to talk about this, actually, but it's just gone public so... My housemate [McDaid] who I've lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox. They started dating and [are] crazy about each other," he said in an interview with OMG! Insider.

"I ended up spending a lot of time living in her beach house and therefore bumping into all these random people. We spent Thanksgiving eve at Jennifer Aniston's before spending the day at Courteney's."

Clearly, Sheeran's matchmaking skills are on point!
