London - David Arquette has got engaged.

The 42-year-old actor proposed to girlfriend Christina McLarty as they enjoyed dinner at Mastro's steakhouse in Malibu, California with their son Charlie, two months, and his 10-year-old daughter Coco - who he has with ex-wife Courteney Cox - on Wednesday.

According to E! News, the group arrived at the ocean-view restaurant shortly after 6pm and around 45 minutes later, David asked his family to follow him outside, where he got down on one knee and popped the question with a blue-stoned ring.

Christina was heard asking: "Coco, did you know?"

The youngster replied "maybe", before bursting into giggles and shouting "engaged!".

The 33-year-old entertainment reporter was described as "beaming from ear to ear" when they walked back into the restaurant.

The happy news comes just days after David's ex-wife Courteney announced her own engagement to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid and the former couple - who split in 2010 after almost 11 years of marriage - had reportedly had discussions about marriage to their new partners.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: "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's best for each other." - BANG Showbiz
