Christina McLarty has been described as David Arquette's "on-again, off-again" girlfriend, and said in late October that the two of them were not engaged, despite rumors to the contrary. But now, the couple have announced that they are expecting a baby, and although it was a surprise, they are excited and happy.
"We are totally happy and together in love, but we are not engaged," McLarty said. "It's just a rumor that got out of control."
Arquette has said that McLarty is the love of his life, which may sting a little for actress Courtney Cox; she married the actor in 1999 and had daughter Coco with him before they split in 2010. Their divorce was just finalized this year. The couple have vowed to remain friends, however, and raise their daughter together.
“He's my best friend in the world. I love him,” Cox told Ellen DeGeneres in January. “I appreciate David more now than I ever did. I mean... it's hard. I don't recommend divorce in general, but he is my best friend and we've both grown and changed, and I think we both appreciate each other more. I hope he does. I do.”
Arquette is currently shooting a film in Vancouver and has had no comment on the pregnancy, but McLarty is said to be in her fourth month.
