Congratulations are in order! OMG! Insider correspondent, Christina McLarty and her boyfriend, veteran actor David Arquette, are expecting their first child together. According to TMZ, a number of sources close to the couple have confirmed that the former Entertainment Tonight correspondent is actually already in her fourth month.
One inside source also said, “They were trying to keep this private, but it came as a surprise. They are excited and happy even though this was unexpected.”
While the two are overjoyed about the pregnancy, the arrival of their little bundle of joy won’t insinuate any wedding bells just yet. According to US Weekly, just last month, the couple addressed engagement rumors, putting the status of their relationship into prospective for fans. “We are totally happy and together in love, but we are not engaged,” she said. “It’s just a rumor that got out of control.” The fans will just have to sit back and see what the coming months will bring.
This will be the second child for Arquette. The “Scream” actor also has a 9-year-old daughter with his ex-wife and “Scream” co-star, actress Courteney Cox. The two were married for 10 years before separating. Then, after two years of separation, they filed for divorce in June of 2012. Arquette has been dating McLarty on-and-off for almost two years. But, just because they haven’t reached a full consistency, doesn’t mean things won’t progress even further.
However, on Oct. 1, 2013 Arquette openly declared his love for McLarty on “Watch What Happens Live.” A caller by the name of Nancy phoned in and asked if Arquette was dating anybody. “I’m dating an amazing girl named Christina McLarty. I’m madly in love with her and she’s the love of my life. Absolutely.”
While this may actually be the statement that started the engagement rumor, it does justify speculation. If Arquette’s confession is anything to go by, once again, we’ll just have to wait and see what the next few months will bring.
