Courteney Cox of Friends and Cougar Town fame is engaged to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. The couple shared their exciting announcement via Twitter on Thursday evening.

The two were first spotted together at Cox's BFF Jennifer Aniston's holiday party back in December. Since then they've been seen together a number of times including on the red carpet as they celebrated Courteney Cox's directing debut for Just Before I Go at the Tribeca Film Festival in April.

The couple shared identical photos along with their almost identical tweets to announce their good news.

There is high speculation that Cox and McDaid will get married some time in July. Do you suppose Jennifer Aniston will serve as maid of honor for her best friend? If Jen and Justin Theroux would get off the stick and actually go through with their supposed wedding plans, Aniston could theoretically be a matron instead of a maid by the time Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid take their walk down the aisle. If they get married next month, however, it's pretty unlikely that Jen will beat her to the altar.

Courteney Cox has planned a 50th birthday bash for herself to be held at her home in L.A. Sources close to the actress say the 'birthday bash' may be staged and a wedding may be taking place instead.

This will be the second marriage for Courteney Cox. She was previously married to actor David Arquette from 1999 to 2013. Their divorce was final in May of 2013, although they were separated for a lengthy period prior to filing for divorce. They have one daughter, Coco.

Congrats to Courteney on her engagement to the Snow Patrol rocker. The paparazzi is now anxiously awaiting her 50th birthday in hopes of catching photos of anything that resembles a wedding instead of a birthday bash.
