David Arquette popped the question to his girlfriend of three years Christina McLarty. Arquette proposed to McLarty at Mastro’s Ocean Club in Malibu, California.
“I proposed to her on the beach in front of a bunch of people and she got really embarrassed,” Arquette told E! News. However, that was not the whole story. McLarty said that there was another couple at the beach doing their engagement photos and she was making fun of them.
“Like, ‘how embarrassing, all these people watching,’” she said. And then out of nowhere, Arquette proposes to her. The engagement ring consisted of a giant black diamond surrounded by two rounds of smaller white diamonds.

Arquette continued, “I take her outside with our new baby, Charlie, and my daughter, Coco, and then I ask her and she’s like ‘No, what are you doing?! There’s so many people watching!’”
McLarty said that she was so uncomfortable the entire time. Arquette, 42, and McLarty, 33, have been dating on and off since 2011. Last April, McLarty gave birth to their baby boy.
Before McLarty met Arquette she had a relationship with creator of the infamous ‘Girls Gone Wild’ video series, Joe Francis. She was with Francis for four years, and married him. The marriage ended after a few months.
Arquette and McLarty are said to be going to Aspen, Colorado to celebrate their engagement.
The news of Arquette and McLarty’s engagement came just a week after Arquette’s ex-wife Courteney Cox announced her engagement to Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol. Cox and Arquette’s divorce became official just last year but they remain friends. Cox shares a daughter, Coco, with Arquette.

A source said that Arquette was just waiting for the right time to ask McLarty to marry him. “He and Courteney both talked about taking the next step in their relationships… They both want what’s best for each other,” the source said.
