David Arquette and Christina McLarty are engaged!

The 42-year-old actor proposed to his entertainment reporter girlfriend tonight during a family dinner with their 2-month-old son, Charlie West, and Arquette's daughter, Coco, in Malibu.

They arrived at the ocean-view restaurant—what a setting to pop the question in!—at around 6:10 p.m., seemingly for a casual night out. About 45 minutes after they were seated, Arquette motioned for the fam to follow him outside, where he got down on one knee and, at sunset, offered up an engagement ring with a large blue center stone.

"Coco, did you know?" McLarty was heard asking Coco, who coyly replied, "Maybe" and then giggled, "Engaged! Engaged!"

McLarthy was beaming from ear to ear when they walked back inside.

Incidentally, Arquette's proposal comes just days after Courteney Cox announced her engagement to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. They revealed the news simultaneously on Twitter last week after she was spotted with a big diamond ring on that finger. "I'm engaged to him!" the 50-year-old Cougar Town actress wrote, while her rocker posted, "I'm engaged to her!"
