Courteney Cox is engaged to Johnny McDaid.

The 'Friends' actress, 50, and the Snow Patrol rocker are set to walk down the aisle in the near future after he recently got down on one knee and popped the question.

The couple took to Twitter on Thursday night (26.06.14) to share the happy news with their fans by each posing ''I'm engaged to him!'' and ''I'm engaged to her!''

The loved-up duo, who have only been dating for six months, were first spotted together in December when they attended Courteney's close friend Jennifer Aniston's holiday party in Los Angeles.

Speculation that things were moving very fast began to swirl earlier this year when the couple's mutual friend Ed Sheeran - who introduce them to one another - let slip that they had moved in together.

Johnny, 37, and his band collaborated with Courteney on her directorial debut, 'Just Before I Go', and he opened up about the brunette beauty for the first time at the film's premiere a few months ago.

He gushed: ''Courteney is the most completely confident person I've ever met - at everything. She gets music. She gets art. She gets the way a scene gets constructed, the way dialogue works.

''And she puts it all together in her mind and then explains it to the world and makes movies that make people laugh and cry, squirm and jump, all those things.''

Meanwhile, Courteney finalised her divorce from her ex-husband David Arquette in May last year, but they remain on good terms and share custody of their 10-year-old daughter Coco.
