Courteney Cox has become engaged to boyfriend Johnny McDaid and has confirmed the news via Twitter. The couple, who have been dating for around eight months, jetted to Amanyara in Turks and Caicos on the 14th June to celebrate the actress' 50th birthday and seem to have gotten engaged as well.

Sharing a cute beach selfie, Cox wrote "I'm engaged to him!" whilst the Snow Patrol musician posted the same photo with the caption "I'm engaged to her!"

The pair began dating last year after they were introduced by the British singer, Ed Sheeran. Although they haven't been dating that long, they're noticeably close and clearly in love.

A source speaking to E! spotted the couple canoodling on a secluded beach and said "It was very romantic and a beautiful setting...Courteney looked like there was nowhere else in the world she would rather be and just so happy to be doing what she was doing. Johnny was doting on her, rubbing her leg and passing her a cold towel when she got hot. They seem very happy together and totally in love."

It is not known when or where the couple are planning to tie the knot but at least Cox may be looking to marry sooner than later to provide a little more stability for her 10 year-old daughter, Coco, who she shared with ex-husband David Arquette.

Indeed, this will be the former Friends star's second marriage, following her first marriage to the actor in 1999. Divorce papers were filed in June 2012 following almost two years of separation, but it took until May 2013 for the divorce to become final.
