With a diamond that size, it's no wonder she's smiling.
Actress Courteney Cox (50) announced her engagement to Down native Johnny McDaid on Friday after months of speculation that a trip up the aisle was next on their agenda.
The former Friends star flashed her ring after a celebratory dinner to mark the milestone with her other half, who plays both piano and guitar for Snow Patrol.
The pair announced the exciting news on Twitter at the same time from both of their accounts.
"I'm engaged to him!" the actress gushed.
"I'm engaged to her!" Johnny wrote.
Courteney was recently said to be hoping for a quickie wedding, possibly as soon as this month.
"She's throwing a big party at home in LA and it looks like it'll be more than a birthday bash," an insider told British magazine Heat in May. "She's asked guests to wear white and dress smart - and has let slip that there's going to be a BIG surprise."
Courteney and Johnny, 37, were first linked last year. The actress has nine-year-old daughter, Coco, with her ex-husband David Arquette, who recently welcomed a son, Charlie West, with partner Chistina McLarty.
After being introduced by mutual friend Ed Sheeran, the pair are clearly more in love than ever.
“David and Johnny get along great. Johnny… is humble, he's present, he's super talented," an insider said of the couple.
