Cox and McDaid made their debut as a couple in December when the actress brought the musician as her date to her close friend Jennifer Aniston's holiday party. Interestingly, another musician, singer Ed Sheeran, later explained that he was the one who set them up. (Sheeran also accidentally revealed that the pair were living together in March. Oops!) 

Rumors have been swirling that Cox, 50, and McDaid, 37, were headed down the aisle, although the happy news hadn't been confirmed until now.

Cox was previously married to actor David Arquette, whom she met on the set of Scream in 1996. The two wed in 1999 and had a daughter, Coco, in 2004. Their October 2010 split took many by surprise. However, Cox and Arquette have remained on friendly terms.

Arquette, who welcomed a son with his girlfriend Christina McLarty in April, has even spoken highly of McDaid and noted that they've gone to dinner "a few times."

"He's amazing," Arquette said of McDaid on The Wendy Williams Show in February. "Great guy."

Cox and McDaid recently worked together when his band wrote three songs for the soundtrack of a movie she's directing, Just Before I Go.

Expect many more future collaborations.
