David Arquette And 4 Other 'One-Upping' Celeb Exes

Less than a week ago, Courteney Cox announced she was engaged -- and, not to be outdone, her ex David Arquette is now apparently also engaged. People reported Wednesday night that he'd popped the question in Malibu.

Check out these other crazy celeb coincidence:
David Arquette engaged ... six days after ex Courteney Cox
Just hours after Jason Wahler tied the knot on October 12, 2013, Lauren Conrad announced her engagement to boyfriend William Tell. 'William and I are overwhelmed by all of your warm wishes. Thank you so much for sharing in this special moment :-),' wrote Conrad on her blog.
 
Us Weekly recalls back in November 2010 when Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minillo got engaged ... then ten days later, Nick's famous ex, Jessica Simpson, announced Eric Johnson had put a ring on her finger.
 
Oh hey, it's Jess again! In 2012, Jessica Simpson was pregnant ... and so was ex Nick Lachay's second wife,Vanessa Minnillo. Oh, but that's not where the baby bump coincidence ends. Simpson dated Tony Romo from late 2007 to mid-2009, and his wife Candice Crawford was also pregnant at the same time as Simpson and Minnillo. Something tells us those kids won't be playing together.

In August of 2012, Justin Theroux proposed to Jennifer Aniston on the set of her film, 'We're the Millers.' Of course this news was big all on its own -- but it caused an even more massive stir because it came on the heels of Brad Pitt's engagement and reported wedding to Angelina Jolie. That Pitt/Jolie wedding hasn't happened yet, though Jolie's happy to talk about the idea. In May of 2014, she told E!: ""We don't have a date, and we're not hiding anything, but we really don't know. We talk to the kids about it once in a while. … And one of them suggested paintball. And we thought, ‘Well, different,'"

While the timing isn't as wild as some of the other celebs in this gallery, Stacy Keibler announced her pregnancy March 24th. That's less than a month before her ex George Clooney revealed that he was engaged on April 27th. We wonder who was more shocked?
NBC points out that in September 2012, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively got married -- and then in December, his ex-wife Scarlett Johannson went public with her new boyfriend.

TMZ reported Cox and Arquette separated in 2010 and were officially divorced last year. They'd been married since 1999.

Granted, it's not like Arquette just met his now fiance, Christina McLarty. They've been on/off since 2011 and she gave birth to their son in April. Cox and Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid have only been together since around November.

Arquette and Cox are actually on pretty good terms, but this is suspicious timing ... and it got us thinking about celeb exes and their awkward, possibly purposeful timing.

Remember when, in April 2012, after seven years together, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie announced they were engaged? Then, in August, Jennifer Aniston got engaged as well. Neither couple is married yet.

Us Weekly recalls back in November 2010 when Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minillo got engaged ...then ten days later, Nick's famous ex, Jessica Simpson, announced Eric Johnson had put a ring on her finger.

NBC points out that in September 2012, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively got married -- and then in December, his ex-wife Scarlett Johannson went public with her new boyfriend.

Perhaps providing the most drama are, of course, reality stars. In October 2013, former 'The Hills' star Lauren Conrad announced her engagement ... the exact same weekend her ex, Jason Wahler, got married

We can only hope for even more intense timing from here on out. Maybe Brad Pitt and Jen Aniston will get married on the same day at the same time at the same location! Well, we can dream.
