David Arquette engaged ... six days after ex Courteney Cox

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:

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.

If Jennifer Aniston had never met and married Brad Pitt, she would be showing up in the "Where Are They Now" segments of entertainment news.

That's why she keeps having all those procedures done to her face. Ppl think they're enhancing their features by letting docs cut them up. In the long run I think it makes them appear to age quicker.

I thought Courtney was engaged to director David Zucker. She would have at least had a fitting new last name.

Is this some kind of competition? Now let's see if either or both of them last longer than a nanosecond.

Too much Botox, Courtney.

Sheez, some of these celebrities are beginning to look like mannequins
...or Joan Rivers. I don't know which is worse. Not attractive.
