Courteney Cox set the rumour mill into overdrive yesterday as she was spotted wearing a huge diamond ring on her wedding finger, only to confirm hours later that she is in fact engaged to Snow Patrol rocker, Johnny McDaid. 

For years we've secretly hoped that she and her Friends on-screen hubby Matthew Perry, AKA Chandler Bing, would come to their senses and get together (if only...), but we're still happy to hear that the Cougar Town actress is settling down once again with her musician partner, who she started dating last year. 

The announcement was pretty sweet too. The 50-year-old actress took to her Twitter account to post a selfie of the pair with the caption 'I'm engaged to him!', with the 37-year-old Snow Patrol rocker tweeting at the same time, 'I'm engaged to her!'. If that's not adorable, we don't know what is...

The smitten couple were first spotted together at Jennifer Aniston's (yep, they're best friends in real-life too) house party back in November after being introduced by none-other than Ed Sheeran. Apparently Ed and Johnny lived together at one point and he consequently arranged the meet-up between his house-mate and the star, and the rest is history. 

Well, if Ed ever get's tired of songwriting, at least he's got match-making to fall back on...
