Add tooth fairy to David Arquette‘s resumé.

After his daughter Coco, 7, excitedly cheered him on during his Dancing with the Stars debut Monday, the doting dad helped set up a special Tuesday morning for her.

“After she left the show, she lost a tooth,” Arquette, 40, told PEOPLE on Tuesday. “I had her that night, so the ‘tooth fairy’ came and left her some little things.”

Arquette — who says his little one was “jumping and screaming and had the biggest smile on her face,” after watching her dad win over judges with his Viennese waltz — surprised her later with “a little money, but also a bracelet” when he played “fairy.”

The Scream star’s Dancing partner Kym Johnson is also enamored with Arquette’s daughter.

“I got to meet Coco,” she says of Arquette’s only child with amicable estranged wife Courteney Cox. “She’s been giving us some advice. She’s been great. She’s really sweet.”

His aging is really starting to show now

David looks great.

Maybe it’s because he’s very fit now that he’s on DWTS. Ever give that a thought. I didn’t think so you moron.

He sure charmed me on Dancing With the Stars when I saw him, Coco was adorable too so excited! He has my vote and I’m glad Courteney is supporting him too. It’s nice to see them being civil and supportive instead of constantly taking shots at each other and having a dirty custody battle. I love the Arquettes!

Amanda on

I love that Courteney, Coco, and his sister Patricia were there to cheer him on! He’s so affable and enthusiastic, I hope he goes far!

Wow Traci, back it up a little there killer…

Gaby on

Traci, so you are implying is that he’s aging because he’s fit and on DWTS? Well i know! maybe if he got fat, sloppy and unfit he would look so much younger!

Jillian on

Gaby, Tracy said he is NOT aging……

Hea on

Traci – Yes, and everyone on this board live in the US, watching the same shows as eeeeveryone else. Don’t be such a bitch.

Fact is that David is aging. We all are, every second of every day. In my eyes, he looks older than his true age and that may very well be because he’s lost weight recently.

Romy on

the alcohol and drug abuse seems to have caught up with his face. I hope he’s truly sober now, he has still had erratic behavior. They seem to be great parents to Coco.

Eduarda on
