Courteney Cox really does inhabit Cougar Town: The former Friend, 49, is reportedly set to marry Snow Patrol guitarist Johnny McDaid, who's 12 years her junior.
Though the two have been dating for less than a year, things have been going so well that they're discussing getting engaged, insiders say. “Johnny loves her daughter Coco, and he wants to marry Courteney. They have discussed getting engaged and everyone thinks it is going to happen," a source tells Page Six.
Coco is Cox's 10-year-old daughter with her first husband David Arquette. They were married for 14 years, divorcing in 2013 after a long and rocky separation. Cox and McDaid met through Cox's close friend Jennifer Aniston, who apparently approves of the relationship. "All of Courteney’s friends love Johnny, which is great because Jen wasn’t so fond of David Arquette," the source says.
Ha! Poor, poor David Arquette. I'm glad Jennifer Aniston isn't best friends with my boyfriend. I feel certain I wouldn't pass muster. I can't even play guitar.
