'Friends' star Courteney Cox to marry Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid

Courteney Cox says she is engaged to marry Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid. The actress and the musician revealed their engagement Friday with a dual announcement on Twitter. The pair, who have been dating for under a year, posted a selfie with matching tweets saying, “I’m engaged to her” and “I’m engaged to him”.

I wasn’t allowed to talk about this, actually, but it’s just gone public so… My housemate [McDaid] who I’ve lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox. They started dating and [are] crazy about each other.

The pair were first spotted together at Jennifer Aniston’s holiday party in Bel Air, California, on 8 November, and were reportedly introduced by singer and mutual friend Ed Sheeran. This will be the second marriage for the ‘Cougar Town’ and ‘Friends’ star Cox, 50, who divorced actor David Arquette in May 2013 after nearly 14 years of marriage. They have a 10-year-old daughter Coco. Cox and McDaid recently worked together when his band wrote three songs for the soundtrack of a movie she’s directing, Just Before I Go.
