Courteney Cox and boyfriend Johnny McDaid are living together, according to mutual friend Ed Sheeran.
Sheeran, the 23-year-old British singer-songwriter who introduced Cox and McDaid last year, spoke about their romance at a recent VIP preview of Chris Moon’s exhibition A Splendid Isolation in London.
“I’m not sure that it’s public knowledge, so maybe I shouldn’t have said anything – but, yes, they’re already living together … Things are moving fast. He moved in and, judging by the last time I saw them, they couldn’t be happier.”
When asked if the couple would marry soon, Sheeran said “I wouldn’t be surprised, but it’s still early days.”
Cox, 49, and McDaid, 37, made headlines in December when they attended a holiday party hosted by Cox’s friend Jennifer Aniston.
In February they vacationed in Venice with Cox’s nine-year-old daughter Coco.
In March Cox hit the red carpet at the Tribeca Film Festival with McDaid at her side. She was there to premiere Just Before I Go, the movie that marks her directorial debut.
McDaid plays piano and guitar in the alternative rock band Snow Patrol. Originally from Northern Ireland, he and Sheeran lived together in Nashville and Los Angeles last year while working on Sheeran’s sophomore album.

Sheeran is back in London, having told The Mirror that America can’t replicate the English countryside. But it looks like McDaid plans to remain stateside for the time being.
Cox appears to have a good relationship with her ex-husband and daughter Coco’s father David Arquette.

Arquette, who is expecting a baby with girlfriend and Entertainment Tonight correspondent Christina McLarty, has good things to say about McDaid:
“He’s amazing. Great guy,” Arquette told talk show host Wendy Williams in February. “We’ve gone out to dinner a few times. My whole thing is that, he’s a great man and to have someone kind, that you trust around your kid is the most important part.”
