Looks like Courteney Cox is ready to move on. After ten years of marriage to David Arquette, they divorced in 2012, and rumors that she was dating her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt fizzled, Cox and Johnny McDaid from the British alternative rock band Snow Patrol look to be an official hot item.
Several pictures of the Friends star vacationing with the Irish rocker were shot and spread across internet this week after the couple was spotted happily taking a stroll in Venice, Italy. Cox’s 9-year-old daughter, Coco, was also on vacation with the pair. The couple was reportedly hooked up at Jennifer’s Aniston’s holiday party.
Pictures of Coco holding hands with McDaid also made their way around the web. Ed Sheeran, a friend of Cox, is officially taking the credit for setting up the lovebirds. “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 Courtney Cox. They started dating and are crazy about each other.”
Cox remains close friends with her ex-husband, who is Coco’s dad. Arquette is currently expecting a baby boy with his girlfriend Christina McLarty. The 49-year-old was nervous about the baby at first but is now excited. She told Ellen on The Ellen Degeneres Show, “We actually all had dinner the other night — the whole family. It’s a very unique relationship. All of us, literally: me and Christina and David and Coco. It’s great.”
You can see Cox every week on her TBS comedy Cougar Town. The show airs on Tuesday nights 10/9c. The series about a group of neighbors who like to drink a lot of wine is currently in its fourth season.
