Although no definitive wedding date has yet been set, Courteney Cox is “having fun” planning her nuptials with fiancé Johnny McDaid.

The 51-year-old former Friends star is currently engaged to Snow Patrol musician Johnny McDaid.

She shares 11-year-old daughter Coco with her ex-husband David Arquette, and Courteney is betting her preteen will belt out a host of tunes at the upcoming nuptial ceremony.

“Oh, for sure,” she told People magazine of whether Coco will perform at the wedding. “It’s going to be a whole musical.”

Coco also performed at her father David’s wedding to Christina McLarty, which took place earlier this year on April 12.

But Courteney has no idea what her daughter is planning to sing at her nuptials with Johnny.

“I could request something, but I actually wouldn’t have a choice. That kid loves to sing. Everything from Barbra Streisand to Cee Lo,” she noted. “She’s actually really, really talented. Coco sang a song for the film I directed called Just Before I Go. And she’s amazing.”

Courteney can definitely visualise Coco stepping into her parents’ footsteps by becoming a professional entertainer.

Coco will have to wait a few years until she can make a career out of her love for performing though.

“I think that’s probably what she’ll do. She’ll probably do musical theatre because she loves to be very dramatic,” Courteney shared. “She can do it for school now. But not professionally until she’s older!”

Courteney and Johnny don’t have a wedding date set yet.

However, they’re enjoying putting all the details together.

“We don’t have any plans at the moment. We don’t have any firm decisions yet. But it’s fun thinking about it and figuring out what to do and when to do it,” Courteney said. “I’m having fun with that.”
