SNOW Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid is looking like more than just friends with Hollywood star Courteney Cox – sparking rumours of wedding bells.

The Londonderry-born musician (37), protectively held hands with Courteney Cox's daughter Coco as they strolled through LA airport on St Valentine's Day.

Despite only going public with their new relationship in November, the closeness of the US actress and her Northern Irish partner has led sources close to Cox to predict she's poised to walk down the aisle before best pal and Friends co-star Jennifer Aniston, who is engaged to Justin Theroux.

Cox, who turns 50 in June, was married to actor David Arquette, the father of her nine-year-old Coco. They separated in 2010 but they didn't divorce until May last year.

Coco's approval of her new romance is said to have convinced the TV icon Johnny is the man for her.

The pair met through mutual friend and musician Ed Sheeran. The Snow Patrol idol moved to Nashville with him and then LA to work together on the singer's record last year.

The former Friends star has been dating Johnny since last September, and was recently rumoured to have moved him into her house.

An insider told US magazine: "Courteney is already talking marriage. They're very serious."

A source also told Grazia magazine: "Johnny went home to Ireland over New Year while Courteney headed to Mexico with Jennifer Aniston.

"The time apart made her realise how serious she is about him and as soon as she got home she asked him to live with her.

"This is the happiest Courteney has been in a long time."


US actress, producer and director Courteney Cox (49) is best known for her role as Monica Geller in NBC comedy Friends and remains close to former co-star Jennifer Aniston. She played Gale Weathers in horror series Scream and Jules Cobb in sitcom Cougar Town, for which she earned her first Golden Globe nomination. She owns a production firm called Coquette Productions with ex David Arquette. In 2010 the couple announced they were separating.
