Courteney Cox opens up about having a baby with Derry's Johnny McDaid

The couple got together in 2013 after being introduced by Ed Sheeran.

Former Friends actress Courteney Cox has opened up about having children with boyfriend Johnny McDaid, saying she "would love" to have a baby with the Londonderry musician.

The couple have been together on and off for almost four years - they previously called off their engagement in 2015 before getting back together last year.

Cox (53), who has a 13-year-old daughter Coco with fellow actor David Arquette, has been speaking to about whether she would like more children with the Snow Patrol star.

She said: "I would love to have a baby now. I mean, I could carry someone else's egg. I may be one of the older people doing it, but I would love to, with Johnny that is."

The Scream actress also spoke about the 13 year age difference between her and her partner.

She added: "He's younger than me, and with any other guy that would be the hardest thing in the world, but looks are not that important to him or his family.

"External beauty isn't even on his radar. I used to worry about the age difference, but I don't think it matters. He appreciates beauty, but it's deeper than that. It's deeper for me too, but luckily I find him gorgeous and extremely sexy."

It is not known whether or not Cox and McDaid still plan on getting married following their previous split.

The couple have remained quiet on the subject, however the actress did speak to Bear Grylls about the break up during her appearance on his show Running Wild With Bear Grylls.

She said: "We were engaged for over a year and then we broke up. He's from Ireland and the way he regards love is precious. We have to treat it in a different way.

"It's more special. You coddle it. So, I didn't know how to regard love the way he does. And I definitely made a lot of mistakes that I see, whether it's co-dependency or people-pleasing. I didn't know how to bring it in. It was always external."

The couple got together in 2013 after being introduced by mutual friend Ed Sheeran.
