By Cate McCurry

Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid and his ex-fiance Courteney Cox of Friends fame have been spotted shopping together in the US, sparking rumours the pair have rekindled their romance.

The pair were seen together for the first time since their December split on Easter Sunday in Malibu, California.

It comes a week after the Derry man denied rumours that he was dating following his break-up with the Hollywood star.

The duo, who were accompanied by Cox's daughter Coco, were said to have looked happy and content. The pair and Coco spent the afternoon together shopping at Sephora in Malibu.

McDaid (39) and the 51-year-old actress (right) were engaged in June 2014.

However, they called the relationship off four months ago after reports of differences over where to live and how they handled life in the spotlight, which is said to have put their relationship under strain because of their different approaches to fame.

Celebrity website TMZ claimed he wanted to return to live in the UK, with Cox more content to remain in America. There were also rumours the Derry man was uncomfortable in the limelight.

The separation was said to be amicable with sources revealing the two would often exchange friendly text messages.

Following the split it was reported that McDaid was dating former MTV presenter Meghann Scully, however this was denied.

It was claimed that McDaid met the Galway woman and former model at a party in Los Angeles recently.

A source said: "Johnny is very laidback and often found the courtship with Courteney very smothering. Now that he's single again, he just wants to have fun and enjoy himself.

"He feels (he and Meghann) have a lot in common and wants to get to know her better."

Despite splitting over the winter, the American actress and rocker appeared to be on good terms on Sunday.

Courteney looked pretty in a pink blouse with flowing black skirt, matching strappy heels while wearing rosy-coloured shades, large gold hoop earrings and a few bangle bracelets.

The Grammy nominee opted for a monochrome wardrobe in all black trousers, tee and button-down shirt.

Although still in her early teens, Coco wore grey platform strappy heels which she paired with an A-line dress.
