Courteney Cox opens up about relationship with much younger Johnny McDaid: ‘He’s my guy, he’s my one’

Courteney Cox isn’t shy to talk about her longtime love Johnny McDaid! The 'Friends' star has been notoriously tight-lipped about her relationship with the Snow Patrol musician, to whom she was previously engaged.

During a Monday night appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the 54-year-old Cox was asked by her pal Kimmel about her "man-friend". "My man friend? That’s good. I don’t know if that would go over very well," she quipped over the title. "He’s my partner. That’s what he calls it, my partner. And I’m from Alabama, so you don’t really say partner unless you’re in the same sex."

"I was in Atlanta not that long ago and I was like, 'Oh, I’m supposed to meet my partner in section F', and they were like, 'Oh, I’m sure she’s going to be there, don’t worry about it'," she said laughing. "Not that it matters, but it’s just a different way to speak."

It’s unclear whether Cox and McDaid still consider themselves engaged after several years of an on-and-off romance. Cox was wearing a ring on that finger, but it’s unknown if it was her initial engagement ring from McDaid. The pair were engaged for a year-and-a-half before calling it quits in 2015, but they seemingly reconciled in early 2016 and have appeared to be together ever since. They have kept their relationship a secret thereafter.



In fact, Cox revealed on the show that they spent their New Year together in England. After a night of a little too much fun, they went with her daughter, Coco, and a friend to a pub 45 minutes down the road. On the way back, they got very lost as it was getting dark outside, she recalled.

"So I did this time. Coco and myself, and Johnny, and her friend Ella — we started walking through these fields. We were kind of far behind people, so we didn't know where we were going. Once we got there, I had a beer. Next thing you know, I am floating. I have the best time." said Cox.

"We found ourselves in this field of rams and those are dangerous animals. We were petrified then we had to run by an electrical fence to get out. It was a nightmare, but it was one of the most fun days," Cox summed up.

Meanwhile, her new Facebook Live docuseries 'Nine Months' is set to premiere in just a couple weeks. And while at Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, the actress cut a cool figure in a black leather skirt as she headed into the late-night talk show in Hollywood, reported Daily Mail. The series explores a range of pregnancy experiences, from joyous to tragic featuring interviews with a number of women drawn from diverse racial and ethnic backgrounds.
