Talk About Romance! Courteney Cox Reveals Details of Cutest Proposal EVER

Our hearts melted this morning when we heard the details of Courteney Cox’s engagement to Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid.

The Friends star revealed the details on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, telling the host that the engagement actually took place at BFF Jennifer Aniston’s house. The proposal was helped along by Courteney’s 10-year-old daughter, Coco, who helped to plan the event.


“Johnny first asked Coco,” Courteney explained. “He said, ‘I’d like to marry your mom,’ and gave her a little diamond ring. She said, ‘Great, I’m going to camp tomorrow. Let’s do it right now.’ So they decided they wanted to do it that night because we were leaving for Turks and Caicos, and she was going to camp,” the actress continued.

“We went to Jen’s house for dinner because it was Coco’s birthday and she was godmom. They made a plan to count down from three, and when they'd get to one, he was gonna get down on his knee and say, ‘Will you marry me?’ and she was gonna say, ‘Will you marry him?’

The couple got engaged earlier this summer.

“They planned it out…it was just beautiful. No one knew this was going to happen because it was just a dinner for, essentially, me and Coco.


“Coco got a little bored, as she does, and right after we were at the bar having a drink, she said, ‘Three!’ Johnny’s like, ‘No, not now!’ So she’s like, ‘All right.’

“So, then we go to dinner and there’s a salad course or whatever and she’s like, ‘Oh my God!’ and hits the glass and is like, ‘Three!’

“She kept jumping the gun. Finally, she waited until after dinner. She was literally about to fall asleep,” Courteney recalled.
