Courteney Cox has a new man in her life, and THE GOSSIP TABLE can reveal its Johnny McDaid.
The Cougar Town star, 49, brought the 37-year-old singer-songwriter from Northern Ireland to BFF Jennifer Aniston’s holiday party in Bel-Air on Sunday. “They arrived around 7 p.m. and left together about three hours later,” an eyewitness tells us. “She drove and he sat in the passenger seat.” Another onlooker notes, “Courteney definitely looked like she was on a date! They were holding hands during the party.”
And it turns out that Johnny is very good friends with fellow musician Ed Sheeran, who celebrated this past Thanksgiving with the former Friends stars. That explains that connection!
Johnny has been very vocal about supporting Courteney’s career on his Twitter account. On Nov. 19, Ed asked his fans to vote for Courteney for a People’s Choice Award for Favorite Cable TV Actress — and Johnny retweeted. A few weeks later, One Direction heart-throb, Harry Styles, did the same. Johnny retweeted yet again.
Courteney’s new relationship comes six months after she finalized her divorce from actor David Arquette, her husband of 13 years. The pair share 9-year-old daughter Coco.
