Johnny McDaid


The video for Kodaline's newest single Love Will Set You Free has finally dropped, and the Swords lads have come a long way.

Not only was the song itself co-written by Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, but the video was the mastermind of his partner, actress Courteney Cox.

"When Johnny first played me Love Will Set You Free, I was blown away. The song is incredibly beautiful," Courteney tells PEOPLE magazine. "After hanging out with the guys and getting to know their personalities, I knew I wanted to direct this video and really showcase who they are as individuals and as musicians." 

The video was shot on the grounds of Courtney's Malibu home, and also features a few cameos from Johnny.

Stealing the show though, is Court's 11-year-old daughter Coco, who welcomes the lads to the house dressed in a fetching cow print onesie:

And just LOOK at the inside of Courteney's gaff:

Irish fans might spot some other familiar faces, among them former Two Tube presenter Diana Bunici, who is dating Kodaline's frontman Steve Garrigan.

"Basically it was just us hangin' out," Steve tells the magazine. "We flew over some of our friends from Dublin and had a few beers and hung out and were messin' about." 

And anyone who attended Ed Sheeran's recent Croke Park gig will recognise Etaoin Corr, who was proposed to on stage by her long-term boyfriend, Kodaline bassist Jason Boland.

Kodaline first sparked rumours of a collaboration with Courteney and Johnny earlier this year when they were pictured hanging out with the couple in LA. 

"When we first went up [to the house], we were quite nervous because she's Courteney Cox: We're Friends fans. We have the box sets at home, you know?" Steve admits.

"But Courteney's an incredible person. You go there, and she just makes everybody feel at home. There's no airs or graces about her. She's just a nice person." 

The video was shot back in May, and though it's currently available to view exclusively on PEOPLE's website, it should get its official launch later this week.



Courteney Cox is set to marry Snow Patrol musician Johnny McDaid in Co. Mayo any day now, and it looks like her family have been doing their best to get to grips with Irish culture before the big day.

The Friends actress brought Johnny home to visit her family in Alabama recently, and they all spent a very entertaining evening trying to rip off his Northern Irish accent.

As accents go, it's definitely not the easiest one to mimic, but the Coxes gave it a good bash all the same. Luckily for us, Courteney filmed the whole thing and it was played out during her appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night.

Our verdict? Courteney's mam needs to up her game, but 10-year-old Coco totally has the Northern Irish twang down.




Fan of Friends? You might want to book a trip to Mayo very soon!

Courteney Cox and her fiancé, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid, are set to marry in the luxurious Ashford Castle hotel in Cong, Co Mayo – and the wedding could be sooner than you think.

Labourers who were involved in renovation work at the hotel in mid-February were told that all work needed to be finished within eight weeks so that it would not clash with Courteney and Johnny's wedding, SHEmazing! has learnt.

With that in mind, it seems Courteney's celebrations could be taking place as soon as next weekend.

A representative for Ashford Castle says the hotel "cannot confirm or deny" the reports.

The Friends star is said to have been very taken with the five star hotel when she and Johnny visited it as a possible wedding venue last August. "Johnny took Courteney to Ireland to meet his family and they fell in love with Ashford Castle,” a source told The Sun at the time.

“They want to get married there… and have a big bash in LA on a Malibu beach afterwards.”

The couple, who were introduced by singer Ed Sheeran, got engaged last summer during a birthday party for the actress' daughter Coco, held at Jennifer Aniston's house.

So could Courteney, Jennifer and co. be heading to Mayo in the next few days? Watch this space!



Friends star Courteney Cox seems to be going through a difficult time in her life right now.

The actress was spotted looking visibly distressed and upset while talking to a pal in Malibu, California earlier this week. 

The Cougar Town lead burst into tears and held her face in her hands as her friend sat next to her looking downcast.

It's not clear whether the pair were arguing, or if Courteney had received some bad news, but either way the actress appeared drastically different from her usual cheerful self.

Dressed casually and with very little make-up, Courteney looked stunned as she spoke to her friend. 

Later it seemed as if the meeting may have turned into a heated discussion, as she began to become more animated and upset:

The actress got engaged to Snow Patrol frontman Johnny McDaid last June and announced the news on Twitter by sharing a sweet photo of the pair with the caption, "I got engaged to him!"

Although she has yet to reveal the wedding date, Courteney admits she has begun planning – although her ten-year-old daughter Coco is the most excited about it. "Coco spends more time thinking about the wedding than I do," she told Us Weekly recently.

We really hope that whatever Courtney is going through is nothing that can't be solved with the help of a few good friends and family members.



They did their very best to keep their engagement a secret, and now it looks as though Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid may have pulled the wool over our eyes yet again.

It looks like they may have already tied the knot in secret!

The couple set the rumour mill into overdrive by sharing a photo of their seriously impressive Halloween costumes to Twitter.

While the couple clearly went to a hell of a lot of effort with their scary his and hers looks, all eyes were on one tiny detail of Johnny’s outfit – the shiny band on his wedding ring finger.

With the glare of the media spotlight shining down on the pair since they first stepped out as a couple, it makes sense that they may have decided to opt for a secret ceremony.

If the rumours are true, and they are in fact already husband and wife, we hope they will at least share a sneak peek of their special day.

It looks like Courteney Cox’s daughter Coco is having a blast on her holidays here!

The 10-year-old jetted into Co Derry earlier this week with her famous mum and her fiancé, Irish rocker Johnny McDaid.

The trio made the most out of their time in the city as they enjoyed a shopping trip to jewellers D Cooley during their visit.

While the famous couple posed for photos with staff members, Coco was sure to get in on the action too by photobombing her mum’s snap!

Super cute!

Courteney and the Snow Patrol star are rumoured to be searching for wedding venues during their visit to Ireland, but they may wed in Courteney’s native Alabama to be close to her elderly mum.

Ireland for a honeymoon perhaps – Kim and Kanye style!




Courteney Cox paid a visit to our little island as she and her fiancé Johnny McDaid have reportedly been looking for a wedding venue!

The star jetted in to Derry Airport and posed for photos with airport staff before going to visit her soon-to-be in laws.

We would LOVE for them to get married here, and it makes sense seen as Johnny is Irish. We REALLY hope all the cast of Friends are invited, not that we’d get to meet any of them, but we could have some fun trying!



Courteney Cox surprised fans this morning by tweeting a photo of herself and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid with the caption: “I’m engaged to him!”

Johnny also posted the same picture saying: “I’m engaged to her!”


Awh! Courteney was spotted out with a huge diamond last night and speculation was rising about whether or not they were actually engaged – we’re delighted it’s true!


The pair were on holiday in Amanyara in Turks and Caicos to celebrate Monica’s – sorry – COURTENEY’S 50th birthday. An eye witness saw the pair out together:

“It was very romantic and a beautiful setting. Courteney looked like there was nowhere else in the world she would rather be and just so happy to be doing what she was doing. Johnny was doting on her, rubbing her leg and passing her a cold towel when she got hot. They seem very happy together and totally in love.”

Courteney and Johnny were first spotted out together at Jennifer Aniston’s party in Bel Air, California, and Ed Sheeran revealed that it was actually him that introduced them!

“I wasn’t allowed to talk about this, actually, but it’s just gone public so… My housemate [McDaid] who I’ve lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox. They started dating and [are] crazy about each other.

“I ended up spending a lot of time living in her beach house and therefore bumping into all these random people. We spent Thanksgiving eve at Jennifer Aniston’s before spending the day at Courteney’s.”

Wow, Ed is really hanging out with the right kind of people!



A close friend to Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid has revealed he will marry Courteney Cox on her 50th birthday next month.

The wedding will take place on 15th June in Courteney’s Los Angeles home and is expected to be an intimate affair.

Courteney has been selling the event as her birthday party, but has told guests to wear white, dress smart and expect a big surprise.

The pair, who got together last year, sparked marriage rumours in February when Courteney was spotted wearing what appeared to be an engagement ring.

A selection of family members and close friends, including Jennifer Aniston and musician Ed Sheeran who set the couple up, are expected to be in attendance.

McDaid’s friend says: “Johnny and Courteney are madly in love and they want it to be special. They can’t think of a better time to become a family than on her birthday.”

Here’s hoping these aren’t just rumours!




Did Courteney Cox get engaged?

Well, the massive sparkler on her ring finger tells us yes.

The former Friends actress has been dating Snowpatrol musician, Johnny McDaid since the end of last year and reports say the couple are living together already.

Now it would seem they have taken their relationship a step further and gotten engaged!

Johnny has become a permanent fixture in Courteney’s life since her split from actor David Arquette in 2010.

He is often seen with her daughter Coco also.

If the rumours are true and the ring is an engagement ring – you heard it from Ed Sheeran first. 




Cougar Town star Courteney Cox has only been dating Snow Patrol‘s Johnny McDaid for about two months, but the couple are apparently already talking about getting hitched.

According to reports, Courteney, who recently opened up about her divorce from David Arquette, “is already talking marriage” and “gushes about Johnny all the time” – we’d gush if we were going out with him too.

The pair are said to be very serious about each other and have been spotted several times looking very loved up.

The handsome couple were set up by no other than Ed Sheeran, who is currently living with McDaid in LA while they work on Ed’s album. T

The Lego House singer said: “They started dating and are crazy about each other and I ended up spending a lot of time living in her beach house and therefore bumping into all these random people. We spent Thanksgiving eve at Jennifer Aniston’s and Thanksgiving day at Courteney’s.”

Wonder if the wedding will take place in McDaid’s hometown of Derry – we’ll keep an eye on the postbox, just in case.
