Courteney Cox 'desperate' to have baby with Irish rocker beau McDaid

Courteney Cox is said to be desperate to have a baby with her new boyfriend.
The former Friends star, 49, has been dating Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid for around five months now.
Courteney, who already has nine-year-old daughter Coco with ex-husband David Arquette, is said to be smitten and determined to have another child with her beau.
"Courteney's told pals she's considering seeing a fertility doctor in LA to find out if she can try for a second baby. For years Courteney said that she didn't want another baby and that Coco was perfect so she couldn't see why she'd put herself through the trauma of having another child," a source told British magazine Closer.
"Now having met Johnny, she feels having a baby together would be an amazing way to put a seal on their relationship. Her friends wonder whether if it's because her 50th birthday is coming up [in June]. They don't want her to put herself at any unnecessary risk but she's reassured them that she'd never make a snap decision about something as important as this."

It is thought David becoming a father again with his girlfriend Christina McLarty also played a part in Courteney wanting to be a mom to a second child. The former couple's divorce was finalised last year and they have remained close pals since then.
"Courteney and David are still really good friends, despite their divorce, and seeing him getting all excited about his imminent new arrival has made her realise just how much she'd love another baby too," the source added. "Johnny is also very supportive - he just wants Courteney to be happy."
The couple have been dating for five months
