The couple were spotted driving into Aniston’s Bel-Air mansion for a Thanksgiving bash on Sunday.

The 49-year-old actress was pictured at the wheel of her car alongside the musician.

McDaid, who comes from Derry in Northern Ireland, is living in Los Angeles while he collaborates on singer Ed Sheeran's album.

Cox was introduced to the younger 37-year-old through mutual friends.

An onlooker told Life & Style that the actress and the rocker looked like they were on a date, "Courtney definitely looked like she was on a date. They were holding hands during the party."

"They arrived around 7pm and left together about three hours later. She drove and he sat in the passenger seat,’’ the source added.

The actress was last linked to her Cougar Town co-star Brian Van Holt and she was married to actor David Arquette for 11 years until their separation in 2010.

Their divorce was finalised earlier this year and the couple have a nine year-old daughter Coco.

McDaid is a successful writer and producer working with artists such as Ed Sheeran, Harry Styles and Example.

The rock musician has a tattoo of a Gaelic quote on his upper left arm which is a tribute to his father meaning, ‘‘When I need to get home, you're my guiding light.’’
