Courteney Cox has been spotted out and about with her Snow Patrol boyfriend Johnny McDaid.
The 49-year-old ‘Cougar Town’ actress spent an evening out in Beverly Hills with the 37-year-old Northern Irish musician.
The couple enjoyed a dinner date and left the restaurant together, Cox shielding her face from the paparazzi.
Meanwhile, award-winning singer Ed Sheeran has taken the credit for setting up the loved-up pair.
He confirmed they were dating last week and claims to have initiated the romance.
“I wasn't allowed to talk about this, actually, but it's just gone public. My housemate, who I’ve lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox,” Ed told OMG.
“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.”
The A-list Hollywood actress unveiled her Irish romance at a party held by pal Jennifer Aniston.
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.
Courteney has a nine-year-old daughter Coco with her ex-husband David Arquette.
The couple split in 2010 after 11 years of marriage but have remained good friends.
