Courteney Cox is reportedly “smitten” with her new boyfriend.
The 49-year-old actress has recently been getting close to 37-year-old Snow Patrol member Johnny McDaid.
Although she has dated actor Brian Van Holt since her divorce from David Arquette in June last year Courteney is now said to be feeling more loved up than ever.
“Courteney says Johnny is the first man she’s felt secure with since her split from David. She’s not bothered about the age gap, because Johnny’s really mature and sensitive. She’s told pals she’s smitten with him,” a source told British magazine Closer.
It was recently announced David is expecting a child with his on/off girlfriend Christina McLarty. He and Courteney have nine-year-old daughter Coco together.
Upon learning the news, the brunette beauty is believed to have been grateful to have the support of Johnny as she came to terms with her ex-husband becoming a father again.
“It hit Courteney hard when she found out David was set to become a dad again. They’d always wanted another child together, so it was weird to get her head around him having a baby with someone else,” the insider added.
“Having Johnny in her life has helped her close that chapter. Now she can see a future with him, it’s changed her whole perspective. Johnny’s equally smitten with Courteney and can’t wait to see how things develop.”
