When asked whether the couple had had a wedding ceremony, he said: "We have one every morning when we look at each other.

"My thoughts are never without Court. She's my best friend. She's my partner, in everything. When I write her poems, it's just an extension of how I feel every second anyway, and that's true for me."

The pair also revealed that they will spend Christmas together with Courtney's 14-year-old daughter Coco - from marriage to David Arquette - but admit they haven't got any set plans as they don't want to be "boxed in".

Johnny said: "We get together. That's our tradition. We don't really have anything laid in stone because that would box us in. We just get together and see what happens.

Courteney added: "We hang out, sing songs, play music, eat and drink ... and be together."

The actress joked about creating a Christmas album with her daughter who she thinks is a "fantastic singer" however shared that she still encourages her daughter to pay attention to her school work.

She said: "Coco is really a fantastic singer. But it's like make sure you do your homework because this is not going to pay your bills... necessarily."
