'Courtney Cox wants to marry Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid in Ireland'

COURTNEY Cox and Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid could tie the knot in Ireland, it has been reported.

The 50-year-old actress and the rocker confirmed their engagement on their Twitter accounts last month, after Derry-native McDaid is believed to have popped the question during a romantic holiday in Turks and Caicos.

The location of the wedding has been speculated with one source telling British magazine Closer: "She [Courtney] wants a small wedding ceremony in Ireland, where Johnny's from. She can't believe how happy she is."

Other reports have also suggested that the pair could tie the knot in the Friends star’s hometown of Birmingham, Alabama.

Ed Sheeran introduced the couple to each other last year, after which they dated for seven months until McDaid proposed.

The singer-songwriter previously hinted at a marriage between them earlier this year.

“I wouldn’t be surprised, but it’s still early days,” he told UK newspaper The Mirror in response to whether he thinks the couple will tie the knot soon.

“They certainly enjoy each other’s company and feel very comfortable with each other... I’m not sure that it’s public knowledge, so maybe I shouldn’t have said anything – but, yes, they’re already living together,” Ed confirmed.

“Things are moving fast. He moved in and, judging by the last time I saw them, they couldn’t be happier.

“They get on really well and are genuinely good friends, pardon the pun.”
