Courteney Cox has admitted that she wouldn’t say no to marrying Northern Irish musician Johnny McDaid.

The Friends star has been dating the Snow Patrol singer since 2013, after they were introduced by mutual friend Ed Sheeran.

The pair got engaged in June 2014 after six months of dating but called off their wedding in November 2015 when they temporarily split up.

Speaking to People Magazine, 57-year-old Courteney admitted that she wouldn’t rule out marrying her beau if he proposed to her a second time.

She said: “I'm definitely not opposed to it. I just don't think about it. I don’t know.”

She also praised Johnny as “a great listener” as she gushed about what she loves most about him.

“I've never met someone more patient," she began.

“He's a great advice-giver. I love his heart, his intentions. His morals. He's extremely talented and obviously musical, but he's a poet and a writer. He's just so smart, and I find that really sexy. And then he is gorgeous.”

The actor admitted that she’s learned a lot about love over the years, especially after spending the first Covid lockdown away from Johnny while he was stuck overseas.

“I've learned you can't take a lot personally,” Courteney explained.

“I used to think, ‘Oh well, if you loved me...’ It's not really about you. People do things because of their own history and their own past. I had to learn that lesson for sure.

“I've learned that love is precious. As I've gotten older, I've realized that,” she added.
