Courteney Cox and boyfriend Johnny McDaid are all about strong family values. The actress gushed exclusively to Us Weekly about motherhood while attending the Spirit of Ireland Groundbreaking Gala for the Irish Arts Center event with her beau.

“Just watching her evolve and grow,” the Friends alum, 54, told Us on Friday, October 19, of the best part of watching her 14-year-old daughter, Coco, during this phase of life. “It’s an incredible experience.”

McDaid, meanwhile, opened up to Us at the event — sponsored by Bushmills Irish Whiskey — about spending quality time together with both his own brood as well as Cox and Coco during the upcoming holiday season.

“You know we have a big family. I am one of six kids,” the Snow Patrol rocker dished. “We’re kind of growing as it is and Courtney and Coco often come over and we all have a big gathering.”

The “Don’t Give In” crooner continued: “We get a house somewhere and we all get together for Ireland, so the tradition is just to gather and then see what happens. We don’t like to predict what happens because it’s pretty unpredictable.”

The Cougar Town alum revealed in a June 2017 interview with NewBeauty that she “would love to have a baby now” with McDaid. (Cox shares Coco with ex-husband David Arquette. The pair ended their 13-year marriage in 2013.)

“I mean, I could carry someone else’s egg. I may be one of the older people doing it, but I would love to, with Johnny that is,” she said at the time. “I know it’s crazy, but I would.”

Cox and McDaid got engaged in June 2014 after just six months of dating. Though they called off their engagement in December 2015, the pair later rekindled their romance.
