Coco's on the job! Courteney Cox could hire a high-powered event planner to orchestrate her wedding to fiancé Johnny McDaid — or she could just hand over the reins to daughter Coco Arquette, 10. According to the Friends actress, 50, Coco has very specific ideas about the upcoming nuptials, and has taken it upon herself to bring those ideas to life.
"Coco's great. Coco is very excited about the wedding," Cox said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, April 21. "I was going to hire a wedding planner, but apparently she wants to do it. She's 10, but she wants to do everything."
That includes fulfilling her mom's need for a bridal party. "She wants to be the maid of honor, which I think is weird," the Cougar Town star joked. "She wants to be the flower girl, all the bridesmaids — she's just very excited about it."
As Us Weekly exclusively reported back in March, Coco is also planning to perform at Cox's "I dos" with Snow Patrol rocker McDaid. Her first gig as a wedding singer was earlier this month, when dad David Arquette (Cox's ex) married Christina McLarty on April 12.
"She just sang at David's wedding, because David got married last week," Cox shared. "And she sang two songs…She's a really good singer. I don't know where she got it."
Indeed, as the proud mom bragged to DeGeneres, Coco recently earned the role of Elphaba in her school's production of Wicked. "She takes singing lessons, but she got the lead in this play, and like I said, she sang two songs [at David's wedding]," Cox boasted. "She sang 'I Will Always Love You.' That's a hard song!"
