Courteney Cox made quite an impression on her future mother-in-law!
During the Cougar Town actress' trip to Ireland with Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid, Cox got the chance to bond with her fiancé's mom, Pauline McDaid. "We all love her," Pauline told Northern Ireland's Sunday Life. She added that Courteney and Coco Arquette "felt at home" during their stay.
They can thank Johnny for that. "John is very much a Derryman," Pauline said of the musician. "So to be able to show Courteney around where he grew up and around his history, he was as proud as punch."
"They are head over heels in love," she gushed, "and it is lovely to see how happy they are together."
When Courteney visited their hometown of Derry, Pauline said she was "extremely empathetic" after learning about the city's iconic Peace Bridge. According to the newspaper, Pauline's late husband was instrumental in bringing the bridge to the northwest, just weeks before he lost his cancer battle.
"Courteney was very anxious to see John's home and we took her around and showed her where John grew up," Pauline, a retired art teacher, told Sunday Life. She added, "We also went up to the grave, and that was quite, well, as you can imagine...John is obviously upset that his daddy isn't going to meet her."
