Courteney Cox is a proud mom to a very "wise" 17 year old. 

On June 13, the Friends alum—who recently reunited with her former castmates for an HBO Max special—took to Instagram to share a series of throwback photos of her daughter Coco Arquette, who is her only child with her former husband David Arquette

In the caption of the post, Courteney gushed, "Happy 17th birthday to my strong, sensitive, creative, loving, soulful, beautiful, talented, and wise Coco. I love you so much." 

Courteney also took to her Instagram Story to further spread the birthday love, writing in one post, "Happy birthday to my coconut. She's the best kind of nut!" 

The Scream actress' celebrity friends also shared their well wishes in the comments section. Mary McCormack wrote, "Happy birthday sweet Coco. We love you!" Busy Philipps shared, "Happy Birthday Coco! Always the sweetest kid." Leslie Mann dropped several heart-eyed emojis, while Sara Foster added hearts to show her support.

Courteney is a supportive mom on social media even when it's not Coco's birthday, too. In May, she shared a video of the teenager singing Taylor Swift's "cardigan" to Instagram, with Courteney at the piano. She previously posted Coco performing a Fleetwood Mac cover in October 2020.

In addition to joining Coco in her musical endeavors, she tried a TikTok dance challenge with her back in January 2020—which, err, seemed to go less well than their performance. "Wanna see your child lose their patience? Do a TikTok with them," Courteney captioned the Instagram video.

It's clear that Courteney gets a little nostalgic about her daughter growing up. Last year, she celebrated her 16th birthday by posting a throwback video to Instagram of Coco goofing off at an ice skating rink. 

"Happy sweet 16th cocolo," the mom captioned the cute video at the time. "You're my little quirk of the universe. I love you."
