The star tweets that she is engaged to Johnny McDaid, a pianist, drummer and back-up vocalist for the band Snow Patrol. The band wrote three songs for Cox’s film “Just Before I Go.”

At the red carpet for the “Go” premiere, Cox told Us Weekly that McDaid “supports [her] in every way.” “He really believed in the movie … and not just because he likes me, though I know that helps,” quips Cox.

The two met in late 2013 and debuted as a couple at a holiday party at “Friends” co-star Jennifer Aniston’s house. They moved in together in the spring of 2014. This is McDaid’s first marriage, Cox’s second. She was previously married to her “Scream” co-star David Arquette for 14 years.
