Courteney Cox pens birthday tribute for her ‘courageous’ daughter Coco

Coco Arquette, Courteney Cox’s daughter, is celebrating her 18th birthday.


On Monday, Courteney Cox came to Instagram to wish Coco Arquette, her only child, a happy 18th birthday. With her first husband, David Arquette, whom she married from 1999 to 2013, the 57-year-old Friends actor has a daughter. She sent a series of nostalgic images and a beautiful note to her daughter on her birthday.

“Happy 18th birthday coco! I’m so proud to be your mom. She further penned, “You are courageous, smart, deep, funny, unique, and beautiful with the biggest heart. I can’t wait to see what’s next. I love you x.” Leslie Mann added love emoticons to the slideshow, while Kate Hudson exclaimed, “Happy Birthday Coco!”

Coco, on the other hand, was born to Cox and her then-husband, David Arquette, in June 2004. The former couple struggled to have a child, with the Cougar Town star suffering from miscarriages on several occasions. “It was really weird because everyone in my family has kids,” she told NBC News in May 2004, as per Page Six. “I remember one time I just had a miscarriage and Rachel was giving birth. It was, like, that same time,” she explained. “Oh, my God, it was terrible having to be funny.” Meanwhile, for those unversed, The Shining Vale actress and Arquette, 50, divorced and started co-parenting Coco nine years after she was born.


While Arquette has yet to wish Coco a happy birthday on Instagram, he did congratulate her on her acceptance to college in December 2021. Courteney is now seeing Johnny McDaid, with whom she has been dating since 2013. In June of 2014, the couple confirmed their engagement.
