Courteney Cox to wed?

Courteney Cox could beat Jennifer Aniston up the aisle.

The former Friends stars are both currently loved up, with Jennifer announcing her engagement to Justin Theroux in August 2012 and Courteney stepping out with boyfriend Johnny McDaid in December last year.

Speculation about Jennifer’s impending nuptials have been rife since Justin popped the question, but now it seems 49-year-old Courteney might get their first.

“Courteney and Johnny are crazily in love. They’ve moved in together and can’t see any reason to wait for a wedding,” a source divulged to British magazine Star.

“They believe they’re soul mates and this is the next step. It seems they’ll tie the knot before Jen!”

Courteney has been married once before to David Arquette, but they finalized their divorce last year.

She’s now well and truly moving on, with the source adding that she and Johnny plan to have three days of festivities in Ireland, where the Snow Patrol singer hails from.

“They’ve been to see venues and agreed on an idyllic castle on the west coast,” the insider continued.

“And they’ve been talking about a date in spring.”

Courteney has daughter Coco, nine, with David.

Her daughter, warming to her new flame, has apparently cemented the idea of a wedding for Courteney.

“Coco has met Johnny and she really likes him,” the source explained.

“It has convinced Courteney he’s right for her. David has also met him and really likes him, too. Courteney gets on well with David’s new girlfriend Christina McLarty – who’s expecting their child – and it means a lot to her that they can all be friendly.”
