Sure, Courteney Cox could hire a high-powered event planner to orchestrate her wedding to fiancé Johnny McDaid, but why do that when you have free labor from a 10 year old girl? EXACTLY. It’s called ECONOMICS, people.
According to the Friends actress, daughter Coco Arquette has very specific ideas about the upcoming nuptials, including lots of cotton candy and a One Direction concert. Kidding! She’s a hollywood kid. She’s into drugs and instagram. KIDDING! Us Weekly reports:
“Coco’s great. Coco is very excited about the wedding,” Cox said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, April 21. “I was going to hire a wedding planner, but apparently she wants to do it. She’s 10, but she wants to do everything.”
That includes fulfilling her mom’s need for a bridal party. “She wants to be the maid of honor, which I think is weird,” the Cougar Town star joked. “She wants to be the flower girl, all the bridesmaids — she’s just very excited about it.”
As Us Weekly exclusively reported back in March, Coco is also planning to perform at Cox’s “I dos” with Snow Patrol rocker McDaid. Her first gig as a wedding singer was earlier this month, when dad David Arquette (Cox’s ex) married Christina McLarty on April 12.
“She just sang at David’s wedding, because David got married last week,” Cox shared. “And she sang two songs…She’s a really good singer. I don’t know where she got it.”
Indeed, as the proud mom bragged to DeGeneres, Coco recently earned the role of Elphaba in her school’s production of Wicked. “She takes singing lessons, but she got the lead in this play, and like I said, she sang two songs [at David’s wedding],” Cox boasted. “She sang ‘I Will Always Love You.’ That’s a hard song!”
Geez, a middle school busybody with her nose in everyone’s nuptials? Somebody give this kid a mystery to solve, a la Harriet The Spy or Nancy Drew. In fact, if we harness Coco’s sheer talent, we can probably do away with Isis, world hunger or at LEAST figure out why Kim Kardashian is famous.
