Courteney Cox and Johnny McDaid did not get engaged for the second time, despite a new tabloid report. Gossip Cop can correct this claim, which wrongly alleges the singer popped the question in a restaurant. We’re told it’s “not true.”
As was widely reported, Cox and McDaid first got engaged in 2014, but they called off their engagement the following year. Now, according to OK!, the couple is “ready to tie the knot.” A so-called “source” is quoted as telling the gossip magazine, “Johnny swept Courteney off her feet during a romantic dinner, bending down on one knee and proposing to her right in the restaurant.”
The publication’s questionable “insider” further claims McDaid “apologized for keeping her waiting for so long and said he wants to spend the rest of his life with his soul mate. The way he put it, they’ve been putting this off long enough and now it’s time to follow through and become man and wife.” Was the tabloid’s source hiding under the table in order to hear all this?
Regardless, the outlet goes on to allege that the couple is even considering trying for a baby. “Courteney says Johnny is perfect father material, though she’s not putting too much pressure on that,” continues the tabloid’s highly suspect tipster, before adding, “She’s just so thrilled that they’ll finally be making it official. She lights up when she talks about it. He’s without question the love of her life.”
Gossip Cop investigated the story, and a source close to the former “Friends” star tells us the report is 100 percent “not true.” It should be noted the magazine glaringly neglects to mention when or where the couple supposedly got engaged for the second time. Of course, had the tabloid said the name of the restaurant and on what date McDaid allegedly proposed, it would have made it even easier to nail the tabloid for making up this take. Additionally, if the purported proposal was in such a public place as a restaurant in front of other diners, how in this world of social media was OK! the only place to know about it?
Simply, the entire article is nothing more than a fabrication. But this isn’t the first time Gossip Cop has busted the unreliable tabloid for publishing a bogus report about Cox. We previously corrected the magazine, for example, when it falsely claimed a year ago that Cox and Jennifer Aniston were working on a new TV show together. Much like that inaccurate tale, this latest one about the actress and McDaid getting engaged for the second time in a restaurant is equally untrue.
Gossip Cop has determined this story is totally false.
