Courteney Cox Dishes on Engagement, 20th Anniversary of 'Friends'

It was quite the coincidence Monday, when Courteney Cox made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live exactly ten years after the premiere episode of Friends aired!

“We [watched it] every single Thursday for, like, the first year,” she said of the famous cast, adding that they mostly got together at her house. “I provided good snacks,” she laughed.

To this day, the actress is still best friends with her costar Jennifer Aniston, and while dishing on her recent engagement to Johnny McDaid, revealed she actually got her ring at the Cake star’s home.

“Johnny first asked [my daughter], Coco,” she explained. “He said, ‘I’d like to marry your mom,’ and gave her a little diamond ring and got on his knee. And she said, ‘Great, I’m going to camp tomorrow. Let’s do it right now!’ So they decided they were going to do it that night.”

Well, it turned out that Courteney and Coco already had plans for dinner at Jen’s house that evening (she’s the godmother of her former costar’s only child). “They made a plan to count down from three, and when they got to one, he was going to get on his knee and say, ‘Will you marry me?’ and she was going to say, ‘Will you marry him?'” the Hot in Cleveland Star added. “And they planned it out — they found this perfect tree that had three branches that led to one trunk. It was just beautiful.”

Unfortunately, the 10-year-old got a bit impatient and almost ruined the surprise! Check out the video above to get the full story!
