Jennifer Aniston: The Best Aunt to BFF Courteney Cox’s Daughter

Jennifer Aniston: The Best Aunt to BFF Courteney Cox’s Daughter

Courteney Cox welcomed her daughter, Coco Arquette, in 2004 with her then-partner David Arquette. Following the birth of her child post her iconic role as Monica Geller on “Friends,” Cox received considerable support from her co-star and best friend, Jennifer Aniston. Fast forward two decades, and Aniston remains a significant figure in Coco’s life, reportedly being very protective of her.

A reliable source recently disclosed that Aniston has been mentoring her goddaughter on handling the scrutiny that comes with being the child of celebrities. Coco and Aniston share a deep bond, with the well-known actress frequently spoiling her. Aniston’s affection for Coco mirrors her enduring friendship with Cox.

Coco’s name is uniquely derived from the first two letters of her mother’s first and last names. The 20-year-old is a talented singer who has also expressed interest in acting, following in her parents’ footsteps. She has showcased her musical skills in various clips, performing songs like “Silver Springs” by Fleetwood Mac, Taylor Swift’s “Cardigan,” and Adele’s “Chasing Pavement,” often accompanied by Cox on the piano.

Coco has made impressive public performances, such as her 2019 collaboration with Snow Patrol on “Chasing Cars” and a duet of “Unwritten” with Natasha Bedingfield at UCLA’s Institute of the Environment and Sustainability benefit gala in 2021. Despite Cox’s efforts to keep her out of the limelight, Coco has shown an inclination toward public attention.

Aniston plays a significant role in Coco’s life, almost like a third parent, alongside her loving mother and father. In 2022, Coco and Cox displayed their matching tattoos, a testament to their close relationship. David also has a tattoo dedicated to Coco, inked with her first written note that says “I love mum and dad” back in 2009.

Although Aniston doesn’t have a tattoo for Coco, she frequently expresses her affection on social media. The 55-year-old actress was by Coco’s side, showing emotional support during Cox’s Hollywood Walk of Fame star unveiling. Aniston was visibly moved, shedding tears of joy and sharing the moment with Coco.

Beyond the cameras, Aniston’s bond with Coco remains unwavering. An insider close to the Cox-Arquette family shared that “Jen has had many long conversations with Coco about various subjects, offering guidance and serving as a positive role model. She also cautions her about the pitfalls of being the child of famous parents.” The source continued, “Jen is incredibly proud of the intelligent and kind young woman Coco has become as she steps into her 21st year.”

When questioned whether Aniston “spoils Coco rotten,” the insider delicately responded that it was a “matter of opinion” but emphasized that Aniston treats Coco “like a family member.”

The insider further explained that Aniston’s relationship with Coco mirrors the kind of mother-daughter bond she wished she had. “Coco is like family to Jen. Even when Jen faced challenges and tensions with Courteney, especially after her split with David, her love for Coco remained constant and unwavering.”
