Courteney Cox posted a hilarious tribute to her Snow Patrol star partner Johnny McDaid to celebrate their 9th anniversary.
While poking fun at their “long-distance love”, the actress surprised fans when, at the end of her effusive speech to McDaid, the camera panned to a TV showing a performance by Snow Patrol in an Instagram post.
“What a beautiful nine year anniversary we’ve had,” she began. “It was a very special time and I love the flowers.”
“It’s so cute, they’re beautiful,” she beamed. “And just to be so connected and intimate.”
Suddenly the camera flips and shows McDaid on screen performing in front of a crowd of fans somewhere around the world.
“He looked at me!” the friends star says.
Fans loved Courteney’s take on the celebrity couple making their relationship work.
“Love from afar!” She captioned the post.
Courteney and Johnny started dating in 2013, but broke up just two years later, calling off their engagement.

They got back together a few months later and have been together ever since, but don’t see marriage as an option again.
“Isn’t that strange?” Courteney said on the Ellen DeGeneres show, “We broke off our engagement and he moved to England, then we got back together and it’s actually better than before. Everything’s better.”
Courteney met her Northern Irish partner through singer/songwriter legend Ed Sheeran, who invited the Snow Patrol boys and Taylor Swift to a party at the actress’ home.
Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen, actress Isla Fisher and colleagues friends Star Jennifer Aniston was also there to witness the couple’s reunion.
“I remember looking at Johnny and thinking, ‘Oh wow, he’s really intense, he’s got these eyes and he was playing the piano and I was like, ‘He’s really, really handsome,'” she told Howard Stern on his radio show .
