Courtney Cox's Daughter Is 13 Now, And She's Following In Her Mom's Footsteps

Being born to parents who are both Hollywood stars can make for an interesting childhood. While some celebrities have no issue with putting their children under the limelight, some prefer to keep them hidden from the prying eyes of the public.

Friends alum Courteney Cox and actor David Arquette belong in the latter group.

During their 14-year marriage, the couple welcomed a daughter, Coco. Just like a few other celebrity children, the young girl has maintained a relatively low profile.

Since she was born in 2004, we've only seen her a handful of times.


Although Cox and Arquette went their separate ways in May 2012, they remain friends and co-parents, and it looks like they've inspired the now 13-year-old to follow in their footsteps.

In the last few years, Coco has been slowly embracing the spotlight by accompanying her parents to special events and film premieres. Back in 2015, she was even spotted wearing heels while attending the premiere of her mom's directorial debut, Just Before I Go.

More recently, the teenager took it a step further by starring in two music videos. This has reminded people of Courteney's big break when she appeared in Bruce Springsteen's video for his 1984 hit 'Dancing in the Dark.'

In 2016, at just 12-years-old, Coco made her on-screen debut in a music video for Irish singer Foy Vance. The song titled 'Coco', was inspired by the young girl, and the video was directed by her mom.

"From the first time Foy played 'Coco' for me — and every time I've heard it since — I've felt he captured, not only Coco's unique personality but also the beautiful childhood innocence that sadly, but inevitably, fades with time," Cox told People Magazine.

About a year later, Coco appeared in her second music video for Monogem's 'Wild.' This prompted her dad to share a post on Instagram expressing how proud he was of his daughter, who isn't so little anymore.

So proud of my daughter Coco and her performance in the @monogem video link below...

It seems like Coco's flame is burning brighter as she grows up. While she may have taken to acting, her mother seems to think that she could be a singer if she wanted to.

"She's a really good singer," Courteney said during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "I don't know where she got it."

Despite being part of some major projects, Coco is still laying low. The teenager doesn't even have public social media accounts, but her parents have been sharing photos and videos of their daughter.

In a recent photo shared on Twitter by Arquette, Coco is half smiling at the camera while sitting at a restaurant looking grown up. He captioned the sweet snap, "My Angel."

People were taken aback by how fast the teenager has grown and they took to twitter to express this.

Time surely does fly, but we're happy to be seeing more of Coco. She's definitely one to watch.
