Johnny McDaid might be the one for Courtney Cox, but she refuses to call him her ‘partner’.

The actress and Snow Patrol Singer are continuing to go strong and love each other deeply, so why is it so difficult for Courtney Cox to label their relationship?

The term is not easy for Cox to use

While on Jimmy Kimmel Live this past Monday, Courtney Cox spoke highly about her other half Johnny McDaid.

The actress sat down with Kimmel and discussed her relationship with the Snow Patrol lead singer.

Cox rarely refers to McDaid as her boyfriend since they are way past the early stages of dating. The singer has always referred to Cox as his “partner” but it has been a little bit harder for her to do the same.

Jimmy Kimmel asked the actress, “How is your…man friend? What will we call Johnny?” Cox replied, “My man friend—that’s good. I don’t know if that would go over that well,” she admitted. “He’s my partner—that’s what he calls it. Partner.”

Courtney Cox then went onto explaining why she isn’t crazy about the term but still tries her best to use it. “I’m from Alabama, so you don’t really say, partner, unless you’re in the same sex,” she explained. “He’s my guy, he’s my one, but saying partner is difficult for me.”

The actress then went onto recall a certain instance when she was traveling a little while back, “I was in Atlanta not that long ago and I was like, ‘Oh, I’m supposed to meet my partner at Section F’ and they were like, ‘Oh, I’m sure she’s gonna be there, don’t worry.”

Love is all that matters

Though Courtney Cox is not adamant on using certain terms that allude to her other half, she is still very much head over heels for Johnny McDaid.

It can be understood why McDaid constantly refers to Cox as his ‘partner’ seeing as though him being British means he has a different vocabulary than the actress.

‘Partner’ is most likely a term used for all types of relationships from where he comes.

Though the actress is still getting comfortable with the term, she and McDaid are still going very strong.

The couple began dating a few years back and officially announced their engagement in 2014. Unfortunately, Cox and McDaid called off their engagement a year later only to confirm they were back together after being spotted walking the red carpet in 2016.

Since then, the couple has been enjoying their relationship. Many have wondered when the two would eventually get married but Cox and McDaid believe that they already are.

Courtney Cox revealed, “We’re not married,” she said, “I’m married in my heart.”

Johnny McDaid feels the same way as his other half after stating, “My thoughts are never without Court. She’s my best friend. She’s my partner, in everything. When I write her poems, it’s just an extension of how I feel every second anyway, and that’s true for me.”

True love at it’s finest!
