She's not so little anymore! Courteney Cox hit the red carpet with her 14-year-old daughter, Coco Arquette, on Tuesday, June 19 — and we can't get over how gorgeous and grown up Coco looks in the new pics. The mother-daughter duo stepped out in London for a fun girls' night at an Ed Sheeran concert. Interestingly, Courteney, 54, and Ed, have a special friendship as the singer introduced the Friends star to her now-fiancé, Johnny McDaid, several years ago.

Though Coco may now be in her teenage rebellion years, she and her mom, Courteney, still maintain a very close relationship. The actress has admitted that raising a teenager comes with its challenges, though. "I want her to tell me everything, and she doesn’t want to tell me anything," Courteney previously said of Coco. "Exactly the opposite of the childhood I had."
Although the mother-daughter duo butt heads every now and then, Courteney knows this is just a normal part of parenthood. "We bicker, let’s be honest, but we love each other," she told People during an joint interview with Coco in April. "We laugh a lot, for sure." Coco added, "I would also describe it as, well, I am a [teenage] girl, you are a mom, so I love you, but of course we’re gonna get in fights. But we’re very close. Very close. I love you a lot."
Thankfully, it doesn't seem like Coco has given Courteney too much trouble. "It’s mostly me telling Coco, 'Please get out of your room and come and have dinner in the kitchen.' There’s a lot of that, for sure," she joked. "She’s [a teen], she likes to be in her room. Unfortunately, I got her this big bed and that was the biggest mistake I’ve made. You need to make a bed really uncomfortable so all they wanna do is just go there for those hours they have to. That’s the big thing, I think."
But the proud mom also couldn't help but gush about her little girl, who's already wise beyond her years. "If a stressful situation is going on, she helps me contain my stress and make me feel better. She’s taught me a lot about how to be a stronger person in general," Courteney continued. "She’s taught me patience. Probably one of the biggest things she’s taught me is to not take things personally, because really it’s not about us. Whatever moods that she goes through where things happen, I’m the safest place to be able to take it out on. It’s never about me, unless it’s actually about me."

Courteney previously praised her daughter in a 2017 interview with Fox News, saying that she goes to a very progressive school and "she knows more than I do. She teaches me everything."
The mom-of-one shares her only child with ex-husband David Arquette. The former couple welcomed Coco back in June 2004. Though the star and David, 46, divorced after 14 years of marriage in 2013, the actor recently praised Courteney for being a "wonderful mom" to their daughter. "We are friends and we love each other. We're incredible co-parents, she's a wonderful mother, we love our daughter and we just want a healthy relationship for that, in general," he said. So sweet!
