Happy 10th Birthday Coco Arquette

Name: Coco Riley Arquette

Date of Birth: June 13, 2004

Parents: Courteney Cox & David Arquette

Siblings: Charlie, nearly 2 months


♥ Coco was born in Los Angeles, Calif.

♥ She weighed 8lbs & 6oz at birth

♥ Mom Courteney went into labor on her five year wedding anniversary – June 12, 2004 – and gave birth to her daughter the next day, just two days before her 40th birthday

♥ Her parents split up in 2010

♥ Coco became a big sister this year when Papa David Arquette and his girlfriend Christina McLarty had son Charlie in April

“Courteney comes from the south and her mother’s name’s Courteney Cox and she’s Courteney Cox and she wanted to name our kid Courteney Cox, but I’m half Jewish. My mother was Jewish, so it’s sort of against the Jewish tradition to (name a child) after somebody who’s living.” David, on the origin of his daughter’s name.

“This Halloween she’s going to be a half angel-half devil. But at one point she wanted to be a baby-old man-detective and she had this whole outfit planned out. She had a bib, she had a mustache, glasses, a pacifier, and I was like, ‘That’s very David, isn’t it?’ To just come up and be that creative. I see a lot of both of us in Coco, for sure. She’s very, very split down the middle between the two of us, and Coco is really, really, really creative. She is half devil and half angel, so I thought [the costume] was just typecasting for her. She just really has a big heart, and she’s 8, not mischievous, but she’s bold.” Courteney on her daughter.

    Coco is definitely an Arquette. She looks so much (imo) like her aunt Patricia she could be her kid. I think Courtney Cox and David Arquette have handled their split like adults and loving parents. They seem to have a genuine friendship.
