The two stars really are the best of friends

Coco is the daughter of Jennifer's best friend Courteney and her ex-husband David Arquette. The former couple were married from 1999 until 2003 and welcomed their only child in June 2004. While Courteney prefers to keep her only child out of the spotlight, she has occasionally appeared in videos on her Instagram account.

The actress has previously opened up about looking after her friend's children when they were younger, including Coco, and revealed that she makes sure that they always have a lot of fun. "I let them play with my clothes and my jewellery," she told E! News.
