With the end of summer insight, back to school season is fast-approaching, and several A-Listers are officially becoming empty nesters, including Courteney Cox.

The Friends alum shares one daughter, Coco, with ex-husband David Arquette, who she was married to from 1999 to 2012.

Now Coco is officially 19, an incoming freshman at college, and her dad is sharing his pride over her next steps in an adorable new tribute.

David took to Instagram on Monday and shared a bittersweet photo to mark his eldest daughter officially flocking the nest. 

The sweet snapshot sees Coco posing next to her stepmom Christina Arquette (née McLarty), who the Scream actor married in 2015.

"We are so proud of you @cocoarquette_ that you're going to college!!!" he wrote in the caption, adding: "We LOVE You!!!!"

His fans were quick to take to the comments section under the post to express their disbelief over how grown up Coco is, and one fan wrote: "Awwwww that's fantastic, she's gorgeous just like her mummy & daddy," as others added: "Congrats to your daughter going to college," and: "Congrats, Coco!!!! Have the best time!!!!" as well as: "Good job young lady!!!"

While Coco's departure to college makes her mom Courteney officially an empty nester, her dad David is still a couple years away from reaching empty nester status himself.

David met his second wife, a producer and media personality, back in 2011 – he and Courteney separated in 2010 – and got engaged in 2014.

They tied the knot with a wedding in Los Angeles on April 12, 2015, almost one year after welcoming their first son together, Charlie West, who is nine. They welcomed son Augustus Alexis, six, in March 2017.

Though Coco was missing from the photo, her dad endearingly added: " We miss and love you @cocoarquette_ We can't wait to see you soon!"

Meanwhile, Courteney herself has never remarried or had other kids, but she has been in a committed relationship for ten years with Johnny McDaid of Snow Patrol, after they were introduced by Ed Sheeran in 2013.
