Johnny McDaid said he's never loved anyone as much as he loves Courteney Cox in a rare interview about their relationship. The Snow Patrol star made the confession as he walked the red carpet with Courteney at the BMI Pop Awards in Los Angeles – their first high profile appearance since rekindling their romance.
When asked about the secret to their happy relationship, Johnny told Us Weekly: "I don't know if you can put a label on what makes us work so well. But I know that I've never loved like I love this woman. So if that's enough, then that's enough."

The romantic statement prompted Courteney to reply: "How do I go after that? It's poetic. I'm literally going to sound like a toad!"
The Friends star also declined to say whether she and Johnny were engaged again, five months after they separated in December.
"Well we love each other," she said. "Yes, we're happy."

The couple's public date night comes six weeks after they sparked rumours of a reconciliation when they were spotted out together over the Easter weekend. A rep for Courteney later confirmed that the pair were spending time together again, and said there was hope that they would rekindle their relationship.
Courteney and Snow Patrol rocker Johnny began dating in late 2013 after being introduced by their mutual friend Ed Sheeran. They got engaged just a few months later during a romantic getaway to celebrate Courteney's 50th birthday, but confirmed that they had parted ways in December, with reports suggesting that they could not agree where to live.
Sources said that the pair attended counselling to try and work out their issues, but they mutually decided to end their relationship.
