Cox, 55, updated fans during McDaid’s recovery period by sharing a funny Instagram post about her longtime love’s condition on Sunday, June 30. The former Friends star shared a cute selfie of the duo, as she revealed Dr. Todd Lanman — a neurosurgeon in Beverly Hills who specializes in spine surgery and artificial disc replacement — helped improve the Snow Patrol guitarists’ state.
“Happy to be taking care of my man….I’M HIS NUMBER ONE FAN! Johnny has sooo many platinum discs, now he has two made of titanium,” Cox said of McDaid, poking fun at his injury. “Thank you @drtoddlanman for your incredible work.”
Cox’s post received support from fellow Cougar Town alum Busy Philipps, who wished for McDaid, 42, to “get better soon.” Justin Theroux, who was formerly married to Cox’s best friend Jennifer Aniston, also hoped the rocker would feel “better.” Sara Foster sent heart emojis their way and Yael Cohen, the founder of F–k Cancer and wife of Scooter Braun, commented that she was “sending love.”
Cox and McDaid are no strangers to trekking through bumps in the road. The couple, who began dating in 2013, called off their engagement 17 months after the Irish rocker popped the question in June 2014. They reconciled their relationship six months later.
