And that includes relying on the luck of the Irish!
After a nun urged them to follow the local ritual for newly engaged couples before their wedding, a source said, Cox walked to a spot beneath McDaid’s window “during the witching hour (midnight to 1 a.m.)” and whispered his name “three times to the night wind.”
Cox and the Snow Patrol musician announced their engagement on June 26 via Twitter, and she met his family while in Ireland.
The source also told The ENQUIRER that Cox loves McDaid’s hometown so much, she’s now determined to walk down the aisle in an Irish castle.
The two sparked rumors that they would soon wed after they were spotted looking at rings at a jewelry store in Derry.
Cox’s divorce from Arquette (father to her daughter, Coco) was finalized last year, and he proposed to his baby mama Christina McLarty just days after his former Friends star ex and McDaid got engaged.
