Courteney Cox-Arquette Embraces Being ‘Everyone’s Mom’

Monday, Oct 19, 2009

The maternal instinct is something Courteney Cox-Arquette says she had long before welcoming daughter Coco Riley, 5. In a new interview with USA Today, the 45-year-old actress says proclaims she is “everyone’s mom,” and proud of it!

“I’m the one that you come to when you have a problem. I love it, and I’m really good at it.”

Courteney’s Cougar Town costar Josh Hopkins concurs. “She has a huge matriarchal streak to her personality,” he notes. “We’re only on Episode 8, and I go to her when I need advice on something.”

If Courteney herself needs help with anything, it would be with finding enough hours in the day to juggle the constant demands for her time. Coco recently started kindergarten and has only been picked up from school once by mom. “This is the most taxing job I’ve had,” she admits.

“This time is the most challenging. Coco goes to school for seven or eight hours a day, and we have to schedule with the nanny. We’re making it work somehow.”

Coco is Courteney’s daughter with husband David Arquette. Cougar Town airs Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. on ABC.
