As Life & Style exclusively revealed, the actress, 49, brought her new man to pal Jennifer Aniston’s holiday party over the weekend.

Here are five things to know about The Cougar Town star’s new man.

EXCLUSIVE: Courteney Cox's Mystery Date to Jennifer Aniston's Party Revealed

1) BFF Is Ed Sheeran
Perhaps that’s how Ed ended up having Thanksgiving dinner at both Courteney and Jen’s homes this year! Johnny made the move to LA to work on Ed’s sophomore album. The “Lego House” singer revealed the pair worked on it for two years and that it was complete on Dec. 4. See pic below:



2) His Look-a-Like Is True Blood's Stephen Moyer
And he’s even tweeted about it!
 

3) Connection to Cameron Diaz
He was formerly the singer and songwriter of the band Vega4. Their first single release, "Life Is Beautiful," from their second album, You and Others, was the song for the theatrical trailer of the 2009 film My Sister’s Keeper, which starred Cam.

4) His Music Might Sound Familiar
Johnny’s songs have been featured on many TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy and One Tree Hill. Movies, too! Into the Blue and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants to name a couple.

5) Inked Up
He has a tattoo on his left arm. It reads "nuair is gá dom fillead abaile is tú mo réalt eolais" — an Irish Gaelic translation of the song “Guiding Light” by fellow Northern Irishman Foy Vance. Both Ed and Foy have the same tattoo. The song was written for Johnny’s late father, who died in July 2011.
