Name: Coco Riley Arquette

Birthdays: 13th June, 2004

Famous for: Being the much awaited first child of actor couple Courteney Cox-Arquette and David Arquette. The couple went through IVF and several miscarriages before announcing their pregnancy with Coco, when Courteney was almost 5 months along.

Name meaning: Courteney wanted to call her Courteney, after her (obviously) and her mother. However, David’s Jewish religion prefers children not to be named after living relatives, and instead they compromised apparently going with Coco due to the combination of the "co" from "Courteney Cox." Riley is a name the couple liked.

Famous relatives: David is the youngest of five sibling actors; Richmond, Alexis, Rosanna and Patricia. Also, Jennifer Aniston is her godmother.
