Courteney Cox‘s holidays just got a little bit tougher. As if her public separation from husband David Arquette wasn’t enough, the Cougar Town actress was recently served with a “chilling” document: her daughter Coco Riley‘s Christmas list.
“She wants a puppy!” Cox, 46, tells PEOPLE with a laugh. “Which is unfortunate because we have two dogs.”
But with the 6-year-old landing firmly on Santa’s nice list, the actress seems resigned to her fate of a three-dog home, and negotiations between the two parties have already cleared their first hurdle.
“All I said was, ‘No Chihuahuas!’ explained Cox while attending the OmniPeace by Jordan Klein launch at Kitson on Friday. “[And Coco replied,] ‘No, they’re just crazy!’”
With over a month left to work out the details of her daughter’s gift, the actress is looking to keep the rest of her holidays as low-key as possible.
“I don’t have any big plans,” she admits. “Just hanging with the family.”
