The multi-talented Ed Sheeran has one more skill that the world wasn't aware of: matchmaking!

Turns out Sheeran hooked up his celeb pal Courteney Cox with her new boyfriend, Snow Patrol's Johnny McDaid. The two musicians are longtime pals and currently living together. And it looks as if the set-up was a smashing success, as Cox and McDaid are now happily out about their relationship.

Sheeran spills the details to omg! Insider: "I wasn't allowed to talk about this, actually, but it's just gone public so... My housemate, who I've lived with for a year, I introduced him to Courteney Cox. They started dating and [are] crazy about each other."

So much for those crazy rumors that it was Sheeran who was romancing Cox! "I read in the press that I'm now Courteney's younger lover. It's not true," he told E! News on Dec. 6. "It's very funny because I know the person that is her lover and I send them all the emails of everything. It's very funny."

Maybe Ed feel the need to pay forward the love, after being set up with model-actress Claire Donald by his bestie Taylor Swift!

Meanwhile, Ed also revealed the embarrassing story behind that photo of him spending Thanksgiving Eve with Courteney's BFF Jennifer Aniston: He passed out at Jen's pool from partying too hard!
