His dancing days may be over, but Scream actor David Arquette is seeing the silver lining after being booted from the ABC reality show — being with his 7-year-old daughter, Coco. But first, he has to break the news of his elimination to his biggest fan.
“Coco will be sad, but she also knows it means I get more time with her, so that makes her happy,” Arquette tells Us.
Coco spent many nights in the audience of Dancing with the Stars alongside mom Courteney Cox, cheering on her dad and pro dance partner Kym Johnson week after week.
Now, David’s ready to return the favor, getting back into his regular routine which includes supporting his little girl’s own aspirations.
“[I can’t wait to start] taking my daughter to school, going to ice skating practice with her — and sleeping!” says the proud – and tired – papa. “I woke up at 3:30 this morning and just amped up! It’s so much high pressure and stress and I’m looking forward to a lack of anxiety on Mondays.”
