wyneth Paltrow has been known to endorse pretty crazy things: putting jade eggs into your vagina, eating silver that can turn your skin permanently blue, naming her child Moses, etcetera. But now, she’s doing something that’s actually super reasonable and heartwarming.
Gwyneth used to be married to Coldplay lead singer and co-founder Chris Martin.
They said that they “consciously uncoupled” in 2014, but they didn’t officially get divorced until July of 2016. In 2014, Gwyneth released a statement on her Goop blog that said, “We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” according to Glamour.
Even though they’re divorced, Gwyneth and Chris often meet up for the sake of their kids.
After their divorce, Chris told Glamour about his experience. He said, “It’s always out there in the media, but I have a very wonderful separation-divorce. I’ve lived a lot since then. It’s a divorce, but it’s a weird one. You can come at it very aggressively and blame and blame. Or you can put yourself in the garage, so to speak. Take yourself apart and clean off the bits. Reassemble.”
Chris and Gwyneth have two kids. Moses is 11 and Apple is 13.
They put their kids first and worked on co-parenting after divorce. She told Entertainment Tonight about their process: “You have to constantly let go… You have to let go of old ideas, old resentments. You have to put the kids first, which I think people have the idea of that, but then oftentimes, you struggle with it.”
Gwyneth said that she thinks that she and Chris have contributed something positive to the culture of divorce.
She told Entertainment Tonight, “And to this day, Chris would take a bullet for me… Even though I’m not his wife.” Gwyneth has talked about having regular brunch dates with her ex.
She still posts pictures of her and Chris celebrating Mother’s Day and Father’s Day with their kids.
But yesterday, she took her commitment to smoothing things over to another level. She posted a picture of Chris and her new fiancé at brunch together…
