Former Hollywood power duo Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin sent shockwaves across the globe when they announced their divorce back in 2016. Fast forward two years and the actor tied the knot with American beau and writer-producer Brad Falchuk. While many believed the estranged couple ended their relationship on a sour note and things were not good between them, it turns out otherwise. Paltrow revealed that she is still close to the Coldplay frontman for the sake of their children and the duo dealt with their split as mature individuals, keeping their kids before anything else. Well, kudos to them because that is how it should be!
Paltrow was married to Martin for 10 years and the former pair share two children – 15-year-old daughter Apple and son Moses, who is 13 years of age. Martin is now dating Dakota Johnson. Paltrow and Martin have even been spotted vacationing together in the Hamptons and in New York with their respective spouses. "My ex and I are really close. We remain a family, even though we’re not a couple," Paltrow said.
She added they wanted to part ways in a way that was the least traumatic for their children, but mentioned, "I'm sure I’ve messed the kids up in other ways." Paltrow shares a close bond with Johnson and even wished her on her birthday last week in the sweetest Instagram post. She publicly wished Johnson and penned a short but sweet note for the birthday girl. "Happy 30th birthday to this absolute gem," she captioned a photo of Johnson cuddling with her puppy. She also added a blue heart emoji. It's no secret that Gwyneth and Dakota are on great terms, despite the Fifty Shades of Grey star dating the mom of two's former husband. Both ladies apparently hang out many a times too!
