They coined the phrase ‘consciously uncoupled’ when they split fours years ago and they are here to show us they are still sticking to it. Gwyneth Paltrow, 45, and Chris Martin, 40, took a family holiday in Antigua with children Apple, 13, and Moses, 11.
The exes have moved on and are now in new relationships. The Goop founder has been exclusive with Glee creator Brad Falchuk, 45, since 2014 and the pair are now engaged to be married.
Coldplay frontman Chris has been linked to various women since his divorce with Paltrow, his most recent is Dakota Johnson, 28. The two spent some solo time together when they recently took a holiday in Paris, France. The daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith flew back to the states after their romantic getaway alone where she landed in Aspen to spend Christmas at her family home in the quaint mountain resort town.
Martin and Paltrow have done an extraordinary job co-parenting their two children. You can also see they still hold high regard for each other. Back in March, the actress posted a family picture of the four when celebrating her ex-hubby big 40 Birthday with the kids. She went on to write “HAPPY 40th BIRTHDAY to the best daddy in the world!!! We love you so much!!!!”
The two have made it look easy to ‘consciously uncouple’ but Martin has admitted it wasn’t so easy for him, in an interview in 2016 he touched on the subject of his ‘uncoupling’ with Paltrow. “I still wake up down a lot of days. But now I feel like I’ve been given the tools to turn it around.”
And his feelings about the word divorced he went on to reply, “It’s funny. I don’t think about that word very often-divorce. I don’t see it that way. I see it more like you meet someone, you have time together and things just move through.”
The family of four seemed carefree on their vacation together. They looked like any typical family making their unorthodox family unit seem conventional. Maybe on their next family trip, the two will bring their new significant others along for the ride?
