While on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” guest hosted by mother-daughter duo Kate Hudson and Goldie Hawn, actress and lifestyle guru Gwenyth Paltrow opened up about her family life.
In 2018, Paltrow got remarried to producer Brad Falchuk, two years after her divorce to the lead singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin.
Following their wedding, Paltrow and Flachuk went on their honeymoon, but as Hudson pointed out during the show, it wasn’t your conventional honeymoon.
Not only did Paltrow bring her two children from her previous marriage to Martin, but another family who they usually travel with came as well.
And on top of that, her ex-husband also made an appearance.
As Paltrow said on the show, Martin and Falchuk are “friends”:
In a new interview with ES Magazine, Paltrow opened up about her divorce, she said it was imperative for her and Martin to not let the end of their 11-year marriage negatively affect their children:
“We were separated for a year before we announced we were separated. We kept it very quiet, and in that time I asked adult friends with divorced parents what they remembered. There was this resounding theme: ‘It was really hard because for the first two years my parents didn’t speak.’ ‘It was awful for a while,’ or ‘My parents hated each other’. And I thought, ‘I would really love to skip that part.’ Those kids felt they were constantly betraying one parent by being with the other.”
“It doesn’t have to be the end of your relationship with somebody. I think Chris and I were meant to be together and have our kids. But our relationship is much better like this: friends and co-parents and family.”
While some think the relationship between Martin, Paltrow, and Falchuk is “weird,” others found it mature:
That’s awesome!! And rare!
A true modern family!
Awkward~ yet commendable. Sane people can do this~ some exes are asses & no way could it work. Both these are good guys! Good for kids! No Parental Alienation with one parent bashing the other to the kids who end up in therapy for life & the bashed parent ruined. So I’m giving this ?? but staying married is better. Marry the right guy in the first place.
Love is the only answer! Humanly proud of this picture.
Good for them that they are still friends and co-parenting together in a loving respectful manner.
As Dearly previously reported, friendly exes Anna Faris and Chris Pratt, also have a similar relationship when it comes to co-parenting.
