Gwyneth Paltrow is consciously recoupling — but not with Chris Martin. Sources say she has wedding bells in mind when it comes to her current boyfriend, American Horror Story and Glee producer Brad Falchuk.
Paltrow and Falchuk met in 2010 on the set of Glee, where Paltrow had a recurring guest star role. They stayed friends until Paltrow and Martin famously “consciously uncoupled,” and then started dating in 2014. They’ve been going strong ever since.
Paltrow “plans on marrying” Falchuk, an insider told Us Weekly, and Falchuk is planning to propose “soon.”
“They speak about marriage all the time and know it’ll happen,” the source added. “He’ll do it when the time is right. And when he does, of course she will say yes.”
Their families are already down with the idea. Insiders said Paltrow’s two children she shares with Martin, 12-year-old Apple and 10-year-old Moses, “love [Falchuk] and think he’s the best.” Even Martin is on board. He and Paltrow have stayed close since their split, and sources close to the former couple say Martin fully approves of Paltrow’s new love.
“Chris totally approves of Brad,” one insider said. “He thinks he’s a good guy.”
It’s important that Falchuk has Martin’s stamp of approval because Paltrow and Martin are still such a huge part of each other’s lives.
“Gwyneth and Chris still have an amazing relationship,” a source explained. “She still considers Chris her best friend, and they always do everything together.”
Paltrow has stayed pretty private about her relationship with Falchuk ever since it began, but just a few weeks ago, she made it Instagram official by sharing a birthday message alongside a photo of Falchuk and herself.
“Happy birthday handsome,” she wrote.
