Both Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin are some of the biggest titans in Hollywood — which together, made them one of the biggest power couples in town while they were together. Back in Oct. 2002, Paltrow and Martin met backstage at a Coldplay concert, instantly hitting it off. They married a little over a year later in Dec. 2003, and welcomed two children together: Apple Blythe Alison Martin, 18, and Moses Martin, 16, over their ten years of marriage. In March 2014, they separated, with their divorce finalizing in July 2016, but they’ve worked hard ever since then to ensure their children come first as they build a new, blended family.
Paltrow and Martin have both moved on with new partners since their divorce. The Iron Man star married producer Brad Falchuk in 2018, and Martin started dating actress Dakota Johnson in 2017, of whom Paltrow is a big fan. Throughout it all, the family has remained super close. In a 2020 essay for the British Vogue, Paltrow said, “My ex and I had always been friends…We were close, though we had never fully settled into being a couple. We just didn’t quite fit together. There was always a bit of unease and unrest. But man, did we love our children.”
And that they do. The two are crazy about their kids Apple and Moses. Despite being so close, the family doesn’t post many family photos. But when they do, it’s a beautiful sight to see. From basketball games to workout selfies, we can’t get enough of the blended family.
See the best family photos below!
National Daughter Day
For National Daughter’s Day last year, Gwyneth Paltrow posted a side-by-side selfie with her daughter Apple. In a recent essay from Sunday Morning, Paltrow talked about the incredible bond she first felt with her daughter. She said, “I remember the morning my daughter, Apple, came into the world. I felt this incredible rush of love. It was so shocking that I asked my mother: ‘Do you love me this much?’ It reframed completely how I saw motherhood.”
National Son Day
For National Sons Day, Gwyneth Paltrow posted a selfie with her son Moses and their dog with the caption, “Total heart melter #nationalsonday.”
Lookalike Mother & Daughter
Back in early 2021, Gwyneth Paltrow uploaded a black-and-white photo of her and Apple. Truly, we’re seeing double here. We can’t get over how much the two look like one another.
Back in 2020, Gwyneth Paltrow posted a super-rare family selfie of her two kids Apple and Moses. She posted the rare family photo with a serious caption, saying, “On this November 26th, I was able to visit my father’s resting place (on his birthday) with these two loves of my life. Happy thanksgiving. Life has incredible highs and lows. Perhaps feeling it all at the same time is the art. 💖” Her father Bruce died in 2002 while vacationing in Italy for Gwyneth’s 30th birthday. He was only 58 years old.
The mother-daughter duo that works out together, bonds together. Back in 2020, Gwyneth Paltrow uploaded a snapshot of her and Apple breaking a sweat together.
