Gwyneth Paltrow says ex Chris Martin is 'really like my brother'

By Emmy Griffiths

Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed that she and ex-husband Chris Martin have a wonderful relationship and close friendship. While visiting the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, she said: "He's really like my brother, we're very familial. It's nice, it's great." The pair, who share 13-year-old daughter Apple and 11-year-old son Moses, finalized their divorce in April 2015.

Speaking about 'consciously uncoupling' from Chris back in March 2014 after ten years of marriage, the Shakespeare in Love actress said: "Divorce is terrible, it was very painful, it was really hard. We really genuinely wanted our kids to be as unscathed as possible. We thought if we could really maintain the family even though we weren't a couple that was kind of the goal so that's what we've tried to do."

The star is now engaged to Brad Falchuk, and announced the exciting news on the cover of Goop magazine. She said: "We feel incredibly lucky to have come together at this juncture in our lives when our collective successes and failures can serve as building blocks for a healthy and happy relationship." Speaking about finding love again, she added: "[At] midlife, I have tried to accept how complex romantic love can be. I have decided to give it a go again. Not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy."
