Gwyneth Paltrow has signed up her husband Chris Martin and their children, Apple, 7, and Moses, 6, up for French lessons. In an interview with The Sun her mom – Blythe Danner – reveals the family’s new activity.
She reveals, “My daughter’s doing a film in Spain now, because she’s fluent in Spanish. I’m delighted. The children are fluent in Spanish too, so the whole family is now learning French. Gwyneth is the quickest learner I’ve ever met in my life.”
Blythe also says she loves the Coldplay song Fix You – a song Martin wrote for Gwyneth.
She explained, “One of the most famous ones – which I weep to every time I hear it – is ‘Fix You’. He wrote that for Gwyneth when her father Bruce died – he missed meeting Bruce by a couple of weeks.”
Bruce Paltrow died in 2002 while celebrating Paltrow’s birthday in Rome. The actress has said in a past interview she still talks to her dad in spirit.
I always hold on to his wedding ring. I ask it questions, I feel like it keeps me safe. I really sense the energy of his soul, I don’t think that evaporates. I feel my dad, I still feel his love, I still speak to him and I still love him.”
