It’s over for Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin. The A-list couple announced Tuesday they’re separating after 10 years of marriage.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” the parents of daughter Apple, 9½, and son Moses, 7½, announced via GOOP under the title “Conscious Uncoupling.”
“We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate,” the statement continues.
The pair go on to talk about their dedication to coparent their kids.
“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” they share. “We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner,” concludes the announcement, signed, “Love, Gwyneth & Chris.”
Academy Award-winner Paltrow, 41, and Coldplay frontman Martin, 37, tied the knot in a secret ceremony in late 2003 and for years have faced breakup rumors.
