Gwyneth Paltrow has officially filed for divorce from Chris Martin, E! News has confirmed.

Only one day after E! News learned that they would make their "conscious uncoupling" official, it turns out Paltrow has filed the necessary documents with the court. 

A source told us Monday that Paltrow and Martin's business managers have been working out the terms of their split, including financial assets and custody of their children. The court documents indicate that Paltrow requested spousal support be determined at a future time, with both parties paying their own attorneys' fees. She also requested that the court award her and Martin joint custody of their children.

Paltrow cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for calling it quits after exactly nine years and five months, per the documents. As parents to 10-year-old daughter Apple and 9-year-old son Moses, the Iron Man actress and the Coldplay rocker have maintained a close relationship throughout their separation, even going on vacations together with their kids.

They were spotted together in the Bahamas shortly after they made their split announcement, and just recently they enjoyed a spring break Mexican getaway.

The Oscar-winning actress opened up about the state of their relationship on Howard Stern's radio show on SiriusXM and explained they "actually have a really strong friendship."

"We have kids, we're always going to be a family," she added, saying that their decision to separate was rooted in trying to "find the positives" about their relationship for the sake of their children.

"We laugh and we have fun but there are times when it's really difficult," she dished. "Things happen and you're like, I'm sure he doesn't want to hang out with me and I don't want to hang out with him but for the sake of the kids, you do it…You say, 'I really want to find the love for you and I want to forgive you and I want you to forgive me and let's have some fun as a family.'"

They seem to always be on the same page, as Martin echoed her sentiments in a different interview. "We are very close. We are not together…There's lots of love. No scandal, I'm afraid," he said.
