How does Gwyneth Paltrow really feel about Chris Martin getting back into the romance game with 24-year-old Jennifer Lawrence?

Not that surprisingly, the Oscar winner and Goop goddess is said to be taking all recent developments well.

"Gwyneth is very happy for Chris, that he has moved on and found someone else," a source tells E! News. "Their split has been remarkably amiable and they both just want the best for one another."

True story, the parents of 10-yearold Apple and 8-year-old Moses have continued to log plenty of hours as a family of four since they announced in March that they were "consciously uncoupling" after 10 years of marriage.

Moreover, Gwyneth "can see why Jennifer is a good match for Chris," our source adds. "Chris is very drawn to her personality, and ambition and talent. There are actually some amazing similarities between Jennifer and Gwyneth and how they view life and career, and so Gwyneth knows that ultimately Jennifer has the power to make Chris happy in the long term.

"And that's all Gwyneth wants for Chris," the insider reiterates. "They might not be a couple anymore, but they will always be co-parents and best friends."

Martin and Lawrence, who we've heard have been seeing each other since June, visited the Wolffer Estate Vineyard In New York earlier this month, just a few days before J.Law's birthday

Maybe it doesn't hurt that Gwyneth appears to be moving forward as well, having been spotted on several occasions with Glee and American Horror Story co-creator Brad Falchuk.

"They are taking it slow, but it is very stable and secure and she is happy," our source says about Gwyneth and Brad. "They are not together all the time, they are both busy and at times are on opposite coasts but they are truly compatible. They are much more serious that people realize."

One day, that date night photo op will come, surely.

But now...the world just waits for Chris to accept Gwyneth's Ice Bucket Challenge, which she extended on Wednesday while looking fit and fab in a bikini.
