Talk about a modern family!
Chris Martin will always be a member of Gwyneth Paltrow's family, even if his role within it has since changed. In Glamour's March issue, the actress explains how their "conscious uncoupling" in 2014 changed the dynamics of their relationship. "Isn't that the ideal? Well, the ideal is to stay married. But if you can't stay married, wouldn't the ideal be that you could still be a family and you could put aside your own stuff long enough to explore—what is this new family and who am I in it? And Chris is a great ex-husband 'cause he's a very, very willing partner in how to do that," says Paltrow, who married the musician in 2003. "We're constantly putting aside our own stuff and trying to reimagine something that we don't personally have an example for."
Paltrow pats herself and Martin on the back for doing "what's best for the kids" above all else. "We put a lot of thought into how to do it so that the damage would be minimized," she says.
