Relationship opportunities

Yes, mum-of-two Gwyneth was previously married to Coldplay frontman, Chris Martin, but since their conscious uncoupling – then divorce – back in July 2016, she’s moved on and found love again.

It seems she’s ready to challenge herself and commit to “forever” with her now fiancé Brad, but The Royal Tenenbaums star admits to feeling a little bit nervous about revisiting the whole marriage thing a second time.

“Personally, at midlife, I have tried to accept how complex romantic love can be,” Gwyneth explained in the Goop story.

“I have decided to give it a go again, not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that (terrifyingly) are made possible by intimacy.”

Relationship opportunities are the new #relationshipgoals, in Gwyneth’s book. Soul-stretching, perhaps the new yoga? You heard it here first.

Workplace romance

Rumours had apparently been swirling about the couple possibly tying the knot down the track, so this news is confirmation of what many suspected.

Brad and Gwyneth met on the set of TV show Glee back in 2014. Brad is co-creator of the series, Gwyneth starring as Holly Holiday in the show. Their workplace romance obviously blossomed.

Gwyneth and former husband Chris appear to be coparenting 13-year-old Apple and 11-year-old Moses in earnest, since their split. It’s been a steep learning curve, the actor says.

“I wanted to turn my divorce into a positive,” she recently explained.

“What if I didn’t blame the other person for anything, and held myself 100% accountable? What if I checked my own s**t at the door and put my children first? And reminded myself about the things about my ex-husband that I love, and fostered the friendship? What I put myself through to get there was the most difficult thing I’ve ever done in my life.”

There’s no doubt that we’ll be hearing a lot more about blended families, as Brad takes his place in their gang. While Gwyneth can prove to be a bit much at times, with all her sex dust and moonbeams and palaver, you have to admit her take on modern families (below) looks like the very best thing for the kids involved.

Congrats to the happy couple!
