Despite being divorced for almost a decade, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin still get along and amicably parent their two children, Apple and Moses. In the latest issue of People, the Goop founder gushed over the Coldplay frontman’s co-parenting abilities, though his work with the band often prevents him from being home.


“He has this sweet, childlike spirit, and I love that he will be like, ‘Let’s go jump in the ocean’ when it’s 58 degrees,’ or, ‘Let’s go to this weird guitar store.’ He always wants to do these fun adventures with them and activities,” the actress shared.

Paltrow further commented on Martin’s personality, noting that he “has a real sweetness. And so he brings that to the way that he parents them. … He’s sort of gone a lot, he’s on the road a lot, but he brings — it’s almost like he comes and sprinkles fairy dust.”

Paltrow and Martin married in December 2003 and remained together until 2014. The pair announced their separation in a joint statement about their mutual decision to “consciously uncouple.” In Paltrow’s latest interview with People, published on Thursday (Nov. 16), she revealed that she and the Coldplay singer spoke with friends and family members that have been through divorce, and used those experiences — such as the parents not sitting with each other at graduations, or not coming inside to pick the kids up — to navigate their own separation.

“Those were the things that really hurt the kids,” Paltrow explained. “And so Chris and I just said, ‘Let’s just never do that and let’s try to get through the hard part of this and remember our friendship.’” The 51-year-old said she and Martin are successfully able to do that, and as a result, “he’s like my family.”
