NEW YORK: Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, is splitting from her husband Chris Martin, 37, after 10 years of marriage.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,’’ the couple posted on her website Goop.
The couple, who have two children – Apple (9) and Moses (7) – are in the Bahamas on vacation.
In a statement jointly signed by the couple, they called their decision `conscious uncoupling.’
The couple said, “We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.’’
“We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner.”
