Gwyneth Paltrow states it was a "fantastic surprise" falling in love after her divorce. Gwyneth Paltrow discovered falling in love after her divorce to be a "fantastic surprise". The 47-year-old actress split from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin in 2014 after a years of marital relationship and she feels "really lucky" that she's now discovered joy with Brad Falchuk – who she wed in September 2018 – as she didn't anticipate it. She informed HEAT! publication:"It was a wonderful surprise.
I didn't necessarily think that falling in love again would happen for me."I think when it happens to you when you're a bit older, you place a value and an importance on it that you don't when you're in your 20s, because at that age you don't know the difference yet. I've been very lucky." On the other hand, Gwyneth applauded her and Chris' kids, Apple, 16, and Moses, 14, for how well they have adapted to having to stay at home over the last couple of months due to the pandemic and has enjoyed investing more quality time with them. She stated:"At first I was thinking, 'Oh my goodness, what do we do?'"I was worried it would be very difficult for my teenagers because we're all so used to having our lives and our freedoms the way we have them and for teenagers to be told, OK, no going out, no parties, no skateboarding in the skate park, anything like that. It's quite a change."But honestly they have been so wonderful during this time. They really took the lead about being responsible with their schoolwork and what I loved most was the long, lingering dinner conversations that we had every night."I'm very proud of them for how they've dealt with this." The 'Politician' star wishes to instil the exact same values into her children that she herself was raised with. She included: "I was raised in a very close family where there was a lot of emphasis on integrity and honesty and laughter and good conversation and food. I am endeavouring to bring all those values to my children's lives."
