Since finalizing her divorce from Coldplay front-man Chris Martin, Gwyneth Paltrow has kept a pretty low profile. The actress finally made an appearance on Saturday when she was spotted for the first time since she allegedly made her divorce from Martin final. The 43-year-old stepped out to drop her two children, Apple, 11, and Moses, 9, off at a neighbor’s house for a party in the ritzy Pacific Palisades area of L.A.
Gwyneth looked lovely as always while makeup free and dressed casually in a white T-shirt that was tucked into a denim skirt, as Daily Mail shares. A cable knit sweater was wrapped around her shoulders to complement the look.
The gorgeous Iron Man star was spotted walking her kids to the house at which the party took place, and then she returned to her car.
The finalizing of Paltrow and Martin’s divorce falls at the two-year mark since the two announced their split. Gwyneth announced the split via her Goop website, on which she wrote that she and Martin were “consciously uncoupling” after 10 years of marriage.
The blonde beauty filed for divorce in April of 2015, however, it is being reported that Chris Martin has only now signed off on the papers, which has made it final. A source commented on the longevity of the period between the serving of divorce papers and Martin’s eventual signing, noting that there was no agenda or specific reason that the musician took so long to sign.
“Chris has now signed the divorce papers. There was no underlying reason why he had left them for so long and he was planning to do it eventually.”
As for the relationship the two have now as they continue to co-parent Apple and Moses, the source shares that things are amicable.
“There is no bad blood between him and Gwyneth and they remain very close. As ever, their number one priority is their kids.”
The two will apparently receive joint custody of their two children and will split their assets equally, and as has been reported recently, although the two have remained amicable, sources close to Martin do share that the singer experienced a very difficult time since they went their separate ways in 2014.
Phil Harvey, a Coldplay associate indicated that the singer went through a “very bleak period,” as the Belfast Telegraph shares.
“We were all worried about him – the band, his family. When someone’s really, really low and on their own a lot, as a friend, your mind goes to the worst-case scenario. That period didn’t last for ever, but there was a time when we were all regularly checking in on him, just trying to make sure he wasn’t on his own.”
The singer has since made a number of post-marriage changes, including giving up being a vegetarian. He recently spoke about the divorce, as Daily Mail relayed, sharing that it’s a “weird one” but that it’s a “very wonderful separation-divorce.” Martin also noted that it’s strange because he still enjoys holidays with his ex-wife, adding that he has become better at working through the difficult times.
“You can come at it very aggressively and blame and blame. Or you can put yourself in the garage, so to speak. Take yourself apart and clean off the bits. Reassemble. It’s always out there in the media, but I have a very wonderful separation-divorce. It’s a divorce but it’s a weird one. It’s funny. I don’t think about that word very often- divorce. I don’t see it that way. I see it more like you meet someone, you have some time together and things just move through. I’ve lived a lot of life since then.”
