Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are leveling up in their surprising new romance — find out the serious next step they’ve taken in their relationship! Will Gwyneth Paltrow approve?
This summer’s coupling of Jennifer Lawrence, 24, and Chris Martin, 37, was a pretty surprising pairing. However, it’s no fling — judging by the most recent huge step they’ve taken in their relationship, the two are getting more and more serious with each other. Now we’re just left to wonder — would Chris’ ex and the mother of his children, Gwyneth Paltrow, 41, approve?
Chris Martin & Jennifer Lawrence’s Relationship Is Serious: She Met His Friends
Jennifer has met Chris’ friends — this is a huge step in any relationship, especially given Chris’ serious relationship experience! He wouldn’t introduce just any woman to his friends.
Chris’ friends “welcomed her warmly” during a dinner at the Chateau Marmont on Sept. 11, reports E! News.
“They seem very comfortable in each other’s company — and happy!” an eyewitness source revealed to E! “It doesn’t seem like it’s a new relationship. They seem super affectionate and at ease with each other.”
The Coldplay frontman was spotted rubbing Jennifer’s back, and even holding her hand. The two “were the center of attention,” says E!‘s source. “They seem super cute together.”
Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Martin: Does Gwyneth Paltrow Approve?
Considering that Jennifer has met Chris’ friends, when will she meet his ex?
Chris and Gwyneth still enjoy an amicable relationship as they co-parent Moses, 8, and Apple, 10 — if the new couple continue on this road, it’s only a matter of time before she officially meets Gwyneth and the kids, if she hasn’t already.
However, “Gwyneth is very happy for Chris,” says another source at E! “Their split has been remarkably amiable and they both just want the best for one another.”
We’re so glad that Gwyneth seems to approve — Chris certainly deserves to be happy, and Jennifer definitely seems to be the one making him feel that way!
