Anyone who logged onto Goop on March 25 knows that Gwyneth and Chris’ split was far from normal. But the civilized nature of their breakup even goes beyond a heartfelt note, as the couple reportedly gave gifts to each other before parting ways.
Don’t cry for the end of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, because they seem to be okay with moving on! As their announcement message stated on March 25, the breakup was mutual and civilized, and they’re still going to be family. But actions speak louder than words, and the gifts the couple reportedly gave each other before splitting really prove how extraordinary the separation was.
Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin: Vacation & Gifts Before Separation
When the breakup announcement was posted on Gwyneth’s website goop on March 25, she and Chris weren’t huddled in offices with divorce lawyers — they were enjoying a vacation in the Bahamas with their children Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, according to LaineyGossip. “Going away together may seem unusual but that’s Gwyneth and Chris,” a source said.
The idyllic getaway was just one gift Gwyneth and Chris gave to each other before parting ways — letting one another enjoy a final trip as a family. But Chris also took it a step further. The Coldplay singer reportedly gave his ex a special gift to mark the new stage of their lives — a painting of a bird in flight by Mila Furstova. (Chris has always been heavy-handed when it comes to metaphors.)
The humble, civilized nature of the breakup is so Gwyneth and Chris can keep their priorities in order — they want to be able to keep focusing on their kids and remaining a family, the source also stated.
