Earlier today the star-coupling of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin confirmed in a letter to fans that on Paltrow’s Goop blog, that they have decided to separate.

It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. 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, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. 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.

Chris Martin, the lead singer of Coldplay and actor Gwyneth Paltrow married back in December 2013 and have two children together named Apple and Moses.
