The Hollywood actor famously “consciously uncoupled” from Martin in 2014 after 11 years of marriage. They have two children together: Apple, 17, and Moses, 15.
“He’s like my brother,” Paltrow told Shop Today with Jill Martin, via Vanity Fair. “You know, he’s my family. I love him.”
She continued: “I’m so grateful to him for giving me these kids. It worked out well... you know, it really did, I have to say.”
Paltrow told Anna Faris on her podcast in March that she had previously “never wanted to get divorced”.
However, she added: “I have learned more about myself through that process than I could have imagined.”
“And because I focused on accountability, I was then able to find the most amazing man and build something that I’ve never had before with Brad [Falchuk], my husband.”
Paltrow married Falchuk, a TV writer, director and producer known for his work on Pose, Glee, and American Horror Story, in 2018. Martin is in a relationship with Fifty Shades of Grey star Dakota Johnson.
Martin recently released a new single with Coldplay, “Higher Power”, ahead of their next album.
