From ‘consciously uncoupling’ with Chris Martin to jade ‘eggs’ for better orgasms - Gwyneth Paltrow has never exactly towed the line when it comes to relationships.
So its little surprise that the46-year-old actress doesn’t live full-time with second husband Brad Falchuk.
The Goop founder told The Sunday Times’ Style that their unconventional sleeping arrangement is a deliberate decision made with the blessing of her intimacy coach.
They spend four nights a week together at their marital home with her kids, daughter Apple and son Moses, who she shares with ex-husband, Chris Martin.
For the remaining three nights they live apart - the Hollywood producer, 48, lives at another home with his children, son Brody and daughter Isabella, whom he shares with first wife Suzanne Bukinik.
Gwyneth said the set-up is the envy of all her friends.
“Oh, all my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing,” she revealed.
Her intimacy coach, she explained, says the built-in weekly separation gives their marriage “polarity”.
The couple married last September in a beautiful ceremony in the Hamptons.
Gwyneth split from her first husband Chris in 2014, but they are on good terms and regularly holiday together with their teenage kids.
Chris has been dating fellow actress Dakota Johnson since 2017.
Shortly after Gwyneth and Brad’s wedding, both couples went on a “family honeymoon” to the Maldives with the children.
“Chris is family and Brad and he, they’re like, totally friends,” Gwyneth explained.
She described Dakota as “a fantastic woman” and revealed, “I adore her”.
In March, the mum-of-two posted a happy birthday message on Instagram to her husband of six months, Brad.
Beside a smiling selfie of the couple, she wrote: “You are my rock, my true north, my favorite person to eat with, to travel with.
“You are a true friend. You want only what is for the highest good.
“You always help me see what I can’t. I am so happy you were born.”
She added: “I love you so much.”
