Well, goop. Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have announced they’re parting ways after more than a decade of marriage.
The two announced what they’re calling a “conscious uncoupling” via Gwyneth’s well-known blog on March 25.
“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” the post reads, our eyes already welling. “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.”
While the two didn’t comment on specific reasons they’re splitting, rumors have swirled in the past months that Gwyneth may have cheated on Chris.
The beauty of this breakup announcement (which you can read in full below) only makes the split all the sadder as the Coldplay frontman and the Academy Award-winning actress go on to explain their top priority: parenting their two children, daughter Apple and son Moses.
“We are parents first and foremost,” they write after explaining how “in many ways we are closer than we have ever been.” The two ask for privacy as they navigate how to “consciously uncouple and coparent.”
Excuse us as we go play “Fix You” on repeat until our eyes swell shut from the crying.
