Memories, light the corners of my mind … oh, where’s Barbra Streisand when you need her! Just weeks after Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced their “conscious uncoupling,” the Iron Man star and Goop founder took to Twitter to share an adorable throwback photo of herself and her two kids — Moses, 8, and Apple, 9 — from a family vacation. We can hear the awws from here.
“#tbt #luckiestmomever #exumas,” Gwyneth captioned her photo, which at the time of this post, garnered 1,455 favorites. This snapshot is actually from the much-discussed Bahamas trip Gwyneth and Chris took with their kids right as they announced their separation. We. Can’t. Handle. It.
According to a source, the couple escaped to the Bahamas just before their joined statement hit Gwyneth’s well-known blog in order to dodge the media crazy to come. Gwyneth and Chris also took their two children along for some much-needed family time, full of beach jaunts and horseback riding.
“When only Gwyneth and Chris are together, there appears to be some tension," an insider told Us Weekly. "But when the kids are with them, they appear to be one big happy family with no cares in the world."
It’s no surprise that the former couple are making such strong strides in raising their kids together. After all, they have vowed to co-parent despite their separation.
As a friend of Gwyneth and Chris recently told E! Online, “They’re two grown-ups. They’re best friends. Most important are the kids and they will continue to co-parent. They’re in a great place. They tried, but know this is a better way for them to be. They still love each other, but they realize it’s best not to be a couple anymore.”
Even though it pains us to see them apart, it seems like both Gwyneth and Chris are doing just fine and we wish them all the best!
