The actress has been very open about her divorce from Martin and how it was an extremely ‘terrible’ and ‘painful’ experience.
But in the years following the split, and the responsibilities of co-parenting daughter Apple, 17, and son Moses, 15, at the forefront of their priorities, the former couple have become close with one another in a familial way.
‘He’s like my brother. You know, he’s my family,’ Paltrow explained before adding, ‘I love him.’
The Goop founder also shared how she just spent some quality time with Martin earlier this week; the former couple are pictured in January 2014, two months before they made their now famous ‘conscious uncoupling’ announcement back in March 2014
She went on to share about how her ex-husband has given her the ultimate gift in her lifetime.
‘And I’m so grateful to him for giving me these kids. It worked out well… You know, it really did, I have to say,’ she gushed.
Paltrow also revealed that she and Martin spend a lot of time together, due to their teenaged kids. In fact, the Grammy-winning musician has even spent quality time with his ex-wife’s new husband, Brad Falchuk.
‘I mean, it’s funny. He was over here yesterday. And [Apple] came through and she’s like, you know, she’s taller than me now. We just looked at each other. We were like, “How did this go by so quickly?”‘ she said in reference Martin and the time that has past while raising their kids.

They would reconnect in the ladder part of 2014, after her split from Martin, and eventually go public with their relationship in April 2015.
The couple would tie-the-knot in September 2018.
Paltrow’s affinity for Martin’s girlfriend of the past few years, actress Dakota Johnson, has also helped with making their blended family life even happier.
