Gwyneth Paltrow has been living on cloud nine ever since she fell in love with her second husband, Brad Falchuk. If you’re not completely familiar with a timeline of the couple’s relationship, the Goop founder and the Glee producer’s romantic love story goes all the way back to 2014.
Gwyn and Brad first met on the set of Glee. At the time, the Shakespeare in Love actress was recently divorced from her ex-husband, Chris Martin, whom she wed in 2003. The former pair announced their separation in March 2014, while Brad also called it quits with his ex-wife, Suzanne Bukinik, in 2013.
Although sparks were flying between the Hollywood stars, they remained tight-lipped about the status of their relationship. Much of Gwyn and Brad’s romance was kept out of the spotlight until they stepped out at an event for friend Robert Downey Jr. the following year in 2015.
The beauty guru and the TV creator quietly dated for the next few years until the handsome hunk popped the question in early 2018. Later that year in September, the Goop Lab star and the American Horror Story producer tied the knot in a private wedding in New York.
Reflecting back on her journey to finding true love, Gwyn — who is the proud mom of daughter Apple and son Moses — said she actually considers her union with Brad to be her first true marriage. Though the actress doesn’t regret the time she spent with Chris, she pointed out the huge difference between their romances.
“I had two typical types of relationships. One where I was constantly chasing and trying to win someone over, and one where I was put off by the person’s capacity for the relationship — and those relationships were very short-lived,” she told People in 2018.
However, everything changed the moment she met Brad. “For the first time, I feel like I’m in an adult relationship that is sometimes very uncomfortable,” she explained. “Because he sort of demands a certain level of intimacy and communication that I haven’t been held to before.”
Despite having to make some minor adjustments, Gwyn said she couldn’t feel more “grateful” to have found love with the film director. She’s also elated about giving her children stepsiblings, as Brad is the dad of his two kids, Isabella and Brody, with his former spouse of nine years.
“I feel so lucky,” she gushed to Glamour U.K. weeks after their wedding. “It’s different to be in your mid-forties; do it again and bring all your experience, your pain, your happiness, suffering — everything. It’s actually very heartening, I feel very optimistic!”
