She’s so happy! In a new interview, Gwyneth Paltrow admitted she feels “lucky” to have recently married her second husband, Brad Falchuk, at age 46 after her first marriage to Chris Martin ended in divorce.
“I feel so lucky and I am so grateful,” she told Glamour UK. “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!”
Gwyneth previously divorced her ex-husband, Chris, in 2014 and at the time, they described their separation as a “conscious uncoupling.” Together, Gwyneth and Chris, 41, are proud parents to their two kids, Apple, 14, and Moses, 12. After they separated, Gwyn decided to focus on her kids, her lifestyle company, Goop, and her relationship with Brad.
In a past Goop Magazine issue, Gwyneth explained why she decided to get married for the second time. “Personally, at midlife, I have tried to accept how complex romantic love can be,” she said. “I have decided to give it a go again, not only because I believe I have found the man I was meant to be with, but because I have accepted the soul-stretching, pattern-breaking opportunities that [terrifyingly] are made possible by intimacy.”
Since Gwyneth met Brad, he has been a very positive impact on her life. The TV producer was able to give Gwyn everything that she was hoping for in a relationship.
“For the first time, I feel like I’m in an adult relationship that is sometimes very uncomfortable — because he sort of demands a certain level of intimacy and communication that I haven’t been held to before,” she previously told People.
