They tied the knot in a star-studded ceremony three months ago, but Gwyneth Paltrow has yet to move in with her TV producer hubby Brad Falchuk.
Opening up about the newlywed couple’s surprise living arrangements to WSJ magazine the Oscar-winning actress revealed that the decision centred around her desire to put the needs of Brad’s children first.
‘I’ve never been a stepmother before. I don’t know how to do it.
‘We are still doing it in our own way. With teenage kids, you’ve got to tread lightly. It’s pretty intense, the teenage thing.’
Brad shares children Isabella and Brody with his ex-wife Suzanne Bukinik, with whom he divorced in 2013. Gwyneth also shares children Apple, 14, and Moses, 12, with ex-husband Chris Martin, who she divorced in 2016.
The Iron Man star has already proved she has a handle on co-parenting with her Coldplay frontman ex. She’s previously revealed that he still has a room at her house, and the pair continue to enjoy a friendly relationship even spending a sun-soaked spell on a luxury yacht in Cannes last year.
And more recently Gwyneth and Brad also reportedly spent Thanksgiving with Chris and his girlfriend actress Dakota Johnson, along with Apple and Moses.
Speaking about the family occasion, a source told People magazine: ‘They’re a total modern family and had a great time celebrating together.’
But the challenges of a blended family is new territory for the 46-year-old, who previously questioned whether she’d even walk down the aisle for a second time.
She told Marie Claire: ‘For a while, I thought, I don’t know if I’d ever do it again.
‘I have my kids, what’s the point? And then I met this incredible man, who made me think, no, this person is worth making this commitment to. I’m very much the marrying kind.
‘I love being a wife. I love making a home.’
Gwyneth owns a home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of LA, while Brad owns a home in Malibu. Both addresses are in California and just a short distance away from each other so we’re sure Gwyneth and Brad will be getting lots of quality time together.
We’ll be keeping our eyes peeled for that ‘first home together’ announcement.
