Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk are giving love a second chance! The actress and “Glee”, “American Horror Story” co-creator officially announced their engagement yesterday in a joint statement on “Good Morning America”.
Prior to their relationship, Paltrow was married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin and Falchuk was married to TV producer Suzanne Bukinik. Both have children with their first partners; Paltrow and Martin have 13-year old daughter Apple and 11-year old son Moses while Falchuk and Bukinik have Brody and Isabella. Falchuk and Bukinik divorced in 2013 after 19 years of marriage, and Paltrow and Martin followed suit a year later after 11 years of marriage.
Paltrow and Falchuk met on the set of “Glee” when she guest starred as Holly Holliday between 2010 and 2014. The pair began dating in 2014, but didn’t publicize their relationship until a birthday in April 2015. Rumors of their possible engagement circulated as early as November last year, stating that the couple has actually been engaged for a year. Many speculated the confirmation of the rumor after Paltrow posted a photo of Martin and Falchuk on her Instagram with the quirky caption, “Sunday brunch #modernfamily”.
The couple shared a joint statement on “Good Morning America” on January 8, US time, “We feel incredibly lucky to have come together at this juncture in our lives when our collective successes and failures can serve as building blocks for a healthy and happy relationship.” They announced the news ahead of the pair’s cover story on Paltrow’s lifestyle magazine “Goop” where they spoke about their love and trivia about their relationship.
What About Chris Martin?
On the other hand, Martin is still swimming in the pool. Ever since their divorce, he’s been linked to actresses Jennifer Lawrence, Dakota Johnson, and Annabelle Wallis, and TV presenter Alexa Chung. Tabloids began publishing stories about his engagement to Wallis in 2016 after she was spotted with a diamond ring on her finger. Nothing ever came out of that story and the rumor eventually died down.
A wedding date is yet to be announced. Who knows, Paltrow and Falchuk might pull of a secret wedding somewhere in Euorpe? Congratulations to the two!
