Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin broke hearts around the country when they announced that they would be separating after 11 years of marriage earlier this week. Until now, the actress has remained mum about the decision to split.
On Friday Gwyneth Paltrow took to her lifestyle blog website Goop on Friday morning to reveal how the couple was faring through the public announcement of the split.
“Our moms were raised by depression-era ladies who used a single tea bag for two cups of tea and never met a leftover they didn’t eat,” Paltrow wrote in the post titled “One Bird, Three Meals”. “This issue of three delicious chicken recipes is in honor of our grandmothers, who taught us the good old-fashioned art of not wasting a scrap.”
She added at the end, “P.S. CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many.” The actress ended the post with a heart icon.
Gwyneth Paltrow used the same blog earlier this week to announce the pair had split on Tuesday evening. “It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” she wrote. “We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.”
The former couple along with their two children, Apple and Moses, jetted off to the Bahamas following the statement, most likely to take a much needed escape from the curious eyes of the paparazzi who have been hounding them since the split announcement was made. They reportedly retuned a home on Eleuthra Island which runs for $5,000 to $6,000 a week to lease. Here’s to hoping the family is able to find some much needed time to rest and reflect.
