Pal­trow’s un­usual hon­ey­moon

Pretoria News - - LIFESTYLE - | DAILY MAIL

SHE is ever ea­ger to present her­self as the epit­ome of trendy mod­ern liv­ing.

So for Gwyneth Pal­trow, go­ing on hon­ey­moon with only her new hus­band Brad Falchuk for com­pany was al­ways go­ing to be far too con­ven­tional. Hence, she took her ex-hus­band Chris Martin along too.

The Cold­play front man, 41, who “con­sciously un­cou­pled” from the 46-year-old Hol­ly­wood ac­tress in 2014, joined her, their chil­dren, TV pro­ducer Falchuk, 47, his chil­dren and a few friends for the post­wed­ding cel­e­bra­tion in the Mal­dives over Christ­mas.

Pal­trow, who runs the life­style brand and web­site Goop, posted sev­eral pic­tures from the trop­i­cal hon­ey­moon on­line – al­though none fea­tured Martin. Pal­trow was keen to ex­plain why, rather than have a few ro­man­tic days alone, she and Falchuk had wanted to take her en­tire ex­tended fam­ily.

“We had a big fam­ily hon­ey­moon over Christ­mas,” Pal­trow told US chat show Live With Kelly And Ryan.

“My new hus­band and his chil­dren, my chil­dren, my ex-hus­band, our best fam­ily friends. A very mod­ern hon­ey­moon.”

There were no ten­sions, just “good con­ver­sa­tion and lots of kids”, she said.

Pal­trow said she in­cluded Martin in the In­dian Ocean hol­i­day for the ben­e­fit of their chil­dren, Ap­ple, 14, and Moses, 12, who wanted to be able to spend time with both their par­ents to­gether.

“We just wanted to min­imise the pain for the kids. We just want to see their par­ents around a din­ner ta­ble, ba­si­cally, so we try to keep that,” she said.

Pal­trow had sur­prised fans just be­fore Christ­mas by shar­ing a photo of the stock­ings hang­ing up along her fire­place. Along­side those for her­self, her chil­dren and Falchuk was one for Martin.

She mar­ried Falchuk in Septem­ber at her home in the Hamp­tons.
