One of the most glamorous -- and seemingly most stable -- couples in show biz is breaking up. Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her rock star husband, Chris Martin of Coldplay , have announced that they are calling it quits on their 10-year marriage.
In a statement posted on Goop.com , Paltrow's lifestyle website, the couple writes, "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. 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."
"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been," they continue. "We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time."
The statement finishes by saying, "We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
Martin and Paltrow married in December of 2003. They have two children: daughter Apple and son Moses.
Most recently, Paltrow has been seen guest-starring on the 100th episode of Glee; she's also featured in the Iron Man movies opposite Robert Downey Jr. Martin will release a new album with Coldplay, Ghost Stories , on May 19. He's scheduled to appear on The Voice as an adviser starting March 31.
