Call it conscious uncoupling as actress Gwyneth Paltrow and singer Chris Martin are all set to split. The two have been married for around 11 years now.

“It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate,” the twosome wrote on Paltrow’s web site. They said they were working hard for almost one year; some of the things were together, while some were detached. It was just to see how things shape up for them.

The couple has further said that, they did come to a conclusion that they do still love each other, but that they will be separating. The couple said that they will still be a family and will remain closer in more ways than one.

The Coldplay singer Chris Martin married actress Gwyneth Paltrow in the year 2003. They have two children from their marriage. Apple 9 is the older of the two, while the younger one is Moses, who is 7.

Speaking about their children, the couple said their first priority is being the parents for their two wonderful kids. That’s why they say that they want their privacy to be respected at these hard times in their lives.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are one of the high-profile couples of Hollywood. Paltrow is 41 years Oscar award-winning actress, while Martin is known for Coldplay.

As a couple they have visited various places together. However, they have hardly posed for the cameras on red carpets.
