Gwyneth Paltrow feels “very lucky” to fall in love after going through her divorce from Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

Paltrow, who split from Martin in 2014 after a decade of marriage, got married to Brad Falchuk in 2018.

The Goop businesswoman explained in an interview with Heat magazine that getting re-married was a welcomed surprise.

“It was a wonderful surprise. I didn’t necessarily think that falling in love again would happen for me,” she said.

“I think when it happens to you when you’re a bit older, you place a value and an importance on it that you don’t when you’re in your 20s, because at that age you don’t know the difference yet. I’ve been very lucky.”

The actress also opened up about spending more time with her and Martin’s children at home, Apple and Moses, because of the coronavirus pandemic.

“I was worried it would be very difficult for my teenagers because we’re all so used to having our lives and our freedoms the way we have them and for teenagers to be told, OK, no going out, no parties, no skateboarding in the skate park, anything like that. It’s quite a change.”

She continued: “They have been so wonderful during this time. They really took the lead about being responsible with their schoolwork and what I loved most was the long, lingering dinner conversations we had every night.”
