Gwyneth Paltrow and new husband take kids, her ex and her ex’s girlfriend on ‘family honeymoon’

Gwyneth Paltrow the actress, has revealed that her ex-husband Chris Martin joined her and her new husband on an extended “honeymoon” to the Maldives.
The Oscar-winning actress, who married film producer Brad Falchuk on Sept 29 in the Hamptons, jetted off to Italy with her new husband immediately after the wedding.
But she then spent Christmas on what she called “a big family honeymoon” in the Maldives.
Paltrow, 46, and Falchuk, 47, were accompanied by Isabella and Brody, his teenage children from his first marriage to Suzanne Bukinik, the television producer of the long-running American sitcom According to Jim.

Paltrow’s two children, 14-year-old Apple and Moses, 12, joined them – as did their Coldplay frontman father, and his girlfriend of a year, Fifty Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson.
“It was a very modern honeymoon,” Paltrow said. “We had a great time.”
Paltrow and Martin have remained close, frequently going on holiday together and gathering for family celebrations. The actress turned entrepreneur and Martin, 41, announced in 2014 that they were “consciously uncoupling” after 10 years of marriage.
Paltrow told a U.S. chat show on Wednesday that she and Martin wanted to minimize the pain of divorce for their children. “They just want to see their parents around the dinner table, basically, so we try to keep that,” she said.
On Dec 4 the Wall Street Journal reported that Falchuk and Paltrow were not living together, with Paltrow saying that the couple were “still doing it in our own way”.
She added: “With teenage kids, you’ve got to tread lightly. It’s pretty intense, the teenage thing.”
Paltrow spends most of her time in Los Angeles, where Falchuk is based and where she lives close to the Santa Monica offices of her lifestyle company, Goop. Martin reportedly keeps a room at her home.
