The 48-year-old Sliding Doors star was married to the 44-year-old Coldplay frontman for 13 years when they divorced in 2016.
Speaking recently on Shop TODAY with Jill Martin — of which there is no relation to Paltrow’s ex-husband — the Goop founder said that her and Martin get along well, as they co-parent their two children: 17-year-old daughter, Apple, and 15-year-old son, Moses.
“I mean, it’s funny. He was over here yesterday,” Paltrow said of her ex-husband.
“And [Apple] came through, and she’s like, you know, she’s taller than me now.
“[Chris and I] just, like, looked at each other. We were like, ‘How did this go by so quickly?'”
“He’s like my brother. You know, he’s my family,” the Iron Man actress said.
Paltrow and Martin met when his band, Coldplay, was on tour in Los Angeles in 2002. They got married in 2003, and “consciously uncoupled” in 2014 before finalising their divorce in 2016.
“I love him,” she added.
“And I’m so grateful to him for giving me these kids. It worked out well…. You know, it really did, I have to say.”
Martin, meanwhile, has been dating actress Dakota Johnson, 31, for the past three years.
The foursome are friendly and often spend time together.
