Relationships don’t always work out and things only get more complicated when there are children involved. However, just because you didn’t have a “happily ever after” story doesn’t mean you can’t both be there for your kids. Sure, co-parenting isn’t easy and comes with its share of challenges but it’s not impossible. Just take a look at these former celebrity couples who are crushing co-parenting.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin
The world was shocked when actress Gwyneth Paltrow announced that she would be “consciously uncoupling” from husband Chris Martin in 2016 after 13 years of marriage. The couple has two children together, daughter Apple and son Moses, and both Paltrow and Martin wanted to ensure that they would be put first no matter what.
Understandably, it’s hard at times to smile and spend time with someone you no longer want to be with but as Paltrow put it, you do it for the kids. She says it all comes down to accountability and understanding that every relationship is 50-50. Their ultimate goal was to maintain the family even though they were not a couple anymore and they’ve managed to do just that.
