In an article published by the Huffington Post, Gwyneth Paltrow speaks candidly about her divorce to Coldplay front man, Chris Martin, and their efforts to co-parent the two children they share together.

During her keynote interview at the BlogHer conference in New York City on July 18, 2015, Gwyneth says: “It’s’s been hard, and you know, we’ve gone through really difficult times with it but we’ve always said these children are our priority. What that really means is, ‘Even though today, you hate me and you never want to see me again, we’re going to brunch, ’cause it’s Sunday and that’s what we’ll do!’ You know, like, ‘That’s what’s happening!’ The children are our commitment.”

Gwyneth and Chris remain on friendly terms together, and even plan family events together with the children. Gwyneth offers positive comments about Chris as well, saying that “he is a great dad” and that “he is always patient“.

Gwyneth and Chris work together to ease the transition for the children, and to provide them with the love and support from both and mom and a dad.

Bravo! I know that this is not possible in all situations but for couples where there is a possibility to co-parent, this story offers an inspiring example of what is possible when parents are able to put aside past difference, and put the children first.
