Gwyneth Paltrow opens up about her unconventional living arrangement with husband Brad Falchuk.
The Goop founder and the Glee producer don’t live together full time. Falchuk stays in his own nearby home to live with his children from a previous marriage. In an interview with the Sunday Times, Paltrow got candid and real about her marriage saying:
“Oh, all my married friends say that the way we live sounds ideal and we shouldn’t change a thing.”

It’s your birthday, but it’s really feels like you are the gift. Not just to me, and to @izzyfalchuk and Brody, but to all of us who are fortunate enough to know and love you. You are my rock, my true north, my favorite person to eat with, to travel with. You are a true friend. You want only what is for the highest good. You always help me see what I can’t. I am so happy you were born @bradfalchuk I love you so much. ❤️
The actress also expressed her feelings toward co-parenting noting that it isn’t always easy. When asked if she was doing a good job as a stepmom, she says “I have no idea,”
“I mean, sometimes that piece gets complicated when there are two teenage girls. If you’re not all drinking the same Kool-Aid, it can be tough. I do think, though, at the end of the day, everyone wants the same thing, which is to feel love and be accepted.”
Paltrow is a stepmom to Falchuk’s children, Brody and Isabella. While Falchuk co-parents the actress’ daughter Apple and son Moses. Apple and Moses are Paltrow’s children with ex-husband Chris Martin.
The Marvel Cinematic Universe actress continued: “My stepson, for example, he had a rough beginning with it all, but now he and I have our own space together. I’m not his mother, he’s not my son, but he knows he is very special to me.”
Paltrow’s children are in their teens and she has opened about the complexities of re-marrying. She told WSJ magazine last year,
“We are still doing it in our own way. With teenage kids, you’ve got to tread lightly,”
“It’s pretty intense, the teenage thing.” the actress added.
