Iron Man star loves family life

After 10 years of marriage Gwyneth Paltrow is glad she tied the knot with Chris Martin.

The Iron Man star says picking Chris, 36, as her life partner is the best thing she’s ever done.

[My best decision in life so far has been] to marry my husband,’ says Gwyneth, 40.

Gwynnie also credits the couple’s two children – Apple, 9, and Moses, 7 – as her greatest achievements and loves nothing more than hanging out with them.

I was really lucky to have two healthy children, and I enjoy the process of raising then and watching these amazing human beings start to come out and be themselves,’ the mum-of-two tells Good Housekeeping Magazine.

[My ideal Saturday morning would be] sleeping in and then having a really lazy day with the family, cooking and laughing and hanging out.’

Despite her idyllic family life Gwyneth recently confessed that her relationship with Chris hasn’t always been easy.

She told Glamour Magazine: It’s hard being married.

You go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple. I asked my dad once, “How did you and Mum stay married for 33 years?”

And he said, “Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time”. And I think that’s what happens.

When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person’s saying, “Come on, we can do this”, you carry on.’
