Chris Martin's wife enjoys hanging out with famous couple

Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed she’s so close to Jay-Z and Beyoncé Knowles that her kids treat them like members of the family.

The actress has two children – Apple, 8, and Moses, 6 – with Coldplay frontman husband Chris Martin, 36, and they enjoy spending time with their famous friends.

Jay is like a big brother figure to me,’ says Gwyneth, 40.

He has a very calming and mature energy. He is an amazing force in our life – the kids call him Uncle Jay and Beyoncé, Auntie B.’

Gwyneth admits she’s given parenting advice to Beyoncé, 31, after the Crazy In Love singer gave birth to her first child Blue Ivy Carter last year.

I was a mum before B so I suppose I may have passed on some advice,’ the actress tells You Magazine.

But I have learnt so much from her, too. She is gorgeous, very feminine, very clever in that she knows how to be powerful and yet demure.

And their baby Blue Ivy is totally delish. She’s made me very broody.’
