Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin Announce Separation

Kevin Mazur/Getty Images for J/P Haitian Relief Organization(NEW YORK) -- Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are separating.

The actress, 41, and the Coldplay frontman, 37, announced on her Goop blog that they have split after more than a decade of marriage.

"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," she wrote in a post titled "Conscious Uncoupling."

"We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," she added.

In September, Paltrow, told ABC's Good Morning America that hers was not always an easy marriage and to combat their "big ups and downs," she and Martin "laugh it out."

"So far we're sticking it out," she added.

However, Paltrow and Martin, who have two children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7, will continue to be close for the sake of their family, she said.

"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been," the post continued. "We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

After posting a photo of the two of them in happier times, they signed it, "Love, Gwyneth & Chris."
