But the famous couple did not break up.
Instead, according to the actress’ statement on her website Goop, the pair simply ‘consciously uncoupled‘.
Ever since, the former couple have remained friends, taking charge of the news cycle by constantly sharing positive updates on their amicable, co-parent relationship.
Most recently, Gwyneth shared that her ex-husband actually came along on her honeymoon alongside her new husband Brad Falchuk.
Speaking to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest on Live with Kelly and Ryan yesterday, the actress opened up about her modern honeymoon.
