Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announce separation
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," the post reads on the actress's website.
"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."
The famous pair celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary last December and have two children together, Apple (9) and Moses (7).
In the online post, the couple maintain that they "always will be a family".
"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."
