Why Gwyneth Paltrow is finally moving in with her husband Brad Falchuk after almost a year of being married

Would you call this conscious coupling?
Gwyneth Paltrow is moving in with husband Brad Falchuck after a year of marriage

With Gwyneth Paltrow we’ve come to expect the unexpected.

First, where everyone else separated she and first husband Chris Martin “consciously uncoupled”.

Then, when she married her husband, Brad Falchuk, in September 2018 they held the reception the night before the wedding.

The couple famously took their combined brood of children – Brad’s children, Brody and Isobella, and Gwyneth’s children Apple, 15, and Moses, 13 – with them on their honeymoon – as well as Chris, Gwyneth’s ex. She told The Times that Chris and Brad are “totally friends”.

Then, we found out that the couple continued to live apart after getting married, with Gwyneth sharing with the UK’s Sunday Times that Brad stays over four nights a week. He stays at his house for the three nights a week that he has his children over.

Now, after almost a year of being married the couple are finally moving in together.

Gwyneth told InStyle magazine’s anniversary issue this week: “Married life has been really good. And now we’re moving in together this month. I adore my husband.

“He’s brilliant and deeply kind. I feel like he’s a real equal too. And he pushes me in the best ways. I really like being married. It’s fun.”

The couple had chosen to remain in separate houses for good reason.

The Iron Man actress and Goop founder has previously said that pulling together a blended family isn’t easy.

She said: “I mean, sometimes that piece gets complicated when there are two teenage girls. If you’re not all drinking the same Kool-Aid, it can be tough…

“My stepson, for example, he had a rough beginning with it all, but now he and I have our own space together. I’m not his mother, he’s not my son, but he knows he is very special to me.”

Gwyneth’s friend and intimacy coach, Michaela Boehm, had also encouraged Gwyneth to continue to have her own living space.

Michaela has been previously quoted as saying: “When couples start living together, they ruin the excitement. That’s true for anyone, Hollywood star or regular commoner. Spend time apart. That could be ten minutes at the end of the work day, it could be having separate rooms, or separate houses. Separate houses … do how much time you need.”
