Gwyneth Paltrow says she and her fellow celeb moms often get together for what are surely the world’s most stylish play dates.

“I have friends like Stella McCartney or Madonna, and very often our children get together to play,” Paltrow, 34, tells Spanish Vogue. “Although usually we leave them in bed and stay to drink a glass of wine.”

The actress and husband Chris Martin are parents to Apple, who turns 3 in May, and 11-month-old Moses.

Madonna and Guy Ritchie have Lourdes, 10, and Rocco, 6, and are in the process of adopting David, 17 months; and McCartney and husband Alasdhair Willis have a son, Miller, 2, and a 3-month-old daughter, Bailey.

Paltrow took the last few years off of making movies to focus on raising her kids, and recently called being a housewife “amazing.”

And she still has a sense of awe when it comes to her children. “When I look at my daughter’s skin, it’s the most beautiful and perfect in the world,” she tells the magazine.

“You lose that with age, of course. But as you grow older you gain character, wisdom and beauty in your soul. A mature woman knows herself, and that is sexy.”

Although she’s said she’s looking forward to going back to work, she’ll always enjoy being at home with her kids and her Coldplay frontman husband. “The house is always full of music,” she says, “whether it is Chris playing or not, and the children love it.”
