Paltrow and the Coldplay frontman, 41, have been open about prioritizing their amicable relationship for the sake of their children since their “conscious uncoupling” in 2014, even showing love for each other on social media.

“Happy birthday my brother,” the Goop founder captioned a snap last month of the foursome. “Thank you for giving me these two.”
