Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin split

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have confirmed they have split up.

The Oscar-winning actress and the Coldplay frontman, who tied the knot in 2003 and have daughter Apple, nine, and son Moses, seven, together, announced their separation on her lifestyle website GOOP.com on Tuesday (03.25.14).

In a post titled "Conscious Uncoupling," the former couple wrote: "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate.

"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.

"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been."

Appealing for privacy because they are "parents first and foremost," they added: "We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and co-parent, we will be able to continue in the same manner. Love, Gwyneth & Chris."

News of the couple's separation comes just six months after rumors swirled that Vanity Fair magazine was planning to publish a "takedown" piece about the 41-year-old actress, allegedly accusing her of having an affair with supermodel Elle MacPherson's billionaire husband Jeff Soffer.

Editor Graydon Carter later claimed the piece had been overblown and decided not to publish it because he thought the final product wouldn't live up to the hype.

Last year, the blonde beauty also admitted she and the 'Trouble' hitmaker, 37, who moved to Los Angeles from London last year, had gone through "terrible times" together in the past and that marriage was "hard" work.

She said: "It's hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We're the same as any couple. I asked my dad once, 'How did you and Mum stay married for 33 years?' And he said, 'Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time'. And I think that's what happens."
