Gwyneth Paltrow & Chris Martin take their kids to school in LA… together?!?

A few months ago, Radar claimed that Gwyneth Paltrow, Chris Martin and their kids were going to make LA their new homebase, after years spent in London. Of course, Gwyneth has always maintained a home in NYC, and she’s owned homes in LA too, but Goop and Chris always claimed that London was their real home. Well, as it turns out, I think Radar was actually right. I think Goop and Chris have pretty much relocated to LA, at least for now. Apple and Moses Martin now go to school in LA, and these are photos of Gwyneth and Chris walking their kids to school on Friday. SHOCKING. On so many levels!

First of all, Goop and Chris are rarely photographed together. And while Chris seems to be taking (minor) pains to walk behind his wife, hoping perhaps to not be included in the paparazzi shots, the photographers did manage to get him in the same frame for a few shots. This wasn’t even the first time they’ve been in the same frame within a week – a photographer also got shots of the Paltrow-Martin family leaving Toys R Us last week too! Go here to see those pics.

By the way, have you been on recently? Gwyneth has added a bunch of new “Goop Collection” products, including a $55 V-neck t-shirt (that currently only comes in XS), a $490 black jumpsuit (it comes in XL, for the oversized peasants) and $195 hoop earrings. You know what’s really interesting though? Gwyneth has really been phoning it in as far as her weekly Goop-letter goes. She took off for the entire summer, and came back with more interest in her “Goop Collection” and her Goopy life-advice. Well, I guess we should applaud her for not getting bored with our peasant-ness.

PS… I think Apple is going to be an unconventional beauty when she grows up – like, she’ll be a model and people will endlessly compare her to Kate Moss.

    Why does Gwyneth’s hair look so healthy and shiny here, and so dead and fried on the red carpet? Strange.

    Side note: feel uncomfortable with pap photos of kids.

  2. Christie says:

    Is it weird that all I can think is that Apple’s dressed pretty high fashion (for lack of a better word) for an 8 year old?

    But woah to Goop and Chris being somewhere together.

  3. dcypher1 says:

    I dont understand why they go out of there way not to be paped together. Thats ur husband goop why cant u just be normal and take the stupid pic together already. Who cares whats the big deal.

  4. Leah says:

    Chris seen with Goop? No way, she must have blackmailed him or something. Move to the US and agree to photo ops or else.

    • MW says:

      That’s what I thought. Why now?. All of these pix are really odd, since there have never, pretty much, been any before. The first shots had the kids’ faces pixelated; even some with him playing in a drainage ditch with the kids. I wonder how long he’s going to put up with this before going back to London and privacy, I guess is what I’m feeling.

    • Trashaddict says:

      Now that they are pushing the photo-ops, I give the marriage less than a year.

  5. LadyMTL says:

    Kaiser, I was thinking the exact same thing about Apple – that girl is going to be so stunning once she gets older! I see shades of Kate Moss in her already, tbh…I think it’s the wide-set eyes.

    • j.eyre says:

      I agree, both kids have wonderful faces. I think they will be quite stunning as they age.

    • Mazunte says:

      I agree. When I saw these pictures, my thought was, ‘typical model look, Kate Moss style.” I like her strange but interesting eyes.

  6. DanaG says:

    I always thought these two were an odd couple. Why move back to LA? Gwennie worried she isn’t getting enough pap attention?

    • Dizzy says:

      Endless sunshine versus endless clouds and rain. Bitter binge drinkers versus sunny surfers. It’s a no brainer really. Wish I had the option to relocate to California!

    • Raven says:

      I think their maternal grandmother lives there. Plus, maybe one of them has a project that is more easily done in LA.

  7. Anna says:

    Had the exact thought of Apple before I read your line. Such an interesting face.

  8. Mia 4S says:

    Goop choosing LA over London?! What is this world? All I can figure us she wants to be a movie star again (let’s face it, outside of Iron Man she’s a non-entity) or it has something to do with what Chris is up to…or who Chris was up to, *cough*.

    • Ranunculus says:

      I think I read somewhere that Goopy is portraying Dora Maar, Pablo Picasso’s long time muse, in a movie soon. Don’t know who is producing or directing, but sounds interesting. I hope there are not too many real life resemblances, because Picasso was an utter asshole to Dora Maar for almost ten years(he was 50-something and she was 29 when they met)

  9. daz says:

    does Apple have slight Strabismus

    • shixa says:

      I had to look this up, but I agree that something looks weird or off with her eyes.

    • handsome man saved me from the monsters says:

      Yeah, I dont like to comment on children’s appearances but I’ve been saying that since she was born.

  10. Leah says:

    I may be the only one but I don’t find Apple cute now or in the next 15years.
    And no I’m not attacking her.

  11. dooliloo says:

    Apple is basically mini Chris Martin.

    Goop and her husband together? Hmmm weird, very weird… Iron Man isn’t before 2013 so is there another Goop film around or?

    • Esmom says:

      Yes, I think both kids got way more of his looks than hers. Apple especially.

      And I’d say that does bode for unconventional good looks. I think he is unconventionally handsome. Some days I find him totally hot, other days not so much.

  12. Jayna says:

    Odd that Gynneth never mentioned in any interview they were moving here for the school year, which makes it their primary residence.

  13. Talie says:

    Apple reminds me of ET…but not in a bad way! I agree, she does have that future fashion model look.

  14. ojulia123 says:

    I wish the paps would leave celebrities alone when they’re with their kids. That’s got to be pretty scary for them.

  15. Green is Good says:

    These pics are weird. Chris looks like he’s either doing the walk-of-shame, or he’s the manny. Or worse, a peasant!

    Goopy as usual looks like a pretentious snot.

  16. hoya_chick says:

    Those kids are unremarkable. Also, I don’t want to hear anything from her about the paps stalking them. You move to pap central you invite it. I’m sure there are ways not to be photograph but she looks like she is eating up the attention.

    • shixa says:

      “she looks like she is eating up the attention.”

      Doesn’t she??

      Amazing how American schools are suddenly good enough huh? She’s gross.

  17. Quinn says:

    Apple looks JUST like Chris..not sure how this will translate later in life.

  18. valleymiss says:

    I wonder why they’d pick LA and not NYC as their American home base? LA is so gauche! (I say with tongue firmly in cheek, as I am an LA native and current resident!) It’s not like Goopy has to be here for film work. Aside from Iron Man, what does she do? P.S. gahhh I love Chris Martin so much.

  19. Gal says:

    They must be headed for divorce if they’re being photographed together.

  20. L says:

    I always thought Goop was going on and on about how much more ‘cultured’ europe was the the US, and how she wanted her kids to go to school over there.

    Anytime someone who has been uber super private starts getting papped with their spouse and kids all the time my radar goes off. What’s changed?

    They are in LA for her career. Period. It’s circling the drain and she needed a boost. I’m willing to bet she was sick of the rumors that she and Martin were splitting up are part of why they all of a sudden don’t have a problem being papped together (or at least she doesn’t-he looks less than pleased)

    • Esmom says:

      I’d hardly say her career is circling the drain. She’s not as hot as she used to be, career-wise, but my guess is that she’s doing just fine.

      • L says:

        Really? What’s she done?, Iron Man in a small bit part(which she is clinging to desperately) and….a guest appearance on Glee. And that’s all I can think of from the last 3 years. I mean that sincerely.

  21. Bird says:

    I would guess she needs to be in LA a lot for Iron Man 3 promotion and it made sense for them to relocate temporarily so the family could be together. I think both kids are really cute and agree that Apple has that future super model look about her.

  22. carrie says:

    since they live in LA,you just see them more together (thank to paps)

  23. bns says:

    I can’t believe Chris and Gwyneth are still together.

  24. Jen34 says:

    I doubt those kids are going to school. Where is the uniform or the backpack/messenger bag? Not buying it.

  25. Lem says:

    Trust no one. Stock your pantry. This is a telling of the next apocalypse. Mark my words, this is not good.
    The winds will howl, the streets will flood and the Middle will freeze over.
    Is there a special end of days colonic kit or zombie macro cookbook or maybe just a overpriced smock to keep my virgin bat hair sweater clean…

  26. Memphis says:

    Apple looks just like her daddy! Gwyneth still looks like she hates peasants, so all is right with the world.

  27. roxy750 says:

    I bet her kids don’t see her that often, she is too busy promoting herself and everything else in between how ever does she have to spend with her kids…Goop needs a little down time out of the public eye I think. Off topic I love what she’s wearing here.=, and her hubby’s shoes are way immature. These two make a strange couple.

  28. Dap says:

    Last time I saw two celebs walking their kids to school together (and it was on this very same path), it was Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp. Just saying…

  29. RN says:

    It must be exhausting being married to her. He probably isn’t even allowed to think his own thoughts.

  30. annaloo. says:

    For the word of celeb kids and the mildly taboo act of commenting on their looks, Apple def has an unusual face, the jury is still out on how it comes together as she gets older. For now, it sort of reminds me of a frog.Sorry! Just being honest.

  31. apsutter says:

    All I can see is a strained horrible mess of a relationship. I know everyone has different needs in their relationship but I honestly cannot imagine living my life the way that they do. Who wants to be married to a person who never ever talks about you and actually gets pissy when asked about you? Maybe I’m emotionally needy but I like being with my man as much as I can because I genuinely like being with him and he makes me happy. And, 9 years in, people still comment that we both look super happy and giddy when we’re together. They can’t even smile when they’re together…weird.

  32. Lauren says:

    Goopy looks so sad..not because of the paps. She works out, eats twigs & roots, bleaches her hair..and she still does not exude confidence. Something is wrong. I think Chris has cheated on her..repeatedly. Goop looks defeated and miserable.

    • giddy says:

      Agreed. It’s not just because she’s a miserable bitch… He’s a philanderer. And they’re togther because of the children — which on some levels is admirable.

      Notice how she dresses Apple. So sweet and rather traditional. Apple looks better than Gwyneth. Goop always seems so try-hard hipster. Maybe because she dresses for him. Ugh. She has a great figure and maybe the best legs in H-wood. But she dresses like a teen. Wish she’d stop it.

  33. Loulou says:

    It looks like Gwyneth had been crying. Apple looked up sympathetically.

  34. mimi (a different one) says:

    She looks pretty but as if she is going through some very difficult personal time.

    I wonder if this means they are divorcing and he has to start spending more time with the kids and show some parenting.

    I feel for her. I do. She has been some kind of a single parent for years now.

  35. lisa2 says:

    Apple looks just like her father, but with her mother’s hair and face shape. I think Moses is a cute little boy.

  36. Aurelia says:

    For such and “anti peasant” she sure gave her children ultra white trash names!

    Looks like they just had a fight.

  37. hmm says:

    I don’t understand why he’s into her…

    She’s so high-maintenance and pretentious and I’m sure she’s a BORE…..

  38. Cinderella says:

    Am I the only one rooting for them? Despite whatever issues she has, I’ve always believed she worships him. I think he’s the tough nut in this marriage.

  39. Kristina says:

    The rude and judgy comments on this post and others about children’s looks are really uncalled for and make me sad that grown people would come here to say things about a child’s face. Judge away at the parents but leave the kids alone–they’re kids!

  40. dh says:

    gotta compete with the Affleck’s recent love tour.

  41. Leek says:

    Gwyneth’s nose looks red like she was crying. I have no point to make except she just looks sad to me and in the first picture Apple is looking at her mom like she’s concerned.

  42. Missykittens says:

    I think Chris would be the hard one to live with. Gwyneth seems like she wants to be the perfect wife, while chris won’t even publicly acknowledge her existence.
    Other things she has said “it’s embarrassing playing guitar in front of your rockstar husband” or something along those lines, makes me think he is not a nice guy… Although Gwyneth seems like she looks down on people who are not as financially endowed, lol, i kind of like her.

  43. Latoya says:

    I thought she was moving to LA because her mum was elderly/sick?

    Are there rumours about Chris Martin having an affair? He looked v close to Rhianna at London Paralympics.
