Gwyneth Paltrow & Brad Falchuk are engaged after four years together

Happy birthday, handsome

A post shared by Gwyneth Paltrow (@gwynethpaltrow) on

Gwyneth Paltrow: serial monogamist or nah? I gave Gwyneth a lot of sh-t about Brad Falchuk, mostly because it was pretty clear that they had an affair which ended up destroying both of their marriages. What bugged me about that is that Gwyneth is Little Miss Perfect so most people fell all over themselves to justify it. If Brad’s wife had been famous, or if Gwyneth wasn’t so privileged, it would have been a bigger deal. Anyway, Goop and Falchuk have been together for years, ever since she began guesting on Glee (remember that?). Falchuk was her jumpoff after Chris Martin and from what I’ve seen, she never dated anyone else post-Chris. And now they’re engaged.

Goop there it is! Gwyneth Paltrow is engaged to her producer boyfriend Brad Falchuk after more than three years together, according to multiple reports.

The couple has been engaged for a year, according to ET. A rep for Paltrow has not commented.

The couple went public with their romance back in April 2015 at Robert Downey Jr.’s 50th birthday bash. Before that, they had been linked for more than a year, but flew under the radar with their relationship.

“She’s crazy about Brad,” a source close to the actress previously told PEOPLE. Though the source said that she’s “cautious about marriage” and “very happy with how things are,” it wasn’t “out of the question” for the couple to walk down the aisle in the future.

Paltrow, 45, has been giving her man some social media love lately. She posted a picture of the two dressed as characters from her movie Sev7n for Halloween and also wished him a happy birthday earlier in the year.

Us Weekly said the same thing, that they’re engaged but “they both knew it would happen, but it wasn’t a big thing to them because they were both in long marriages before. There wasn’t a rush.” I suspect part of the reason why they weren’t in a “rush” was because it took so much time for both of them to finalize their respective divorces. I also think Gwyneth was pushing for an engagement – like, she wasn’t doing some kind of “marriage isn’t a big deal at this point” thing. She was reportedly pushing him to propose months ago. He finally got the hint. And this was the face she made when he proposed:

    I always wonder about second and third weddings and if the families feel a sense of dejà vu.
    My father married 3 times and his first wedding happened when he was 20. Noticing that he was getting very jittery his mother in law to be kindly said:”Don’t worry about it? everyone is scared the first three times.” She married nine times!

    I don’t care for her condescending attitude however Chris Martin is like, anti-sex to me.

    ::says the moderately overweight nerd from her cover fort::::

      ::says the funny, intellectual girl (who’s probably quite pretty but doesn’t know it) from her cover fort::

      There. Fixed it for you.

      • Plantpal says:

        Well played Juliaoc! I like how you fixed it for her!! All love, all the time, even for ourselves! Easy to say, hard to do. You kept us on track. @Crowdhood, I’m with you re Chris Martin being the Anti-sex (from the fat lady who sings and makes many a joyful noise!!).

      • Dani says:

        Hands down best comment ever, on any site. You rock.

      • ponchobean says:

        you’re amazing wow

    • Jenny says:

      Agree about Martin but Goopy def hasn’t traded up, this Falchuk guy looks incredibly un-appealing. Hope his ex-wife traded up when she got rid of this loser.

  3. DazLondon says:

    For Goop four years living in SIN must have been torture

  4. Maria F. says:

    will she now claim she invented the concious coupling?

    • Astrid says:


    • Curious says:

      enlightended conscious coupling …

      nope, it is more like spiritual organic conscious re-coupling

      Just imagine the benefits for Goop website: honeymoon starter dish, hottie honeymoon night cup …

  5. Danielle says:

    “The couple has been engaged for a year, according to ET”

    How are we only hearing about this now?

  6. Clare says:

    Ah remember when Goopy what the most problematic rich white girl on the block? Now we have White Supremacist Barbie (Taylor swift, don’t sue me) and Lena ‘woke as long as you’re white’ Dunham to contend with.

    Bring me back to a time when Goopy steaming her vag was the most offensive thing on my newsfeed.

    • Sunsetsnow81 says:

      Yes, looking back Goopy is relatively harmless compared to the other two you mentioned.

      • Fleurucci says:

        Well lately people mainly complain about things that aren’t race related with Gwyneth. That her products and advice are BS and she’s horrible for shilling them, is said a lot

        Also she’s hated on for having dry straight ironed hair

    • annaloo. says:

      Gwyneth is still the poster child of what is wrong by way of snobbery and elitism. No pass!

    • Milla says:

      Goop was never harmful. More like fun. But i still think you are being too harsh on Swifty. Look at Morrissey. Do you really wanna hear what every musician has to say?

    • Curious says:

      Don’t forget Orangina’s first daughter Ivanka. Likely she isn’t just problematic but from a criminal family.

  7. Liberty says:

    Quick, Goop, my client is laughing and says she needs to know: which crystal does one scoot up one’s love tunnel to encourage a proposal?

  8. JoJo says:

    I didn’t realize this broke up both of their marriages. I knew Falchuk was married, but as for Goop, I thought there were all those rumors that she and Martin had an open marriage, at least toward the last years and that he was also cheating. Thought their breakup was a mutual thing, but then I never followed them closely.

    • littlemissnaughty says:

      I was completely caught off guard by that comment. She had an affair with him and it destroyed her marriage? I was under the impression that her marriage was on the rocks for a long time and Christ Martin cheated (as well?).

      • emma33 says:

        Yes, me too. It was fairly obvious that her marriage had been dead in the water for at least a couple of years.

      • perplexed says:

        I think there was a Vanity Fair story about her possibly cheating that got killed.

        I also thought Chris Martin cheated for some reason, but I have no idea where I got the idea from.

        Anyway, I think they both cheated, so that didn’t really make me look at her funny. But that the other guy was married and she didn’t care probably made me go “huh.”

      • CynicalAnn says:

        @perplexed: rumors that he cheated with Kate Bosworth who ran in the same friend circles with Gwyneth and was then suddenly dropped by those same women like a hot rock.

      • Curious says:

        That would explain Bosworth’s career dump.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I wasn’t aware of that either. In any case I think they seem cute together and their Halloween photo is funny.

      • Millenial says:

        It was a pretty clever costume.

        And I always got the impression that Chris and Gwenyth both cheated on each other.

  9. Nancy says:

    Brad and Gwyneth reunited at last. Oh, not that Brad?

  10. tracking says:

    Wonder how the kids on both sides get along. Interesting they haven’t been photographed together. Maybe the delayed announcement was for their sakes.

  11. BengalCat2000 says:

    Palchuck or Faltrow?

  12. minx says:

    Still can’t stand her; she’s smug and entitled. Now she’s smug, entitled and engaged.

  13. JA says:

    Always strange in these sort of situations. Do you offer congratulations for the upcoming nuptials/wedding even when you know the relationship caused the destruction of 2 marriages because of deceit, cheating and overall douchery??!! When you know both parties personally what does one say… good luck??! How bout this…You both deserve each other!

  14. Jayna says:

    She had an affair with Falchuk. But destroyed her marriage? No. The affair was a product of a marriage going down already, which had been in deep trouble.

    Chris had come out in an interview completely blaming himself for the marriage breakdown because of his personal issues and unable to love and give in the way his partner needed and deserved nor receive her love.

    The affair might have destroyed Falchuk’s marriage. But we don’t know anything about the state of Falchuk’s marriage. But if Chris doesn’t blame Gwyneth, and it’s more like he pushed her to someone else, why are we? The marriage was in trouble and it seems like both Chris and Gwyneth turned to other people and kept their separation quiet for a year. It just happened that Gwyneth’s stuck. It was obvious Gwyneth had worked on her marriage with Chris for years.

    Either way, they’ve all handled it in a way that was about the children. It seems Brad focused on his children, Gwyneth on hers, and let the relationship be private and not in everyone’s faces. I figured they were going to get married when a year ago she started plans to enlarge her already huge home.

    • slowsnow says:

      I can’t believe I’m saying something positive about Goop and whiny Chris Martin but kuddos to them for maintaining a warm relationship and positive attitude for the kids. They did handle their marital issues very well and moved on while keeping close for the sake of their children’s education. Who cares if they had an open, semi-open or cheating marriage? That’s their business and no one else’s. It’s hard (considering all the divorces and cheating out there) to keep a marriage alive and well apparently so well done Goop & Chris M. Here’s hoping her fiancé had the same skills.

  15. Josie says:

    Dear Gwyneth

    Please stop lightening your hair and just leave it to grow out naturally, or get a conditioning treatment it looks horrible.

    And keep out of the sun or fake tan or whatever makes you look like someone out of RHOBH or Towie, if that’s real you’re an idiot and you’ll end up looking like a handbag.

    Try looking normal and natural instead of so try hard

    People are piling on Anna Faris for admitting that her MO is to find a jump off before filing a divorce. Isn’t this similar to what Gwyneth Paltrow did, and what a lot of men and women do in relationships? Not condoning this practice, but it’s true that a lot of people are afraid of being alone. They stay in an unhappy marriage or relationship knowing that they will leave when they find another person with whom they want to have a long-term relationship/potential for marriage. I have come across lots of men who are always looking for something better even when they are with someone. This is why some affairs lead to break-ups and divorce on the part of the adulterer. There is no loyalty when someone is always looking for the next best thing, but it is quite common. The main difference is that there were believable rumors that Chris Martin was cheating as well, making their marriage an open one until Paltrow decided she wanted to commit to Falchuk.

    Maybe if you’re with a man who sports the same name as the man you were once with, and with whom you made a movie, you don’t ape the movie with the new man in the old man’s costume? Squick.
