Add Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin to the list of celebrity exes (Orlando Bloom/Miranda Kerr and Bruce Willis/Demi Moore) who have remained close friends after calling it quits (anyone remember their 2014 "conscious uncoupling?").

On Thursday, Paltrow further proved the former couple is co-parenting goals with a sweet birthday tribute to her ex-husband Martin, with whom she shares kids Apple and Moses Martin. The wellness guru posted a selfie with Martin, who is pulling down his face mask to give the camera a soft smile. Paltrow wears auburn-colored glasses with thick frames while Martin sports a black beanie.

"Happy birthday to the sweetest father and friend❤️," she wrote alongside the snap. "we love you, cajm."

Paltrow has since married TV writer and producer Brad Falchuk and Martin has dating actress Dakota Johnson for over five years. And similar to Bloom and Kerr's relationship (which now includes a friendship between Bloom's girlfriend Katy Perry and Kerr), Paltrow and Johnson have also become close over the years. In a 2020 Harper's Bazaar interview, Paltrow gushed about Johnson.

“I love her,” she said. “I can see how it would seem weird because it’s sort of unconventional. But I think, in this case, just having passed through it iteratively, I just adore her. I always start to think of the ampersand sign—what else can you bring in, instead of being resistant to or being made insecure by? There’s so much juice in leaning in to something like that.”
