Just after they announced their separation, we listed the reasons why Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin will forever remain one of our favorite couples — and, alas, it looks like there may be hope for a reunion!
Since the public split (or, as Paltrow declared it, a "conscious uncoupling"), Martin moved out to Malibu and then back to the Brentwood home he shares with estranged wife and their two children. The Goop actress and Colplay's frontman have also been spotted out and about together multiple times.
According to a source close to the pair, a permanent "recoupling" is not out of the question. "They haven't made any concrete decision to get back together yet, but clearly it's a possibility," a friend of Paltrow and Martin's tells People. "At this point, some of the pressure was just taken off them — pressure they put on themselves to 'make it work.'"
Another source close to the couple adds: "They have spent more time together than they did when they were a couple. When they are out together, all they do is laugh and act flirty and playful."
"Gwyneth didn't want to end the marriage and is happy that she and Chris still have a close relationship," says a different friend of the family's. "He's been a great father and that has helped keep the flame alive. They clearly love each other and always will, and if the romance comes back, they'll go with it if it feels right."
No matter what happens, one thing is clear: Their kids are the most important thing to them both — and they will continue to remain close to ensure their children's happiness.
