Chris Martin of Coldplay and Gwyneth Paltrow divorced in 2014, but have been on good terms since then. They have two kids together, Apple and Moses, and have regularly spent time together as a family since the split.

Paltrow recently announced her engagement to Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk. It seems like Paltrow and Martin really are on good terms because he’s going to be best man at the wedding, according to

A source close to Paltrow said:

“Apple is really into the whole thing and wants to be chief wedding planner. She thinks it’s cool she gets to see her mum get married – she’s demanding a white dress, bridesmaids, and a bouquet throwing extravaganza.

“She’d also like Chris to be best man, and Gwyn seems happy with all her suggestions. It might seem a bit odd, but Brad is open to it. He sees Gwyn as the arbiter of all that’s progressive. Plus, he knows it’ll make her kids happy.”

Paltrow and Falchuk have been dating since 2014 – following her and Martin’s breakup.
