Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow have finalised their divorce, according to a new report. The Coldplay frontman is said to have "signed the divorce papers" two years after the couple announced they were "consciously uncoupling".

The pair, who remain on great terms, split in March 2014 and a year later Gwyneth filed for divorce. Her ex Chris was allegedly served the documents in May 2015 but he hasn't responded until now.

"Chris has now signed the divorce papers," a source told The Sun. "There was no underlying reason why he had left them for so long and he was planning to do it eventually."

The insider added: "There is no bad blood between him and Gwyneth and they remain very close. As ever, their number one priority is their kids."

The couple are expected to receive joint legal and physical custody of their two children – 11-year-old daughter Apple and nine-year-old son Moses.

Chris and Gwyneth are also said to be splitting their assets, worth a combined fortune of £169million, evenly.

The report comes after the Paradise singer opened up about his "weird" but "wonderful separation-divorce".

Speaking to the Sunday Times Magazine, Chris, 39, admitted: "It's a divorce, but it's a weird one. It's funny. I don't think about that word very often – divorce. I don't see it that way. I see it more like you meet someone, you have some time together and things just move through."

The couple's children are clearly their priority, as Chris and Gwyneth still go on holiday together and are regularly pictured enjoying family days out. Gwyneth's mum Blythe Danner has also spoken about her pride in her daughter following the split.

"The kids come first, the family comes first," said Gwyneth's mum Blythe Danner

"I've learned a lot from her," she said during an appearance on Lorraine. "She's an extraordinary mother and such a brilliant actress. I'm hoping as the children get older she will come back to [acting] because to me there's no-one like her, she can do anything."

Blythe added: "They had this conscious uncoupling which some people questioned and say, well what's that? They've made it work, the kids come first, the family comes first. We do Christmas and the holidays and I'm really proud of them. They've made it work so well."
