Just a couple of pals consciously coupling up for photos.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Dakota Johnson got together on Monday night to celebrate their friend, Derek Blasberg's, birthday. Fans were happily surprised to see the two together as Johnson has been dating Paltrow's ex-husband, Chris Martin, for quite some time now -- and Blasberg's caption made the situation a bit comical.
"Consciously throupling," the birthday boy captioned his photo, which poked fun at Paltrow's phrase she used to announce her divorce from the Coldplay frontman. Martin and Paltrow split in 2014, sharing the news on a Goop blogpost titled "Conscious Uncoupling," with the phrase quickly attracting all sorts of attention.
Blasberg also shared another group shot on his Instagram Story with the actresses, as well as with Paltrow's husband, Brad Falchuck, and Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka. Martin was not featured in any of his posts.
Johnson and Martin first sparked rumors of their romance in early 2018. While both have maintained their relationship private, the 50 Shades Darker star told Tatler magazine in October that she was "not going to talk about it," before adding, "but I am very happy."
Meanwhile, Paltrow has always been open about her friendly and close relationship she has with her ex-husband despite their divorce. The exes share two kids together, 14-year-old daughter Apple and 13-year-old son Moses, and in January, she shared that Martin and their children even accompanied her and Falchuk on their honeymoon in the Maldives over the holidays.
