Posted Wednesday March 26, 2014 8:00 AM GMT

After two children and ten years of marriage, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have decided to call it quits.

Under the title, "Conscious Uncoupling" the "Iron Man" star announced on her GOOP website, "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate."

Committed to Apple and Moses, she continues, "We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."

Breakup rumors have long been swirling and last year there were reports that a Vanity Fair story was going to run about Gwyneth allegedly cheating on Chris. Stay linked to GossipCenter as the story develops.
