Bringing an end to a family-filled weekend, Gwyneth Paltrow took her two young children out for a park playdate in New York City on Sunday afternoon (October 16).

Cheerfully dressed in a bright red sweater, the Oscar-winning actress was all smiles as she watched 7-year-old Apple and 5-year-old Moses cruise down the slides and climb about the equipment during the Big Apple outing.

The sighting comes just as Miss Paltrow's rock star husband Chris Martin offered up during a praise-filled interview about his actress wife - saying that marrying Gwyneth was like "winning the lottery."

Talking with CBS Sunday Morning, the Coldplay frontman said of nabbing the big screen beauty, "It's a big leap? What, from being a loser to going out with an Oscar winner? It's a giant leap. Lets face it, it's like winning the lottery."

As for being a parent to Apple and Moses, Martin told, "It's made it more focused. And you have a purpose. I like what it does. Just the idea of having to work hard so your kids are okay."
