Gwyneth Paltrow came clean in a magazine interview about the real reason for having just two kids, saying her third pregnancy ended in a miscarriage that nearly killed her, Sky News reports. "I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third," she said. "It didn't work out and I nearly died. So I am like, 'Are we good here or should we go back and try again?'" But her children often ask for another sibling, and she feels "very broody" when she sees pal Beyonce Knowles with her "totally delish" one-year-old, Blue Ivy.
The 40-year-old Oscar winner also oozed kudos for rocker-husband Chris Martin, saying he's a great dad to 8-year-old Apple and 6-year-old Moses. He "is so good to the children and to know that you had kids with such a good man is a real weight off you," she said. "We are committed co-parents, we make all the decisions together and lean on each other for support." Asked last year about having a third child, Paltrow said she was "past that" and "may have missed the window," reports the Daily Mail. "If it happens, it happens."
