(Newser) – It's a major celeb breakup: Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay's Chris Martin have decided to separate after 10 years of marriage, reports TMZ. It was actually Paltrow herself who broke the news on her Goop website, under the very Paltrow-esque headline of "Conscious Uncoupling." She and Martin have two kids—daughter Apple 9, and son Moses, 7—and they vow to be "parents first and foremost" during the split, reports US Weekly.

"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate," reads the statement. "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."
