The inevitable has come to pass: We have a "conscious re-coupling" headline about Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, courtesy of the Daily Mirror. Sources say Paltrow and Martin—whose "conscious uncoupling" was filled with family vacations, goodbye gifts, spiritual parting ceremonies, and joint outings—are now putting those uncoupling plans on hold. "It’s true they had problems, but in the weirdest way this 'conscious uncoupling' situation has relieved the pressure on them," says one. "It seems to have acted as a wake-up call."
"Chris still lives with her, they are amazingly lovey-dovey together and she still wears her wedding ring," the source continues. "No one will be surprised if they get back together." Another source compares them to Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, but adds, "There was a lot of talking, a lot of analysis—probably too much—and when they decided to call it a day, actually what they’d done was clear the air and given each other an exit route. I think both of them saw it—and then looked at what they have." They've been spotted together multiple times recently near their shared LA home, often looking romantic.
