Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow officially divorce

Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are officially divorced.

The celebrity duo, who famously announced their "conscious uncoupling" two years ago, reached a divorce settlement in May and their judgement has now been entered at a Los Angeles County court, according to People magazine.

The couple first announced their plan to end their decade-long marriage in March 2014.

In a statement released through the actresses' Goop blog, they said at the time: "We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate.

"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been."

Since then, Chris and the 'Iron Man' actress have remained close, holidaying with their two children - Moses, 10, and Apple, 12 - and socialising at other family gatherings.

Just recently, in fact, Gwyneth watched Chris perform with his band Coldplay at the Glastonbury music festival.

Despite this scenario, Gwyneth has previously admitted she has put some of her own issues to one side in order to maintain a healthy relationship with the father of her children.

She shared: "As anybody who has been divorced knows, you have to put a lot aside to maintain the family and the practicalities of what that might mean and sometimes that's quite tough on a personal level.

"It's a commitment I make every day to my children and their father even though we're not in a romantic relationship."
