In October 2002, Paltrow met Chris Martin of the British rock group Coldplay backstage three weeks after the death of her father, Bruce Paltrow. They married on December 5, 2003, in a ceremony at a hotel in Southern California. The couple have two children together: Apple Blythe Alison Martin (b. 2004) and Moses Bruce Anthony Martin (b. 2006). Paltrow explained Apple's very unusual first name on Oprah, saying: "It sounded so sweet and it conjured such a lovely picture for me – you know, apples are so sweet and they're wholesome and it's biblical – and I just thought it sounded so lovely and ... clean! And I just thought, 'Perfect!'." She explained her son's first name came from the song, titled "Moses", that her husband wrote for her before their wedding.
Paltrow cut down on work after becoming a mother. She also suffered from postpartum depression after the birth of her son, Moses.
Paltrow's father came from a long line of influential East European rabbis, and that inspired Paltrow to raise her daughter and son in a Jewish environment. Paltrow has stated, "if you could see how much food I make – I am the original Jewish mother".
On March 25th 2014 she announced that she and her husband Chris Martin had separated.
