The couple was married for 11 years before announcing its split in 2014.

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are officially divorced, according to a report.

The 43-year-old actress and the Coldplay frontman announced their "conscious uncoupling" in March, 2014 and Gwyneth subsequently filed to legally end their marriage.

According to, the two parties have since agreed to give up rights to spousal support and are now officially single again.

Despite their split, Chris and Gwyneth have remained close and insist their focus remains on their two children, Apple and Moses. The family recently enjoyed a trip to Peru in April (16), when Moses marked turning 10 by joining his rocker dad onstage, while the former couple also spent a day at Disneyland together earlier this month (May16) to celebrate Apple's 12th birthday.

Gwyneth previously explained that while the break-up was difficult, it was important for the children to see their parents get along.

"It's also almost about having to press the 'override' button whenever you feel angry or jealous or whatever, broken-hearted," she told Red magazine. "I'm going back to the baseline of I love this person, he is the father of my children, he's a wonderful man. I'm just going to put my s**t aside for right now. It really has not been easy for me at times, I'm sure it's not been easy for him."

"(But) when we said we're going to put the children first, we meant (it)," she added. "If you want to put your children first, then why are you slagging your husband off in front of them? So we really tried (and) that meant I'm gonna check my s**t at the door, and I'm going to focus on all the reasons that I love you, that you're like my brother and my family forever. I have to say it wasn't the outcome we were hoping for, but it was our outcome and we've really done the best that we can."
