The stars are dedicated to maintaining a close family unit for their two children.

A Los Angeles judge has officially signed off on Gwyneth Paltrow's divorce from rocker Chris Martin.

The Iron Man actress and Coldplay frontman Chris announced their "conscious uncoupling" in March, 2014 and Gwyneth subsequently filed to legally end their marriage.

The two parties reached a split settlement in May (16), when they agreed on terms for property and child support, and also gave up their rights to spousal support, paving the way for their divorce to be finalised.

Now People.com reports Gwyneth and Chris are legally single again, after their judgement was entered into a Los Angeles court on Thursday (14Jul16).

The former couple, which wed in 2003, has remained close for the sake of its two children, Apple and Moses.

The family enjoyed a trip to Peru in April (16), when Moses marked turning 10 by joining his rocker dad onstage, while Paltrow and Martin also spent a day at Disneyland together in May (16) to celebrate Apple's 12th birthday.

Gwyneth recently admitted she still has so much love for Chris and is proud of her new relationship with her ex.

"My children know that we're in a loving family," she said during a Cannes Lions conversation with HardTalk's Stephen Sackur last month (Jun16). "And I adore their father even though we're not in a romantic relationship.

"I'm very proud of us for the way that - as anyone who has been divorced knows - we have had to put aside an awful lot to stay a family for the sake of the children. Sometimes it's quite tough on a personal level."

Both stars have since moved on in their love lives - Gwyneth has been dating TV producer Brad Falchuk, and last year (15), Chris was linked to Peaky Blinders beauty Annabelle Wallis. He also dated Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence following his marriage split.
