Gwyneth Paltrow is enjoying Spain with her kids, Apple and Moses. Chris Martin is also on tour there at the moment, but they’re finding time to do plenty of fun things together. Isn’t this a great picture of the three of them?
While I’m sure that a lot of people will not be agreeing with her on this one, according to Gwyneth Paltrow the best job for moms this day is modeling. But not just because of the actual work, but the flexibility that it gives moms. She tells Women’s Wear Daily:
“I have had a really good experience working for Boss, and I always say this, but it really is such a perfect job when you have kids.”
Gwyneth also adds:
“I can only really do one film a year now because of my family and how it all works out, so it’s so nice for me to be able to work for a great company and, you know, I’m going to Spain next week for two days so I still get to travel and meet really interesting people and have a work interaction. But it’s not like I am out of the house for three month.”

Love her or hate her, there’s no denying that Gwyneth Paltrow is everywhere these days! The actress and celebrity mom opens up to the British version of Glamour Magazine, where inside she talks about her life in London with her children and how she tries to make her marriage work to her husband, Chris Martin. Here are some snippets of what she says:
She loves London: “I love London – it’s my adopted home. Being an American woman living in Britain, there are things I’ve had to catch up on, though. Chris had to explain Blue Peter to me! In London, the kids and I really take advantage of the city. I have them on the tube, in the museums, in St James’ Park, the theatre. I use that city so much – I want them exposed to it.”
Balancing work and motherhood: “I drive the kids to school, I cook. But I have a nanny, so if I need to go to Dubai for Max Factor, then I can.”
Marriage problems: “It’s hard being married. You go through great times, you go through terrible times. We’re the same as any couple. I asked my dad once, ‘How did you and Mum stay married for 33 years?’ And he said, ‘Well, we never wanted to get divorced at the same time’. And I think that’s what happens. When two people throw in the towel at the same time, then you break up, but if one person’s saying, “come on, we can do this’, you carry on. I’ve learned more about myself by being married than anything else. I hate to say, ‘We’ve got it worked out,’ because you never know what’s going to happen, but we laugh, we’re good friends, we like to do the same stuff.”
Her children: “Having children changed everything. I used to work all the time, but if you do that, you don’t see your kids, so I look for something that’s interesting, that doesn’t require me to be in every scene and fits in with my children’s schoolschedule. Having children is a huge responsibility in terms of raising people who will contribute to the world. The people I’ve met who function best in the world are people with good manners, who are curious, who know different places and speak more than one language. So that’s what I’m trying to do.”

There is no denying that Gwyneth Paltrow is EVERYWHERE these days! The celebrity mom graces the cover of this month’s Harper’s Bazaar magazine, where inside she talks about her career, her family, and her thoughts on having a third child. Here are some highlights below:
She’s “over” being in London: Having survived her 10th London winter (she got through January by assigning it “international month,” and amusing Moses and his big sister, Apple, 9, with a visiting Italian chef, Japanese anime screenings, and hand-rolled-sushi lessons, no less), Paltrow admits that her dreams of relocating the family to their recently acquired residence in Brentwood, California, are becoming ever more urgent. “Just to have my kids be in the sun every day—picking avocados, going for a swim,” she says. “Even for two years or something, and come back when they go to senior school.”
Turning 40 years old: “I’m at quite a pivotal point: Do I want to go back more into films? Do I want another child? Do I want to move back to the States?” Her wide blue-gray eyes flash me a look of amused self-knowledge. “You can call me a lot of things, but you can’t call me complacent!”
Having another kid: “There are some films that I want to do, and I love my business and I want to expand that a lot. We’ll sort of see. I mean, if I want to have another kid, I gotta kind of get on it.” We discuss the domestic cocoon of new motherhood—and weighing the option of climbing back into the maternal nest. “But then you see a baby and you smell a baby!” she says, almost squealing. “And you’re like, ‘Yep, I do.’ I don’t know. It’s a very big decision, so we’ll see. Anyway, I’m not doing it this month!”

Gwyneth Paltrow wants you to know that yes, her kids eat all the same junk food that our kids eat on a regular basis, too. Well, they probably don’t chow down on cheese puffs the same way that Honey Boo Boo does, but that doesn’t mean they’ve never had them before!
The actress recently appeared on the Dr. Oz show, where she debunked rumors about her children being on an “elimination diet.” She says:
“Well, it’s actually not true. They’re not on an elimination diet at all. What it is, is that my son has very bad eczema and he’s allergic to gluten and he’s allergic to cow dairy. I try at home to make everything gluten-free for him because the difference in his comfort is unbelievable when he’s sticking to what he’s meant to be eating. I don’t know where they get some of this stuff! They say I don’t give my kids carbs, and I’m feeding them seaweed…I have no idea. But they eat Oreos, too, and they’re normal kids.”
