Gwyneth Paltrow has thanked fans for their support following the news that she and Chris Martin have separated.

Oscar winner Gwyneth and Coldplay musician Chris announced their split after more than ten years of marriage earlier this week.

And now, Gwyneth has broken her silence (kind of) with a short message on her Goop lifestyle website.

Gwyneth wrote: "CM and I in deep gratitude for the support of so many." She added a heart icon to the end of the message.

But in typical Gwyneth and Chris style, the note of thanks was unassuming, simply tacked onto the end of another post about chicken recipes.

Gwyneth and Chris are notoriously private about their relationship and were rarely photographed together during their time as a couple.

They are parents to two children: nine-year-old Apple and seven-year-old Moses.

In the statement announcing their split - or "conscious uncoupling" as they put it - the couple insisted they had parted amicably and would remain good friends.

"We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and 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," they added. "We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
