My baby days are over, says Paltrow

Comment on this story
paltrow lib AP Gwyneths friends say that she worked very hard at maintaining the marriage, and was willing to forgive his rumoured infidelity.

London - She has spoken warmly of the joys of motherhood – but it seems Gwyneth Paltrow is not planning to expand her family.

The star has revealed she does not intend to have another baby, saying “I don’t know if I can go back to diapers”.

Miss Paltrow – mother to daughter Apple, eight, and son Moses, six – juggles a film and business career with the demands of parenthood.

When asked if she would like more children with husband Chris Martin, 35, she said: “I don’t think so. I would love to, but I sort of feel like I don’t know if I can go back to diapers and things like that.

“I’m so past that, I think I may have missed the window.

“I think if maybe when Moses was three, I would have done it, or four even, but now he’s six and such a guy, I feel like I’m out of the baby phase. If it happens, it happens.”

The 39-year-old – who divides her time across London, New York and Los Angeles with Coldplay singer Mr Martin – said being a parent had changed her life.

She added: “I feel like motherhood has given me all my happiness and a real life: a husband, my children and everything that’s invested in that.”

But she said it could be difficult, adding: “I feel very stressed out if I’m trying to cook and help the children with their homework and answer emails and talk to my lawyer or whatever. I try to do things one at a time.” - Daily Mail
