Martin and Paltrow, 43, split in 2014 after almost 10 years of marriage but have remained so close for the sake of their kids, Apple, 11 and nine-year-old Moses, that the 43-year-old actress says they are now more like siblings.

Speaking about Martin, 39, Paltrow said on 'Today' show, "He's like my brother. I'm really close to him. We're a family. Even though we're not in a romantic relationship, we're a true family and we like to do things to reinforce that we're a family for the children [and] for each other. The split was a very intense time for our family. Emotions were very high and deep and all over the place. I just try to keep to myself as much as possible."

The entire family cheered Martin on when he performed with Coldplay during the half-time show at Super Bowl 50 last month but Paltrow admitted she worries about keeping the kids grounded when they have such incredible experiences. "They were thrilled. They were very proud. It's pretty incredible. It's also a little weird that your first football game is that, so how do you also counteract that and instill that life is not that all the time?"
