Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest issue of Goop has something new — and no, it’s not yet another suggestion that readers stuff rocks up their vaginas for better sex.
Well, that might be in there too, for all we know. But the big story, as you’ll see in the video below, is …
Gwyneth Patlrow and Brad Falchuk confirm are confirming their engagement!
Back in November, we told you that Gwyneth Paltrow and Brad Falchuk are engaged.
Gwyneth Paltrow is, of course, a legendary actress who’s also more than dabbled in … what’s a nice word for quackery? Let’s go with “self-help” and “wellness,” through her Goop magazine.
Brad Falchuk is an unnecessarily handsome writer who’s been a fellow creative and even co-creator on a number of Ryan Murphy projects, from Glee to Scream Queens to American Horror Story.
Their cozy romance has warmed even our cold hearts a time or two, including when Gwyneth and Brad showed off an actually good Halloween costume.
Couples costumes can say a lot about the couple themselves.
When we reported that the couple was engaged, that was a little over a month ago and it was based upon, well, other reports.
They hadn’t made an official announcement.
Now, though, Gwyneth and Brad have come forward with an official announcement: they’re engaged.
They made their announcement in the newest issue of Goop, because of course they did.
Good Morning America reported the couple’s statement.
“We feel incredibly lucky to have come together at this juncture in our lives, when our collective successes and failures can serve as building blocks for a healthy and happy relationship.”
That statement is almost normal for Gwyneth.
Compared to her “conscious uncoupling” from ex, Chris Martin, it sounds like what a non-bonkers person would say in their announcement.
(Though we wonder if there’s some sort of special, weird, New Age significance to “juncture in our lives” and “building blocks” but … let’s try to give them the benefit of the doubt)
As a public figure, Gwyneth is often disliked by people who are tired of her Goop.
(She thinks people only dislike her because she’s a woman, but misogyny is, for once, not the primary source of ire)
But she must be very likable in person, because Brad Falchuk’s clearly fallen for her.
(No, we don’t just think that he’s there for the great, Goop-approved anal sex)
Gwyneth and Brad reportedly discussed the possibility of engagement for at least a year before they decided to actually take that step.
It’s so good that they decided to wait. A lot of people fall in love and think that it’s forever, and rush into a doomed marriage.
But Gwyneth and Brad have both been in very lengthy relationships — and even marriages — before.
This isn’t their first rodeo, so they considered things carefully.
And, as Good Morning America reveals, deciding that they should consciously couple was about one thing in particular.
.. Where to go out to dinner?
Well, more accurately, about what sort of things they can see themselves arguing about when they’re 90.
Which they imagine will still be about where to go out for dinner.
We hope that things go well for them. Sometimes, what’s a playful argument during your first few years of a relationship can grow old and bitter when you’re decades older.
