Gwyneth Paltrow loved being quarantined with Brad Falchuk. The 48-year-old founder of Goop appeared on the Today program on Thursday, revealing that her time in quarantine has improved thanks to her husband of two years.
Paltrow and Falchuk, 50, married in 2018, but didn’t move in together until a year later. Less than a year after finally combining households, the couple, along with much of the world, were in quarantine amid the current COVID-19 pandemic.
“It was unbelievable,” he said of the quarantine with Falchuk. “I married the right guy. He’s the best. There’s no one better to stay with.”
During part of that time in quarantine, Paltrow tested positive for COVID-19. Although she still has persistent symptoms from time to time, she said she is much better.
“Sometimes they come back a little bit, but I think I’m getting better and better,” he said. “It’s been pretty crazy though. It’s been pretty wild. I’m not going to lie.”
In addition to Falchuk, Paltrow enjoyed spending her time in confinement with both her and her husband’s children. Paltrow shares 16-year-old Apple and 15-year-old Moses with her ex-husband, Chris Martin, while Falchuk is Isabella and Brody’s father from a previous relationship.
“It was for the best,” Paltrow said. “There are some deep positives to these crazy 12 months. That time with the kids has definitely been at the top of the list.”
In fact, Paltrow decided to partner with his daughter for Goop’s latest product launch.
“She was kind of part of the product development process,” Paltrow said. “And when she came out, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. Should I let her appear in the picture or not?’ She wanted to be in the photo, so we decided to leave her. “
In addition to appearing in the photos, Apple starred in a fun TikTok video to promote the product, in which she poked fun at her mother’s morning routine.
“That’s what he does all the time!” Paltrow said with a laugh. “Constantly.”
As for whether Apple or Moses will follow in their footsteps, when it comes to being an actor or entrepreneur – Paltrow said they’re still figuring it out.
“I think my two kids are like, ‘We don’t want to think about what we want to do. We just want to see what happens,'” she said.
