Gwyneth Paltrow moving in to $4.9 million home with partner

GWYNETH Paltrow is reportedly moving in with her boyfriend Brad Falchuk in a new home she has bought in Santa Barbara.

The 'Iron Man 3' actress had been living in the same neighbourhood as ex husband Chris Martin since they split in 2014, but she has now bought a $4.9 million property an hour away from her former spouse in Santa Barbara, and her TV producer boyfriend will be sharing the four-bedroom house with her.

A source said: "Of course she and Chris will always be in each other's lives because of their children, but she thinks of this house as a fresh start.

"Even though she's not buying it with Brad, he's moving in and it'll be 'their' place."

Gwyneth decided to make the move now she and the Coldplay frontman - who have children Apple, 11, and Moses, 10 together - have taken steps to officially bring their marriage to an end.

The source told heat magazine: "The timing just feels right for Gwyneth. She's been emotionally ready to move on from Chris for a long time.

"With the divorce papers finally signed, a year after she filed them, that's what makes her feel like now was the time to put a bit of physical distance between her and Chris."

Meanwhile, Gwyneth, 43, recently admitted she went through a "massive software upgrade" when she turned 40.

She said: "At 40, my life changed so much. I think every woman around that time gets this massive software upgrade. You're just different. You're upgraded.

"For me there were just a bunch of changes I had to make to really be true to myself and really live my happiness. And you have to be brave and make the choice to do that, to truly accept yourself and love yourself and really forgive yourself for your mis-steps.

"So it's been a long interesting road to get to the place where I feel really content and that I really know myself and like myself. I wish they could teach girls to do this when they are 16 instead of 40, but that's part of life."
