The children of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin

These days, the actress keeps a low profile. Most of all, she and her ex-partner Chris Martin, the father of her two children, have shielded their privacy as much as possible.

In fact, it was the second time Gwyneth Paltrow was on the podcast, after being a guest in March 2019. It may have been the confidence of this repeated visit that gave her the confidence to discuss something she had never talked about before.

'We almost died'

It was 14 May 2004 and Apple's delivery was so complicated that her mother almost died. "I had two caesareans [C-sections]," she said in the podcast. "My daughter was an emergency [C-section], it was crazy, we almost died. It was, like, not good."

Although the show's listeners and presenters wanted more details, Gwyneth Paltrow left it at that. She only said that there was a "big scar across my body" which reminds her of what happened on 14 May 2004.

The big question

Gwyneth Paltrow wondered "what women are supposed to look like" after giving birth. In addition, she is grateful that "there wasn't Instagram when I had babies." Paltrow believes she would have been criticised for not fitting in with the beauty standards.

No washboard stomach

"If I see someone [say], 'Oh I just gave birth two weeks ago and I have a completely washboard stomach,' ... I'm like, wow that's not what I [looked like]," the actress said wryly.

Happy with her scar

While such cases are not the norm, they are often presented as the example to follow. "Great, more power to the lady with the washboard [abs]," she says, "but that is totally the exception and then now we're being fed all of these other images of what we're supposed to look like all the time — babies, no babies, whatever."

'Past perfectionism'

For Gwyneth Paltrow, these standards are "past perfectionism" and she hopes that, little by little, situations like hers will become normalised. She added, "I think women really need to be friends with each other."
