We saw this coming!

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have separated, the Oscar winner announced today on her lifestyle website Goop.

In a post titled "Conscious Uncoupling", the actress details how the couple struggled to save their marriage but, in the end, decided it was best to call it quits.

    "It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separate, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," she writes.

    "We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner. Love, Gwyneth & Chris," the rest of the statement reads.

The news spread so quickly, the Goop site actually crashed!

We bet the highly publicized Vanity Fair tell-all that ultimately never got released did little to strengthen their union, considering it was rumored to detail all the blonde beauty's affairs!
