Los Angeles - Chris Martin bought Gwyneth Paltrow a painting as a parting present to mark the "new stage" in their lives.

The Oscar-winning actress and the Coldplay frontman, who tied the knot in 2003 and have daughter Apple, nine, and son Moses, seven, together, have had an extremely amicable end to their marriage.

He gifted her with the image of a "bird in flight", painted by Mila Fürstová, who has created the artwork for the band's sixth studio album Ghost Stories.

A source told the Mail Online website: "Chris has even given Gwyneth a present to mark this new stage, a painting of a bird in flight by Mila Fürstová. It's beautiful."

News of Gwyneth and Chris ending their 10-year marriage came as were on vacation on the island of Eleuthera in the Bahamas, reports LaineyGossip, and they are hoping to "enjoy being friends" and want Apple and Moses to know that they're still a family.

The source added: "Going away together may seem unusual but that's Gwyneth and Chris.

"Foremost they want the kids to see they mean business about remaining a family, and another ... they want to miss the fallout.

"It might sound like a line that they're happier than they've ever been but the relief is massive, they can enjoy being friends again now.

"It's like all the tensions have finally dispersed, the stress of arguing about where to live. She missed Los Angeles and he's an English boy through and through so that seemed like an eternal battle.

"They're communicating again, they're having a glass of wine together and a laugh and were actually looking forward to the holiday."
