Gwyneth Paltrow’s Parents Are Hollywood Royalty – Here’s What to Know
Gwyneth Paltrow‘s name has become synonymous with both Hollywood’s A-list and the contemporary wellness industry, but did you know that she’s actually a nepo baby? Gwyneth’s mother is Blythe Danner, who starred in “Meet the Parents” and “Will & Grace,” among many other well-known projects. Her father, Bruce Paltrow, was a director and producer who happened to also be best friends with Steven Spielberg (Paltrow’s godfather, per People). Gwyneth, to her credit, has seemingly wholeheartedly embraced the nepo baby title; when InStyle posted a photo of Hailey Bieber wearing her “nepo baby” T-shirt, Paltrow wittily commented “I might need a few of these.”
Her parents first met while working on a Broadway show in 1969, per People. They tied the knot in 1970 and welcomed Gwyneth in 1972 and her brother Jake in 1975. Gwyneth, of course, went on to follow in her mother’s footsteps, becoming a megastar and later launching her company Goop. She also was married to Chris Martin from 2003 to 2014, and the two share two children: Apple and Moses. Meanwhile, Gwyneth’s brother Jake is also an actor, writer, and director.
