Gwyneth Paltrow decided to spice things up for her 39th birthday.

On Monday, the Oscar winner and her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, 34, enjoyed an intimate dinner at Tertulia, a new Spanish restaurant in NYC's West Village.

The spouses of nearly eight years were joined by expectant parents Beyonce, 30, and Jay-Z, 41. But Paltrow -- who released her first cookbook, My Father's Daughter, in April -- didn't stay out too late.

The Contagion actress was spotted taking her daughter Apple, 7, to school the following morning in Manhattan.

"Thank you for all of my happy birthday wishes, just read so many," Paltrow tweeted Tuesday. "You guys make my life great."
