Keep your friends close, and your estranged husband's girlfriends closer! Two months after Chris Martin started dating Jennifer Lawrence, the Coldplay singer's ex, Gwyneth Paltrow, is ready to meet her former love's current flame. The Goop founder, 42, wants to get to know the Hunger Games star, 24, a source reveals exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly.
"She'd like to spend a little time with her and thinks they'd probably get along," the insider tells Us of Paltrow, who split from Martin, 37, in March, and has remained on friendly terms with him in the months since. (Case in point: He purchased a home right across the street from hers, and hosted a birthday party in her honor at his new abode.)
The source adds that the Shakespeare in Love actress is "fine" with her ex's romance with Lawrence but would like him to wait a bit before introducing her to their kids, daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, 8. "Gwyneth wants to be sure about her," the source says.
That said, what Paltrow does know about her fellow blonde Oscar winner is good. "Her take is, 'Hey, he could do worse,'" a second insider previously told Us. "She just wants him to be happy."
He is indeed that. A third insider told Us in September that the British musician has "fallen in love" with Lawrence. "It's the real deal," the source said of their relationship. Find out more details about the new couple here.
