Gwyneth Paltrow Credits Hubby for Helping Her Overcome Postpartum Depression

Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin are definitely one of my favorite couples in Hollywood. We have been seeing and hearing a lot from Gwyneth because she has been promoting her latest flick “Country Song.”

Paltrow credits her very supportive husband for teaching her how to play the guitar.

"I can depend on him," Paltrow says. "He makes me laugh. He's really appreciative of me. You know, he makes me feel special."

She also tells the February issue of Good Housekeeping that it was her husband who recognized that she might be suffering from postpartum depression after having her second child.

"I felt like a zombie. I couldn't access my heart. I couldn't access my emotions. I couldn't connect," Paltrow told the mag. “It was terrible, it was the exact opposite of what had happened when Apple was born. With her, I was on cloud nine. I couldn't believe it wasn't the same. I just thought it meant I was a terrible mother and a terrible person."

"About four months into it, Chris came to me and said, 'Something's wrong. Something's wrong,' " Paltrow recalls. "I kept saying, 'No, no, I'm fine.' But Chris identified it, and that sort of burst the bubble."

She also says that the communication is the key to a healthy relationship. "I definitely have to coax things out of him when we talk. You know, he's British, so it's a different lexicon totally," Paltrow says. "But you have to communicate. Otherwise there's no relationship."

Recently, there were rumors that the two were actually divorcing but that couldn’t seem further from the truth. Hollyscoop staff actually saw the two in Las Vegas over the NY holiday and the two seemed very happy and in love. They were spotted dining at a restaurant with their kids and took the time to greet fans before they left. Their relationship seemed very real and not "Hollywood" like the rest.
