Academy Award-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow and her estranged husband Chris Martin spent Valentine's Day together on the beach in Malibu, California, with their children.

In some of the pictures published by Daily Mail, the 42-year-old Shakespeare in Love actress was seen holding the Coldplay frontman's arm as they walked along the sandy shores, with their two children, ten-year-old daughter Apple and son Moses, aged eight.

Last year in March, Paltrow posted a message titled 'Conscious Uncoupling' on her lifestyle website, GOOP, announcing that she and Martin are separating, after 10 years of marriage.

"Nobody knew what Chris and I had been going through," she recently told Marie Claire Australia, according to Daily Mail. "[We went through] a year of quiet separation."

The Iron Man star revealed that she turned to Mortdecai co-star Johnny Depp for advice, when the couple's relationship started to fall apart.

"I didn't say 'Hey, this is what's happening,' but I did ask him mostly children-centric questions. Like, 'How is it on them?' and 'How did you do it?'" she added.

Last year in July, during an interview with the Valentine in the Morning radio show, Martin opened up about his relationship with Paltrow post-split and said: "The thing we told everyone at the beginning of the year is true. We are very close. We are not together. But we're, you know, that's the truth and that's it. You know, there's a lot of love. No scandal, I'm afraid. I wish I could give you scandal."
