Paltrow: I almost died during pregnancy

Gwyneth Paltrow has said that she almost died during her third pregnancy.

The 40-year-old actress was expecting a third child with husband Chris Martin, after having children Apple, eight and Moses, six, but revealed she lost the baby and her own life was in danger as a result of complications.

She told The Mail On Sunday's You Magazine: “My children ask me to have a baby all the time.

“And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it.

“I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. It didn’t work out and I nearly died.

“So I am like: ‘Are we good here or should we go back and try again?’”

Paltrow also praised her Coldplay frontman husband's parenting skills and revealed they rely on each other for support.

She explained: “To know that you had kids with such a good man is a real weight off you.

“We are committed co-parents, we make all the decisions together and lean on each other for support.”
