Martin and Paltrow move for health reasons

New parents Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are moving house, so they can be nearer their alternative health gurus in north London.

New parents Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are moving house, so they can be nearer their alternative health gurus in north London.

The couple, who became parents when Paltrow gave birth to baby daughter Apple in May, purchased a new €3.75m mansion in the city's trendy Belsize Park - just minutes away from their acupuncturist, ayurvedic medical adviser and their yoga teacher.

Friends say they were tired of getting stuck in traffic travelling from their current pad in Belgravia, west London to regular meetings with the gurus.

They are also planning to radically renovate the new house - giving it a €750,000 facelift - before they make the move in September.

Paltrow and Martin bought the house from Kate Winslet and Sam Mendes.
