Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson have reportedly split after nearly two years together
The news of their breakup comes just a few months after another source revealed the former couple were thinking about getting married
Coldplay singer Chris Martin and 'Fifty Shades of Grey' actress Dakota Johnson have reportedly broken up after dating for almost two years.
The 42-year-old Coldplay frontman reportedly told his friends that he is single after he allegedly split with his 29-year-old girlfriend, according to The Sun.
"Chris [Martin] and Dakota [Johnson] were very easygoing and always seemed really happy together. There was talk of engagement but now he says they have gone their separate ways, which has come as a real surprise to everyone."
The news of their breakup comes just a few months after another source told The Sun that the former couple was thinking about getting married. "They will probably get married. It’s serious. Chris (likes that) she doesn’t thrive on the spotlight and is very understated," the source had said.
In December 2018, Us Weekly revealed that a source told them that Martin was "head over heels" in love with the actress and will be getting engaged. The source also revealed that he wanted to wait till his ex-wife Gwenyth Paltrow gets married to TV producer Brad Falchuk before he could take his next big step with Johnson.
"He wanted to make sure the kids didn’t have too much change all at once," the source said. "He's a great dad," the source added.
Martin and Paltrow, who were married for 13 years, split in 2014 are parents daughter Apple who is 15 years old and son Moses who is 13 years old.
The Coldplay frontman and the 'Fifty Shades of Grey' actress began dating in October 2017. Paltrow and Falchuk, the well-known TV producer, got married in September 2018 in the Hamptons.
Meanwhile, in 2018, Martin and Johnson were rumored to be pregnant after a TMZ source revealed that blue and pink balloons were spotted at Martin's house. Those rumors were declined by a representative of the actress who told People that the balloons were for Johnson's birthday party.
A few days after the rumors arose, Johnson herself appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and denied the rumors saying, "The only thing I'm pregnant with is a lot of really good ideas, but not any babies."
"It was my birthday and there were balloons that happened to be pink and blue and so then I was pregnant,” she went on to explain. "I didn’t know that the balloons were gonna be released. They were just in an arch, but I guess that accidentally happened... One of the ends just got let go.”
