The photo marked the first direct acknowledgement of the relationship on her social media channels since the pair began dating back in 2014. They had met four years earlier in 2010 on the set of "Glee," which Paltrow guest starred on multiple times. Falchuk, 46, was a co-creator of the show.

Paltrow shares two children, Apple, 12, and Moses, 10, with ex-husband, Chris Martin. The pair famously announced their "conscious uncoupling" (divorce) back in 2014 but have remained friends and have successfully worked out a dynamic co-parenting situation.

For its February issue, Paltrow told InStyle magazine that Martin is "at my house every single day. We have our own lives but we still have our family life."

"To this day, Chris would take a bullet for me," she continued. "I honestly think Chris and I have contributed something positive to the culture of divorce."
