Martin, 42, and Johnson, 29, maintained a very private relationship during their time together, during which they never publicly confirmed their romance or hit a red carpet together.

The couple was last photographed together in November. In October, Johnson simply said, "I am very happy," when asked about her love life, which came one month after she and Martin reportedly got matching tattoos.

Martin shares two children, Apple and Moses, with ex-wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, from whom he "consciously uncoupled" in 2014. Just last week, the goop founder did an interview with the Sunday Times in which she was asked about Johnson.

"I adore her," Paltrow told the Times. "[She's] a fantastic woman."

In April, she posed alongside Johnson at mutual friend Derek Blasberg's birthday party.

Johnson and Martin have not responded to reports that they've ended their relationship after nearly two years.
