Here are some shots from a few days ago of Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin out for a walk with her dog in Malibu. They’re not like Ben-Ana levels of PDA but there’s some affection here. That said, they’ve been together a lot longer than Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas. By Chris’s standards, considering he used to book it around the corner when he and Gwyneth Paltrow were married and the paparazzi showed up, this is his equivalent of Ben and Ana’s pap-walk romance.
Ben was seen the other day visiting Jennifer Garner’s but keeping his distance from his kids in observance of physical distancing. That’s all we know from pictures – maybe he is able to continue co-parenting per the usual schedule. This is another thing that lockdown has complicated. Sharing custody, in some cases, can be complicated. Of course there are many people out there who are consciously uncoupled but even in those situations, it’s not always smooth sailing. And then in cases when there are difficulties between exes, well, right now co-parenting is probably adding to an already stressful situation.
Gwyneth and Chris, obviously, are one of the OG consciously uncoupled celebrities. He’s self-isolating with Dakota and not with G and Brad, all of them together. Can you imagine though? If both couples were in quarantine together? After all, they all go on holiday together. Holiday, however, is not quarantine. You can roam around on holiday. Everyone’s in a good mood on holiday. There’s a start time and a definite end time to holiday. Nobody knows when quarantine will end. And no one is in a good mood. So … probably it wouldn’t be the same. If you’re quarantining apart, then, like Gwyneth and Chris, can you still maintain the co-parenting schedule? Or is Chris not able to go over and see the kids? How is this working for those of you who are in a co-parenting situation?
