Gwyneth Paltrow says husband Brad Falchuk has a lot of similarities with late dad: ‘I finally chose my dad’

Gwyneth Paltrow shared that her husband, Brad Falchuk, reminds her of her late father.

“He has things that were reminiscent of my dad. It’s like blue-eyed, Jewish, TV writer, with a heart of gold and a great sense of humor. I finally chose my dad,” she told People in an interview published Tuesday.

Falchuk, for his part, only seemed to appreciate the comparison, since he called her the “perfect wife.”

“If she loves you, she is your champion. You doing well feels as good to her as her doing well. She literally screams when she hears good news from someone,” he told the outlet.

Paltrow’s father, producer Bruce Paltrow, died from oral cancer complications in 2002.

The Goop founder, who wed the “Glee” co-creator in 2018, was previously married to ex-husband, Chris Martin. The two co-parent daughter Apple, 19, and son Moses, 17.

“I finally chose my dad,” Paltrow said.

Paltrow, 51, is also a stepmom to Falchuk’s two children from a previous marriage, daughter Isabella, 19, and son Brody, 17.

She further admitted to the outlet that learning how to step-parent children in a blended family was initially “hard,” but they’ve since gotten the hang of it.

“It’s hard, and it’s not intuitive, and nobody tells you how to do it. You just stick with it. Now, it’s one of the things that brings me the most happiness in my life,” she gushed.

The “Avengers” actress previously explained how she struggled with the idea of becoming the “archetypal evil stepmother.”

“I did find it really hard at first,” the health guru said in an Instagram Story in September. “You know? There’s no book on this. Nobody tells us what to do. And in fact, all of the existing media around what a stepmother is casts us in this evil, villainous light.”

Paltrow advised those going through a similar situation to “fully embody the idea that my step-kids were my kids.”

“I loved them just as much, and I gave them the same rules and boundaries and just kind of wholeheartedly went for it, the easier the whole thing got,” she added.
