Paltrow converting to Judaism

Gwyneth Paltrow is reportedly converting to Judaism.

The Iron Man actress - whose late father Bruce Paltrow was Jewish - is said to have decided to convert following her "conscious uncoupling" from husband Chris Martin, the New York Post newspaper's Page Six reports.

The 41-year-old star - who has daughter Apple, 10, and eight-year-old son Moses with Chris - will quietly convert after years of following Kabbalah, which originated in Judaism, and being pals with co-director of the Kabbalah Centre, Michael Berg.

Paltrow - whose mother Blythe Danner is a Christian - previously confessed that she was raised both Jewish and Christian, insisting it "was such a nice way to grow up".

Speaking about how her family came from a long line of influential East European rabbis in the past, she was quoted as saying: "Like, 17 generations of rabbis - you see, I really am a Jewish princess!"

Meanwhile, she's said to have revealed that she wants to raise her children in a Jewish environment, despite their father being Christian, and dubbed herself "the original Jewish mother".

She said previously: "Creating a meal for my family and friends, sitting together, eating, laughing and talking, that's when I'm happy.

"Oh my God, if you saw the amount of food that I do. I am the original Jewish mother."
