Gwyneth Paltrow's family of four was almost a family of five.
The Oscar winning-actress reveals for the first time in a new interview with The Mail on Sunday's You magazine that she had a miscarriage.
Paltrow, who has a daughter Apple, 8, and son Moses, 6, has been married to Coldplay singer Chris Martin since 2003.
"I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third," she says, not mentioning when the tragedy happened. "It didn't work out and I nearly died. So I am like, 'Are we good here or should we go back and try again?'"
Still, she admits that Apple and Moses would love to have a sibling.
"My children ask me to have a baby all the time," explains the 40-year-old. "And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I'm thinking about it."
Paltrow also uses the interview to rave about Martin as a father.
"To know that you had kids with such a good man is a real weight off you," she says. "We are committed co-parents, we make all the decisions together and lean on each other for support."
