Over the weekend, Gwyneth Paltrow dropped some surprising (and heartbreaking) news.

The mama of Apple, 8, and Moses, 6, revealed to Mail on Sunday’s You magazine that her third pregnancy — sadly — resulted in a miscarriage that nearly killed her. Despite the fact that she came forward and shared her story, Goop isn’t admitting the details on exactly what happened or exactly how her pregnancy resulted in a devastating health scare.

She did tell the mag, “I had a really bad experience when I was pregnant with my third. 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?'”

But still, the star hasn’t stopped thinking about expanding her beautiful brood — and neither have her two kids! She admitted, “My children ask me to have a baby all the time. And you never know, I could squeeze one more in. I am missing my third. I’m thinking about it.” Regardless of what the future has in store for the Paltrow-Martin family, one thing is for sure: when it comes to husband, Gwyneth insists she got the cream of the crop in husband (and Coldplay frontman!) Chris Martin. “Regardless of what happens in our marriage, I chose the best father,” adding that her husband is “so good to the children and to know that you had kids with such a good man is a real weight off you. We are committed co-parents, we make all the decisions together and lean on each other for support.”

So who knows if the successful parents will add another to the mix. Nearly a year ago, the Hollywood mama admitted that she’d “love to” have another baby, but also said she didn’t know if she could “go back to diapers and things like that.”

“I’m so past that,” she said, “I think I may have missed the window. I think maybe when Moses was three I could have done it… but now he’s six and such a guy, I feel like I’m out of the baby phase.”

She did leave it on the table, though, saying, “If it happens, it happens.” And she’s 100 percent right! If it happens for her, it happens, and if it doesn’t, she’s got two incredible kids and an incredible husband, to boot!
