Paltrow interviewed Pitt for her Goop website earlier this year and shared a heartfelt moment she had with her father when she was engaged to Pitt.
She shared: “His eyes full of tears, and he said, ‘You know, I never really realised what they mean when they say you’re gaining a son. Like, I’m gaining a son’.”
After two years together Pitt proposed in December 1997, describing the moment as “one of the greatest” in his life.
However this would be short-lived as their relationship suddenly began to unravel.
Paltrow reportedly got cold feet and being just 25 at the time was concerned that she was too young to settle down.
