Gwyneth, 49, shared: “Okay, since it’s almost Father’s Day, I’m going to ask you about Bruce.

Like “I’m having a son.”
She then asked Brad, “What influence did he have on you? Why did you love him, even though we’re not married unfortunately.’
Brad, who later married Jennifer Aniston and then Angelina Jolie, replied, “Yeah, that’s right. [Laughs.] Oh man, everything will be fine, won’t it?’
Gwyneth then referred to her current husband Brad Falchuk and added: ‘Yeah, that’s right. I finally found the Brad I would marry. It only took me 20 years to do it.’

“He has paved the way for you to be who you are. And I think that’s so important to parenting, you know? So the child is free to find out who it is and what it likes and what it does’.’
Reminiscing about his relationship with Gwyneth and her father, Brad also revealed, “We always wanted to hear his opinion, but there was an honesty that I really appreciated. I think that struck a chord with me.’
When asked by Gwyneth if Brad felt “parental energy from him,” he replied: One hundred percent. I felt the same kind of guidance you would get from a coach or a mentor.’
Gwyneth added: Me too. I mean, he was my father, but most of all he was a mentor. He loved playing that part for the people he really loved, and you were definitely one of them.”
