Dakota Johnson Turning Boyfriend, Ex-Married Man Into Husband? Yes!
Age is nothing but a number -- American Actress Dakota Jhonson, age 28, and her Coldplay frontman-boyfriend Chris Martin, age 41, are the living proof. The 13 years age difference hasn't stopped the lovebirds from gushing over each other.
The Fifty Shades of Grey actress could be looking into "upping the ante" with her new man after the pair were spotted getting matching tattoos. Likewise, her relationship with Chris - who was previously married to actress Gwyneth Paltrow - seems to have turned a new leaf after one of her parents admitted to having met Chris in person.
Is Dakota planning to make a husband out of a once-married man? Let's dig into the pair's dating history to make sense of it all!
Dating: Is Boyfriend, Chris Martin, Husband Material?
The 28-year-old Texas native hasn't always been as the lucky as she seems today when it comes to a relationship!
Before meeting her present boyfriend, Chris Martin, Dakota had a string of failed relationships. Actor Jordan Masterson, actor Jon Hamn, and musician Noah Gersh are the few names that have been linked with Fifty Shades of Grey star.

However, of all ex-boyfriends, her breakup with musician Matthew Hitt seems to have hit her the hardest. Dakota and Matthew called it quits in 2017, following two years of dating. Ruminating on the separation in 2017 Vogue interview, she said:
"S--t happens. I think I'm a little bit heartbroken all the time, even when I'm in a happy relationship."
Continuing her infatuation with musician boyfriends, she finally managed to strike gold with the frontman of British rock outfit Coldplay, Chris Martin.
Dakota - who has six half-siblings (two are from her mother’s side and four from her father's side) - met Chris in the late 2017 and the pair has been inseparable ever since.
As for their first-ever public sighting, Dakota and her boyfriend, Chris was photographed enjoying a splendid time at the beach in Malibu.

A few months later, they were spotted dining together at the SOHO House in West Hollywood. Soon after, media began referring to them as an item.
However, it would take an industry insider (actress Diane Keaton) to confirm the dating rumors. Diane - who had attended Ellen DeGeneres' birthday party alongside Chris and Dakota - spilled the beans in an interview. She said:
"I'm gonna talk about Chris Martin. He was with Dakota, right? They're a couple. Got it? So, what I'm saying is."
Despite their year-long courtship, neither has publicly acknowledged being each other's love interest. This elusive nature of their relationship is reflected in their life in public as they have opted not to attend industry events as a couple.

That said, in the latest interview with Tatler Magazine, the 28-year-old Texas native insinuated that she and Chris are a real thing. All she wants her fans to know is that she's happy with the current arrangement.
Boyfriend Chris Martin Meets Her Parents
Her admittance comes after the surfacing of speculations which suggested that her romance with Chris has landed in troubled waters. And at the center of their rumored split - according to the speculations - was the disapproval of her boyfriend, Chris by the Fifty Shades Of Grey actress' parents; her father to be more specific.
In the end, the rumors turned out to be - like every other rumor in Hollywood - just a rumor. It was Dakota's father, Don Dakota, who cleared the negative air surrounding the couple's romance. Speaking to The Sun in January of 2018, he said:
"He's a lovely guy. I've met him and you want your kids happy, no matter what shape it takes."
Apparently, it was her father's previous interview which has initially sparked the split rumors.
If you didn't know, both of Dakota's parents are industry veterans who have acted in over 50 films between them. Her mother, Melanie Griffith has a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress and an Academy Award nomination to her name.
