Chris Martin and Dakota Johnson look loved-up as they put on a cosy display at Whitaker’s Peace and Development Initiative gala dinner in New York
They have been dating on-and-off for over two years.
And, Chris Martin, 42, and Dakota Johnson, 29, appeared to be more loved up than ever as they attended the Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative’s Place for Peace event at Gotham Hall in New York City, on Friday night.
The couple, who recently reignited their romance after a brief split over the summer, put on a cosy display as they sat together at the fundraiser.

Dakota – the daughter of actress Melanie Griffith, 61, and actor Don Johnson, 69 – softly placed a hand on Chris’ knee while they sat together – a sign their relationship is back on and going strong.
The actress looked pretty in a multicoloured bardot gown, with her brunette tresses styled into voluminous curl, and a pop of pink lipstick completing her flawless make-up look.
The event Whitaker Peace and Development Initiative brands itself as an organisation that ‘aims to promote the values of peace, reconciliation, and social development within communities impacted by conflict and violence.’
It was founded by namesake Forrest Whitaker, 58, who is referred to on the initiative’s website as an ‘artist, social activist, and UNESCO Special Envoy for Peace and Reconciliation’.

Dakota and Chris were reported to have ended their relationship back in June, but it seems to have been just a minor hiccup along the way as they were spotted together again in July.
The Peanut Butter Falcon star and the Yellow singer might owe their reunion to a surprising source: Chris’ ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow.
The Avengers: Endgame star reportedly urged the two to have another go at their relationship after their split in June.

Dakota and Chris were first linked back in December 2017, and were seemingly inseparable from then on.
He was previously married to Gwyneth from 2003 until their ‘conscious uncoupling’ in 2016.
The former couple share two children together: a 15-year-old daughter named Apple and a 13-year-old son named Moses.
