Dakota Johnson is cool. She's the kind of person with an air of mystery and is a bit off-beat in the best way possible. And apparently, she's kind of person who is all-in when it comes to spending holidays with her boyfriend's ex-wife. We're talking modern family here and it's absolutely incredible that Dakota went to Gwyneth Paltrow's house for Thanksgiving dinner with her love, Chris Martin.

  • The fact that Dakota can spend holidays with her boyfriend's ex is a big deal and something to be celebrated.

    There are two really good reasons that Dakota should accompany Chris to Gwyneth's for Thanksgiving and that's Apple and Moses -- the kids Gwynnie and Chris have together. They are 14 and 12, respectively, and it's clear that Chris and Gwyneth continue to have a loving relationship though they are consciously uncoupled. Gwyneth has even said that Chris is like a brother to her. (A little odd, but OK.) They make divorce look good. And it can be good!

    And it's really fantastic that Dakota can look beyond it all and realize that they are a family and if she's going to be with Chris, he comes with his family.

  • Besides, who wouldn't want to spend Thanksgiving with these two?

    Gwyneth gets a lot of flak for being, well, Gwyneth (she has some GOOP-hating frenemies), but she's kind of a badass and doesn't let any of the negativity get to her. She goes on living her best life and that's certainly to be admired.

    We imagine Gwyneth and Dakota have a lot in common ... besides Chris. Both have famous parents. Both are into fashion. Both are actors. 

  • Gwyneth calls this her #modernfamily and it's clear she is welcoming Dakota into the mix.

    Gwyneth often shares pics of her two guys on social media with the hashtag #modernfamily. Chris is family and she is completely welcoming to Dakota as well. Which tells us a lot. Chris and Dakota are definitely in the "serious relationship" category (not that we needed more proof) and that Gwyneth must genuinely like her ex's lady love. 

  • The biggest question is if Dakota made anything for the meal.

    Did Dakota find a GOOP-approved recipe to make for the Falchuk/Paltrow/Martin family? Or was she a guest who offered to do all the cleanup so the host can relax after dinner?

    For some reason, we could imagine Dakota baking a pie, which during dessert Gwyneth would have declared the most delicious ever ... as everyone laughed and had the most joyful good time.

    Fairy tales can come true. This is the #modernfamily.
