Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin: A Timeline Of Their Relationship

Dakota Johnson and Coldplay's Chris Martin are reportedly dating again, despite claims they called things off last month.

A source told E! that "they're planning to spend more time together later this summer.", after Us Weekly spotted the pair at the Covers wrap party together last week [July 31]. Chris also joined Dakota at her The Peanut Butter Falcon premiere on Thursday. Could a re-coupling be on the cards?

According to earlier reports, the pair decided to break up in June over their differing views of the future - Chris is allegedly keen to start a family with Dakota, while she reportedly isn't ready to have children.

The Sunday Express reports, "Chris made it clear that he wants more kids as soon as possible but Dakota's career has really taken off and that's the last thing she wanted to think about right away.

"It got to the point, last month, where a light seemed to flick on in both their heads and they realised they were pulling in completely opposite directions - so they decided to call it a day."

A source at The Sun added of their split after 18 months, "Chris and Dakota were very easygoing and always seemed really happy together. There was talk of engagement but now he says they have gone their separate ways, which has come as a real surprise to everyone."

Check out their relationship timeline below:

10 October, 2017: Rumours start a-swirling when Chris (who was previously rumoured to be dating Jennifer Lawrence after his split from Gwyneth) and Dakota (who previously dated The Drowners singer Matthew Hitt) are spotted eating sushi in Los Angeles.

A source tells People the pair are "cozy, laughing and affectionate". Cute!

15 November, 2017: Well, well, well, what do you know? Dakota (28 at the time) reportedly flies to Argentina to watch Chris, 40, perform with Coldplay. A 50 Shades fan site shares a picture on Twitter of Dakota very much looking like a VIP in the sound booth of the Buenos Aires arena.

13 December, 2017: Another source tells Entertainment Tonight that Dakota and Chris have been dating for around two months, which actually fits with the timings of their reported sushi date in October.

"They spend most nights hanging out at his house and laying low," the source says. "His friends already love her and see how happy she makes him."

19 December, 2017: Mail Online publishes pictures showing Dakota and Chris at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris together. Though they appear to have arrived in the same car, they exit the vehicle separately (presumably to try and stop the press writing headlines suggesting they've confirmed their romance - oh, wait).

16 January, 2018: Though nothing is still confirmed at this point, Dakota and Chris are pictured arm in arm walking on a beach in Malibu, California. A source tells E! News they spent two days at the beach along with Dakota's dog and the actress had "her head on his shoulder and was leaning into him. They stopped to gaze out at the water and look for dolphins". While there's a chance this source might not be a mindreader, the premise is very romantic.

23 January, 2018: Don Johnson stumbles into embarrassing Dad territory when he tells Digital Spy at the National Television Awards (NTAs) the rumoured relationship between his daughter Dakota and Chris is "troubling".

We're pretty sure he's joking as he immediately follows up with: "No, she's a big girl, she can handle herself."

12 February 2018: The couple are spotted holding hands at Ellen DeGeneres' star-studded 60th birthday party. They are seen chatting to Drew Barrymore, as you do, while Chris' ex Gwyneth was also there with her now-husband Brad Falchuck. While this may seem excruciatingly awkward, Gwyneth and Chris seem to get on super well post-divorce, with the Goop founder even sharing an Instagram of Chris and Brad enjoying breakfast together in November last year.

10 May, 2018: After Don's intervention, it is the turn of Dakota's actress mother Melanie Griffith to wade in, telling People she "adores" Chris at an event.

"I adore him," she says. "But she is very private about her life and I respect that."

29 July 2018: The relationship appears to have been elevated to the double date level after Dakota and Chris are reportedly seen at a Radiohead gig in Boston with Breaking Bad actor Aaron Paul and his wife, Lauren.

5 September, 2018: Well, this escalated quickly. It's reported in September that Dakota and Chris have matching infinity symbol tattoos. Within a few days of both being photographed - separately, of course - the distinctive tattoos can be seen on both of their forearms. Interestingggg.

26 September, 2018: We have confirmation, people! The 29-year-old actress graces the cover of Tatler. In her interview with the magazine, she is asked about her rumoured beau and gives a sweet, yet coy, response.

"I'm not going to talk about it," she says, according to E! "But I am very happy."

Well, that's something.

8 October, 2018: Dakota is forced to deny she is pregnant with Chris Martin's baby after TMZ claims the couple threw a gender reveal party where pink and blue balloons were spotted floating above Chris' LA home.

Her representative clarifies to People that actually Dakota was actually having a birthday party (she turned 29 on 4 October). Her mum and dad, plus Julia Roberts and Sean Penn, are all spotted arriving at the house, suggesting she had one hell of a bash.

17 Jun, 2019: Dakota and Chris have reportedly called off their relationship due to their differing views of the future - Chris is allegedly keen to start a family with Dakota, while she reportedly isn't ready to have children.

The Sunday Express reports, "Chris made it clear that he wants more kids as soon as possible but Dakota's career has really taken off and that's the last thing she wanted to think about right away.

"It got to the point, last month, where a light seemed to flick on in both their heads and they realised they were pulling in completely opposite directions - so they decided to call it a day."

A source at The Sun added of their split after 18 months, "Chris and Dakota were very easygoing and always seemed really happy together. There was talk of engagement but now he says they have gone their separate ways, which has come as a real surprise to everyone."
