Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Martin are 'happier than ever'

JENNIFER Lawrence and Chris Martin are "happier than ever."

The 24-year-old actress and the 38-year-old British rocker, who started dating last year, have reportedly been spending lots of "quality time" together since the Oscar winner recently wrapped up filming her upcoming film, 'Joy,' in Boston.

A source close to the couple, who were most recently spotted together in New York City last month, said: "Both have full plates and they like it that way. They see each other when they can, yet each continues to do their own thing. They respect each other immeasurably.

"[They] are happier than ever. They have been spending a lot of time together." 

The Coldplay frontman, who is said to be "romantic and thoughtful," has also been getting to know Jennifer's inner circle.

The insider told PEOPLE magazine: "He's made an effort to get to know her friends."

The duo are hoping to jet off on their first "relaxing vacation" together later this year once Jennifer completes shooting 'X-Men: Apocalypse' in Montreal, Canada alongside ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult.

Meanwhile, the 'Magic' hitmaker is still on good terms with his soon-to-be ex-wife Gwyneth Paltrow, with whom he has daughter Apple, 10, and son Moses, nine.

The 'Iron Man' actress, 42, has also moved on with 'Glee' co-creator Brad Falchuk, 44.
