Gwyneth Paltrow spends birthday with Jay-Z and Beyonce

Gwyneth Paltrow and her rocker husband Chris Martin enjoyed a double date with Jay-Z and a pregnant Beyonce on Monday (26Sep11) to celebrate the Hollywood actress' 39th birthday.

The superstar couples met up for a low-key meal at new Spanish restaurant Tertulia in New York on the eve of Paltrow's big day (27Sep11).

The Shakespeare In Love beauty was back to business on Tuesday, taking her daughter Apple to school early in the morning, but she took a moment to thank friends and fans on her Twitter.com blog for all of their kind messages.

Paltrow wrote, "Thank you for all of my happy birthday wishes, just read so many. You guys make my life great."
