The usually private Coldplay singer has gushed about his A-list other half in an interview
It’s very rare to hear private pair Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin speak out about their relationship, but that’s exactly what Coldplay frontman Chris has done in a brand new interview.
The actor opened up on his seven-year union with the Hollywood actress during an chat on US show CBS Sunday Morning yesterday, comparing marrying Ms Paltrow to ‘winning the lottery’.
When asked by show host Anthony Mason about rumours he had only had ‘one serious relationship’, the shy singer replied: ‘That’s right. I’m in it.’
And when Mason pointed out that marrying his first serious girlfriend just a year later was ‘pretty unusual’ and ‘quite a leap,’ Chris retorted: ‘It’s a giant leap!’
‘It’s a big leap? What, from being a loser, to going out with an Oscar winner?‘ he laughed.
‘It’s a giant leap. Let’s face it; it’s like winning the lottery.’
And it wasn’t just his wife Chris was happy to wax lyrical about – the unusually relaxed singer also opened up on two children Apple, seven, and five-year-old Moses, revealing they make him ‘more focused’ in his work.
‘It’s made it more focused,’ he said. ‘And you have a purpose. I like what it does. Just the idea of having to work hard so your kids are okay.’
