Chris Martin says if it weren't for Coldplay, he would never have met his wife

Chris Martin has said that if Coldplay never made it, he would never have met his wife, or even have had a girlfriend.

In an interview with USA Today, he opens up about his marriage to actress Gwyneth Paltrow, which he is normally very private about:

"I wouldn't even have a girlfriend if I wasn't in this band. I'm so grateful for my job; it's given me everything I have".

The couple got married in 2003 and have two children, Apple (7) and Moses (5). The 34-year-old says that he is quite happy to allow Paltrow look after their celebrity side of things:

"Maybe it's an English thing, but I prefer trying to keep quiet and out of the way. I'm happy for my wife to be the famous one. She's doing awesomely, and I'm very proud".
