Coldplay frontman Chris Martin may be a rock star, but his kids help keep his ego in check.
“We played Wembley Stadium and I was like, ‘Wow, we are big rock stars.’ But at six o’clock in the morning the kids were like, ‘Get me some pancakes.’ And I was like, ‘Oh, am I a rock star?’ Chris, who has kids Apple and Moses with his wife Gwyneth Paltrow tells The Mirror. “But that’s what hopefully keeps your music real.”
Chris isn’t the only one with kids to keep him grounded – his band mates Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckley and Will Champion are all fathers as well.
“Just at the point where you would have got really big egos, we all have these little people who we are all responsible for and they keep us focused on what is really important in life,” the singer says.
