Chris Martin: I’m not husband material
Chris Martin doesn’t think he’s husband material.
The Coldplay frontman – who has recently been linked to ‘Peaky Blinders’ actress Annabelle Wallis – has admitted he is struggling to adjust to the single life following his divorce from Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow.
Chris – whose divorce was finalised earlier this year – joked: "No one wants to marry me."
The rock star – who shares a 12-year-old daughter called Apple and a 10-year-old son called Moses with his ex-wife – said, tongue in cheek, that he had to "trick" Gwyneth into marrying him back in 2003.
He told KIIS FM: "I’m just not really nice. I fooled one person once."
Chris and Gwyneth famously announced they were "conscious uncoupling" back in 2014, but have since remained on good terms and are even reported to be planning to move back to London in the near future.
The duo have made a mutual decision to return to the UK for the sake of their two children.
A source recently said: "They’re horrified by Donald Trump’s election and feel it’s a damning indictment of the current state of America.
"Their children’s education is extremely important to them and they’re in agreement that the English school system is better.
"On top of that, Gwyneth misses her friends in London and Chris is keen for the kids to be closer to his parents in Devon."
Chris and Gwyneth are said to have already discussed the prospect of buying adjoining properties in north London’s upmarket Hampstead, but they will continue to spend their summers in Los Angeles.
Yet their plan is somewhat complicated by Gwyneth’s relationship with producer Brad Falchuk.
The insider explained: "They both have the resources to make things work long distance and Gwyneth would still be back and forth with work commitments.
"As a sweetener, she’s invited Brad to share their family Christmas with the kids in Malibu, after he was conspicuous by his absence at Thanksgiving.
"Gwyneth is keen to go the distance with Brad but family come first and she doesn’t want her kids growing up in a country as divided and hostile as America has become."
