Chris Martin - Chris Martin Won The 'Lottery' When He Wed Gwyneth

Chris Martin has likened marrying Gwyneth Paltrow to "winning the lottery".

The Coldplay frontman confessed he had little romantic experience until he met the 'The Avengers' star, and he felt like a "loser" before they started dating in 2002.

He told 'CBS Sunday Morning' host Anthony Mason he had only been in "one serious relationship," adding "I'm in it".

He then said: "It's a big leap? What, from being a loser, to going out with an Oscar winner? It's a giant leap. Let's face it, it's like winning the lottery."

Chris married Gwyneth in 2003 and they have two children, Apple, seven, and Moses, five, together, which he says gives their lives more purpose.

He added: "It's made it more focused. And you have a purpose. I like what it does, just the idea of having to work hard so your kids are OK."

Gwyneth has been equally complimentary of her 'Paradise' singer husband, comparing him to Spanish artist Pablo Picasso.

She previously said: "He's a musical genius. It's like living with Picasso and being like, 'Should I make a little something-something?' "

Gwyneth and Chris are notoriously very private about their relationship, which she says is partly to protect his rock star image.

She added: "He makes music for his fans, and he doesn't want people to conjure a lame famous couple when they're getting into his music. I get it."
