We may not see Coldplay’s Chris Martin and his Oscar winner wife, Gwyneth Paltrow out together much but the rocker joked about the couple’s decade long relationship on The Ellen Degeneres Show!

In an attempt to get Chris to dish about his marriage to Gwyneth, Ellen said:

“You have a great relationship and two precious kids. And we love Gwyneth.”

Trying to hold back laughter Chris joked with Ellen: “She’s been a great beard for me now, for 10 years.”

Chris, who apperared alongside his fellow Coldplay band-mate, Jonny Buckland, added: 

“I think a lot of people like me and Jonny join bands because we were really not doing so well.”

Ellen quickly asked, “with women?” and Chris replied, “with anybody.” Do you wish Gwyneth and Chris were seen together more often or do you think it’s a good idea to keep the relationship private? Sound off in the comments!
