It looks like there's only been, and only will be, one woman for Chris Martin his entire life.

Us Weekly reported the Coldplay front man's marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow is the only serious relationship he's been in.

The 34-year-old told CBS Sunday Morning's Anthony Mason that going "from being a loser [with only a few girlfriends], to going out with an Oscar winner" is "a giant leap. Let's face it: it's like winning the lottery."

According to Radar Online, Martin and Paltrow married in 2003 and have two children together, daughter Apple, 7, and son Moses, 5.

Martin told Mason that being a father has definitely changed his priorities in life and motivated him to work harder.

"It's made it more focused. And you have a purpose," he said. "I like what it does. Just the idea of having to work hard so your kids are okay."

The full interview with Martin and his band will air October 16 at 9 a.m. EDT on CBS.
