Soy un idiota

HE may have sold 50 million records worldwide.

But Coldplay front man, Chris Martin has revealed he feels ‘like an idiot’ at home thanks to a lack of Spanish

Speaking to El Mundo the rock star explained that his wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow chats with their children Apple and Moses in Spanish, which he never understands.
“In my house everyone speaks Spanish because even Moses’ nanny is Spanish. So I’m the only idiot at home who doesn’t understand anything,” he said.

Paltrow is fluent in Spanish after doing a language exchange in Extremadura as a teenager and staying in close contact with the family.
