Turns out celebrities aren’t immune from humiliating their teenagers. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin shared an adorable story on The Ellen DeGeneres Show about how he accidentally embarrassed his 15-year-old daughter, Apple.
It all started when Chris decided to visit his daughter at her very first job.
“My daughter works in a clothing store,” the singer shared with Ellen DeGeneres. “This is her first job and she’s about to be 16 and I’m so proud of her. She’s, you know, making her way in the world. And I didn’t tell her, but I went to surprise her… And I thought, ‘I better buy something.’ So I took a t-shirt from the rack and I lined up in the queue. And she was at the checkout… And she saw me.”
The moment his daughter, whom he shares with ex Gwyneth Paltrow, spotted him in line, she mouthed, “Dad, get out.”
“I was holding my t-shirt, and really scared of my daughter…” said Chris Martin.
The proud papa immediately felt “terrible” and tried to make things right.
“So, I moved to the other line. I was holding my t-shirt and really scared of my daughter,” he continued. “And I paid for the t-shirt and I’d brought her some fudge…she loves this candy fudge. So, I said to the lady, ‘Could you give this to my daughter?’ And as I was leaving she shouted, ‘I love you dad.'”
How sweet is this superstar dad? We’re guessing he’ll think twice before paying this hard-working teen another visit. And also: We can relate. Teens, man!
