Chris Martin joked that he 'forced' his 15-year-old daughter Apple and 13-year-old son Moses (from his decade-long marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow) to sing on the track Orphans from Coldplay's eighth studio album Everyday Life.

'Well, we've always kind of forced our children to work,' the 42-year-old frontman and pianist deadpanned to Radio.com on Friday.

'We really appreciate the Victorian times of young British children getting an honest day's pay. Whenever we're on tour, any of the kids that are around, we'll drag them on stage for something or other.'

In all seriousness, Chris paid his teenagers 'properly' for the Orphans recording session, which also featured 11 other back-up singers.

'They're so sweet about it,' Martin gushed.

'Of course I'm biased, but I really like listening to them. So to me, they made the song sound great.'

The Exeter-born Englishman and the 47-year-old Oscar winner and Goop founder finalized their divorce in 2016 after 'consciously uncoupling' in 2014.
