Even celebrity dads can be embarrassing! Chris Martin appears on Wednesday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show where he opens up about accidentally cramping his teenage daughter, Apple's, style while she was at her first job.
"My daughter works in a clothing store. It's her first job, and she's 16 and I'm so proud of her," Martin gushes. "She's making her way in the world."
He goes on to note that he recently stopped by the store to surprise her, but didn't get the reception he'd anticipated.
"I just went to see. And I thought, 'I better buy something.' So I took a T-shirt from the rack and I lined up in the queue," he says. "She was at the check out, and there were two check outs, and she saw me and she went like this, [mouths, 'Dad, get out!']. And I felt terrible, so I moved to the other line."
He jokes that he was "really scared" of Apple after the exchange.
"I paid for the T-shirt, and I'd brought her some fudge. She loves candy, fudge," he recalls. "So I said to the lady, 'Can you just give this to my daughter?' And as I was leaving, she shouted, 'I love you, Dad!'"
