"I completely overdo Valentine's Day," he said. "I mean, there's not just one card, there are cards hidden around the room, and sometimes things even spill into the next day – it's completely silly.
"If there's an excuse to have some fun, I overdo it! At Christmas, I go crazy with the tree lights and fairy lights - totally overdo it.
" He added: "I try to be helpful as a husband too. If there's a problem, I like to be the guy that will lend some strength to it. I'm always very happy to be the person Nancy relies on, and to be her strength when she goes through tough times.

"I am very proud, in fact, to be 'The Guy' there. And I know she is grateful. So, that's my role as a husband: it's to be the strength and the romance at the same time. I don't think I consciously chose to be that way. It's just how I do things."
The couple's relationship began in 2007 after the singer's divorce from his second wife, Heather Mills. They got married in October 2011 in a private ceremony in London, and have been together for over a decade and seem to have a strong and loving relationship.
