The singer, who came out as gay in 2010, revealed that over the course of his life he has fallen in love with women as well as men.
"I have slept with women and I fell in love with them and I felt wonderful things," Martin told Vanity Fair.
"There was a lot of love [and] passion," he added.
Martin went on to say that he owes his happiness to the woman who birthed his children, saying that he disapproves of the term "surrogate".
"I would give my life to the woman who helped me bring my children into the world," he said. "I [did] not rent a womb. This expression (surrogate) is used by fundamentalist conservatives."
