Marc Anthony has made quite the life for himself, but it doesn't come without one big regret.

Getting candid in an interview with CBS' Sunday Morning, the singer revealed that he wishes he could have spent more time with his children, five in total – 22-year-old Ariana, 15-year-old Cristian, and 12-year-old Ryan, as well as 8-year-old twins Max and Emme with ex-wife Jennifer Lopez.

"The one regret would be that what I chose to do took so much of my time," Anthony, 47, said. "What I would have done to have been a stay-at-home dad, and you know, witnessed every second of everything. I would have loved that. Didn't work out that way."

Despite his many accomplishments, including a clothing line at Kohl's, his own media company, and his partial ownership of the Miami Dolphins, Anthony still catches himself wondering if his career was worth the time he missed with his children.



"It's the one thing that just tugs at me going and – that's the biggest sacrifice. And you start to wonder was it all worth it. Was it worth it? You know, on that level."

Along with opening up about his kids, Anthony also talked about his own childhood, his marriage and divorce from Lopez and why he decided to speak out against Donald Trump during a performance at Madison Square Garden.

Anthony's interview airs on Sunday at 9 a.m. ET on CBS.
