Why can't I play the guitar and sing at the same time?

Soo I'm trying to strum the guitar and sing at the same time, but I find it impossible already when I'm playing some simple chords. I just can't do the two things together. It's like my brain can't do multitasking. Is there a way to exercise this or do something about it or do I have to accept the fact?

    I used to have this problem, except it was singing and playing the piano.

    It took me months to get the hang of some songs, but you will get there.

    Honestly, I played a few measures, played it over and over until I felt totally confident, sang the words, then put it together.

    A lack of coordination is most likely the culprit but don't worry, with practice it will get better.
