Gwyneth Paltrow Wishes a Happy 13th Birthday to Look-alike Daughter Apple: ‘You Light Up Every Room’

Posted on

 

Gwyneth Paltrow is officially the mom of a teenager!

The 44-year-old actress had plenty of reasons to celebrate on Sunday: on top of it being Mother’s Day it was also the birthday of her daughter, Apple.

“Happy 13th birthday, you gorgeous human,” Paltrow captioned an Instagram photo of her eldest child — who looks strikingly similar to her mama. “You light up every room, my heart, the world. You. Are. Everything. I love you, schnapps.”

She capped off the post with an apple emoji.

Paltrow is also mom to 11-year-old son Moses with her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

The family was all smiles to celebrate Apple’s birthday at the Museum of Ice Cream in Los Angeles, which Paltrow shared in another post on Instagram on Sunday.

“Best Apple’s birthday/Mother’s Day EVER,” she wrote alongside a Boomerang of Apple, Moses, Chris and herself sharing a hug.

Speaking about her daughter in Harper’s Bazaar’November cover story, Paltrow said she’s proud to be raising a bold person.

“I actually don’t need to encourage her to take risks. She likes to push herself; she wants to see how far she can get,” the actress said. “It’s really inspiring to see that in a young woman.”

It’s no surprise that Paltrow’s children are strong and independent already, considering her own upbringing.

“[My dad’s] whole parenting philosophy was to give my brother and me the skills to be grown-ups and the curiosity to ask the right questions,” she said. “I don’t know if I came to this life with [my drive] or if it’s something that came to me in my childhood, but I do feel that some of the things my parents said to me and how they raised me really stuck with me.”
