Happy birthday, Moses!

Proud mom Gwyneth Paltrow took to her Instagram account on Tuesday to celebrate a major milestone in her little boy’s life.

Looking fresh-faced with her blonde locks pulled away from her face, the actress snuggles her son — as they both flash big grins — in the sweet snapshot.

“Moses Bruce Paltrow Martin turns 8 today. We love you!” she writes.

Despite difficult times — Paltrow and husband Chris Martin announced their separation in March and her paternal grandmother recently passed away — the family is still going strong.

After their decision to consciously uncouple, the foursome — including daughter Apple, 9½ — spent time together vacationing on an island in the Bahamas.

“We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been,” the couple said in a joint statement announcing their split.
