"I can't believe I’m actually writing these words but... happy sweet sixteen my darling girl," Paltrow wrote alongside the photos on Instagram. "You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy. You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humor. I have the best time being your mom. I love our nightly evening chats when I really get to hear what’s on your mind. You work hard to get whatever it is you want to achieve, and you have grit and responsibility in spades." Paltrow, who is also mom to 14-year-old son Moses, added, "I am so damn lucky to be your mother, you beautiful, kind young woman. Thank you for choosing me. I adore you to the moon and back a zillion times." Gwyneth Paltrow Celebrates Father’s Day with a Tribute to Ex Chris Martin and Husband Brad Falchuk Paltrow also recognized that due to current stay-at-home orders in Los Angeles amid the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Apple's birthday celebrations didn't happen as planned, something the teenager was taking in stride. "I’m sorry you are having this particular birthday during these circumstances, but as always with you, you find the best in everything. 💝," the mom of two said. Paltrow has been spending a lot of time with both her daughter Apple and son Moses, who also celebrated a "quarantine" birthday last month.

"I think it must be pretty surreal for them to be the kids of somebody — well, both of their parents are in the public eye," said Paltrow, who shares both children with ex-musician husband Martin of Coldplay fame. "It’s interesting to watch them sort of evolve along with our careers as they go."
