Gwyneth Paltrow shares rare pic of daughter Apple on her 14th birthday, and the resemblance is uncanny
Gwyneth Paltrow is the known for keeping her kids shadowed from the prying eyes of the media, and over the years, she's grown pretty good at it.
But the actress recently posted a rare picture of her daughter Apple Blythe Alison on the occasion of her 14th birthday, and the striking resemblance to her mother was not missed by anyone.
Paltrow, who shares Apple with her former husband and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, posted a picture of her daughter on her Instagram account on Monday. She also enclosed a heartfelt caption for the photograph, wishing her daughter a very happy birthday.
“Happy birthday, my darling girl,” Paltrow captioned the snap. “You make everyday feel like Christmas morning,” gushed the actress and Goop founder, 45. “You are the most vibrant, hilarious, twirling all over the place, beautiful (inside and out) young woman. You are an amazing thinker and an incredible songwriter.”
“Thanks for still hanging out with me, even though you are 14,” added Paltrow, who is also mother to 12-year-old son Moses.
The snap has Apple looking into the camera, and we cannot help but feel like the 14-year-old is an exact replica of her gorgeous mother.
The actress seems to be in quite a sharing mood recently, and she also put up a throwback picture of herself pregnant with Apple on Mother's day.
The picture, taken the night before her daughter Apple was born, shows Paltrow posing sideways, with her enlarged belly fully visible against a silk curtains.
The 45-year-old captioned the image, "Fourteen years ago on the verge of a life-changing morning. To all of us, biological, adoptive, foster, spiritual, communal, all the den mothers and grandmothers and great-grandmothers and great-great-grandmothers, all the way back, happy Mother’s Day."
Paltrow welcomed daughter Apple in 2004 with her then-husband Martin. Two years later, she had a son with Martin and named him Moses.
However, soon after, the couple decided to go their separate ways, and Paltrow filed for divorce from Martin in April 2015 after over 11 years of marriage.
Even though they have split up, the duo does an excellent job at co-parenting, and share an amicable relationship themselves since they are clearly committed to always putting their kids first.
As for their current relationship status, Paltrow recently got engaged to her boyfriend Brad Falchuk, while Martin is currently in a relationship with actress Dakota Johnson.
