It's rare for Paltrow to let us see her children in such an up-close and vulnerable way, so it was definitely a special moment for fans, especially as Paltrow posted the picture in honor of Apple's birthday.
Yesterday was Apple Martin's birthday, and as you can tell by the fact that she has a weird name, her parents are celebrities.
However, in honour of Apple's 14th birthday, Paltrow shared a photo to Instagram of her clone-like teenage daughter; and unsurprisingly, the resemblance is uncanny.
In a second post, she shared a gorgeous snap of Apple, with the most handsome caption.
Along with the image, she wrote: "Fourteen years ago on the verge of a life changing morning..." "You are the most vibrant, hilarious, twirling all over the place, attractive (inside and out) young woman", Paltrow added.
"You are an unbelievable thinker and an incredible songwriter".
'Thanks for still hanging out with me, even though you are 14'.
Paltrow and Martin, who famously "consciously uncoupled" in 2014, have always been protective of their kids' privacy, so this kind of personal glimpse is rare. Paltrow announced her engagement to producer Brad Falchuk in January, and said on Good Morning America this month she's enjoying wedding planning.
