Gwyneth Paltrow Shares Rare Pictures Of Daughter Apple To Celebrate Her 16th Birthday

It feels crazy to say it, but Gwyneth Paltrow's daughter that she shares with Coldplay's Chris Martin, Apple, has just turned 16. It seems like just yesterday the world was marveling at what seemed to be the first strange celebrity baby name. Although, by today's standards, Apple is almost quaint.

Still, it feels wild that Apple is already turning 16, a sentiment shared by her mother!

There's so much on Gwyneth Paltrow's plate these days, it's easy to forget the 47-year-old is a mom to TWO TEENAGERS!

Gwyneth and ex-hubby Chris Martin had two beautiful children together, 16-year-old daughter Apple Martin and 14-year-old son Moses Martin.

Now, Gwyneth is no stranger to a sweet Insta tribute to her daughter Apple. They're just a ~special~ occasion that are few and far between!

Like this sweet #NationalDaughtersDay post!

"Happy #nationaldaughtersday Apple Martin, it’s like i conjured you from a dream, you make my life," she wrote.

And don't worry guys, sweet Moses doesn't get left out of the Insta love, either!

After a thorough creeping of Gwyneth's profile, I can confidently say she never misses a birthday shoutout for her babies!

Now, Apple is celebrating her big milestone birthday — Sweet 16!

Of course, birthdays look a lot different these days, but it seems like Momma G still found a way to make her daughter feel special!

"I can’t believe I’m actually writing these words but... happy sweet sixteen my darling girl," Gwyneth wrote 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," she shared alongside rare photographs of the notoriously private teenager.

"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. I am so damn lucky to be your mother, you beautiful, kind young woman," Gwyneth shared.

"Thank you for choosing me," she continued.

"I adore you to the moon and back a zillion times. I’m sorry you are having this particular birthday during these circumstances, but as always with you, you find the best in everything."

IDK what happened to girlfriend's thumb but I am wishing her a speedy recovery, especially on her birthday!

Naturally, the world is shook that Apple is celebrating her sweet 16 and honestly, we're ALLOWED to be!!! It's like a right of passage for anyone over the age of 25 to just freak out about kids growing up.

You're now allowed to just say I CAN'T BELIEVE SO-AND-SO IS ALL GROWN UP!!!! and then move on with the convo.

As the AGE OLD saying goes, the Apple does not fall far from the Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin TREE!

Honestly, the name Apple sounds as normal as names like "Sarah" or "Kim" by these 2020 Elon Musk and Grimes standards, amirite?!

ANYWAY, what a touching post!

It's clear that Gwyneth and Apple have so much love for each other, and it's beautiful to see! Happy birthday, Apple, and hopefully you'll be able to celebrate your sweet sixteen in traditional style soon enough!
