This apple really didn’t fall far from the tree.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin’s daughter Apple Martin turned 18 on Saturday – and looks just like her famous mum in a new pic shared by the Goop founder.
“18. I’m a bit lost for words this morning (😭). I couldn’t be more proud of the woman you are,” Paltrow, 49, captioned a stunning Instagram photo of the birthday girl in a white dress.
“You are everything I could have dreamed of and more. Pride doesn’t cover it, my heart swells with feelings I can’t put into words. You are deeply exceptional in every way.”
She went on to wish her “favorite girl” a happy birthday before closing: “I hope you know how special you are and how much light you have brought to all who are lucky enough to know you. Especially me.
“I say it all the time and I will never stop,” she continued. “In the words of Aunt Drew [Barrymore], I was born the day you were born. I love you. ❤️ Mom.”
Legions of the famous family’s high-profile friends took to the comments section to offer Apple happy birthday wishes in person, including Heidi Klum, Alexandra von Furstenberg and Ali Wentworth, who wrote, “Happy Birthday sweet beautiful Apple!”
Meanwhile, fans couldn’t help but comment on how much Apple resembled her mother in a snap.
“Looks just like Gwyneth!!!! I thought that was her,” one fan wrote, while another added, “Pretty like her mama! She looks just like you. Happy birthday 🎈.”
Just last month, Paltrow shared the story of how she and her ex-husband, 45, came up with Apple’s nickname in a candid Instagram question-and-answer session.
“Your father came up with the name and I fell in love with him,” Paltrow revealed. “I thought it was original and cool. I can’t imagine her name being anything else!”
Paltrow and the Coldplay frontman were married from 2003 to 2016 and at the time described their split as a “conscious decoupling.” In addition to Apple, they also share son Moses, 16.
