The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter Apple looks just like her mom. Gwyneth posted a rare photo of her kids, Apple and Moses, on Instagram on June 6 and it shows that the Oscar winning actress has a mini-me. Apple is wearing a helmet in the pic, but what her face bears an uncanny resemblance to her famous mom as she peers out from the headgear. Both of Gwyneth’s kids are holding dogs in the photo.
Gwyneth and her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, rarely post photos of their kids online, so this is a rare chance for fans to see how much Apple looks just like her mom. Gwyneth’s son can only be seen from the side in the snap, so it’s hard to tell if he looks more like his dad or his mom.
While it’s not often that the actress posts photos of her kids on social media, last month she did post a baby picture of Apple, describing her as a “brilliant, kind, hilarious beauty.” She also posted a photo of her kids from the back during a recent trip to Mexico.
The Goop founder and her ex have remained amicable when it comes to their kids. Last summer, Us Weekly revealed that Chris Martin bought a $6.75 million Brentwood home directly across the street from Gwyneth’s house. With Martin’s European-style mansion located right across the street from his ex’s plush pad, it allows for Apple and Moses to go back and forth between their parents’ homes whenever they want.
Gwyneth and her ex-husband caught some flack when they name their daughter Apple. While some fans thought it was an unusual name to give a child, Gwyneth has gone on record as saying her 11-year-old daughter “loves” her unique name. In an interview with Howard Stern’s radio show earlier this year, Gwyneth said that it was Chris Martin’s idea to give their daughter the fruit-themed moniker. While Chris gave Apple her name, Gwyneth definitely gave Apple her looks, because the child looks just like her mom.
