Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated Apple's 16th birthday by sharing new photos of her daughter with the world! Paltrow took to Instagram on Thursday to make a special birthday post, featuring pictures she'd taken of Apple while in isolation at home.
In the photos, Apple can be seen sitting on the couch in a white ruffled floral dress, posing for the camera. In one of the photos, she smiles while giving a thumbs-up, her thumb wrapped in a teal bandage.
Paltrow to daughter Apple: "I have the best time being your mom"
Paltrow began her caption by wishing Apple a happy 16th birthday. "I can't believe I’m actually writing these words but... happy sweet sixteen my darling girl," she said. "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 then went on to share even more things she loves about her daughter. "I love our nightly evening chats when I really get to hear what’s on your mind," Paltrow continued. "You work hard to get whatever it is you want to achieve, and you have grit and responsibility in spades."
