Star posts rare snap of lookalike daughter

Gwyneth Paltrow rarely features daughter Apple Martin on social media - so fans have been left delighted with her latest post.

The actress shared photos of her eldest child with ex-husband Chris Martin, wishing the teen a happy sixteenth birthday.

"I can't believe I'm actually writing these words but … happy sweet sixteen my darling girl," Paltrow, 47, began her lengthy Instagram dedication to her mini-me.

"You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy," she continued. "You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humour. I have the best time being your mum. 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. Thank you for choosing me. 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."

Paltrow and Martin also share 14-year-old son, Moses.

Apple recently trolled the GOOP founder over some of Paltrow's store's more unique items, jokingly writing up her own interpretation of her mum's quarantine to-do list.

"Make more vagina eggs & candles," she wrote.

Goop famously and erroneously endorsed egg-shaped chunks of jade and rose quartz as products that could balance hormones, regulate menstrual cycles and increase bladder control when inserted into the vagina. Less harmful was its gone-viral $75 candle, called, whimsically, "This Smells Like My Vagina."
