In honor of National Daughters Day, actress Gwyneth Paltrow posted a photo of herself posing with her 14-year-old daughter Apple Martin, and fans are going crazy over how similar the two look.
Apple is the daughter of Gwyneth and her ex-husband Chris Martin. They also share a 12-year-old son named Moses.
While Gwyneth is obviously a big deal on social media — she’s one of the biggest stars in the world, after all — she’s usually careful about not posting too many images of her children. This explains how Apple was able to grow up under the radar, with none of us realizing just how similar she looks to her mom!
“You are the most vibrant, hilarious, twirling all over the place, beautiful (inside and out) young woman,” Gwyneth wrote of Apple on her most recent birthday. “You are an amazing thinker and an incredible songwriter. Thanks for still hanging out with me, even though you are 14.”
Scroll down to see the picture that has everyone talking!
Like we mentioned, Gwyneth is a big deal on Instagram. Besides being an A-list movie star and creator of lifestyle brand Goop, the actress also has over 4 million social media followers.
And she’s not shy about sharing her life, both professional and personal, with her legions of fans.
What can be difficult to find, however, are shots of her two children. Even though Gwyneth is known to be an involved and loving mom, she’s one of those celebrities who tries to keep her kids out of the spotlight.
Luckily, with a little digging, there are a few pics to be found: This shot of Apple is from last year. Gwyneth captioned it with, “Happy 13th birthday, you gorgeous human.”
Here’s another one from the same birthday celebration, showing off the entire family.
But now we come to the recent picture that has fans freaking!
Seriously, pick any feature on Gwyneth’s face, then compare it to Apple’s. They look so much alike!
If Apple was conjured from a dream, then Gwyneth was having a dream about herself — they’re mirror images.
Obviously the comments on the photo are full of stunned reactions.
Anybody with eyes can see that Apple is the spitting image of her famous mom.
People couldn’t get over the similarities between the mother and daughter.
Others were surprised at how fast Apple is growing up!
By the way, having a world-famous mother comes with a few perks. This is one of the other rare photos of Apple on Gwyneth’s Instagram, taken during a casual playdate with Blue Ivy, the daughter of Jay-Z and Beyoncé.
This is the caption on that same photo. Excuse us while we try to calm our overwhelming sense of jealousy!
Point is, Apple is growing up to look just like her mom. And if she inherited Gwyneth’s talent as well, Apple might just be destined for stardom.
But until then, we hope she enjoys those teenage years to the fullest — and never takes her mom for granted!
