The actress had an incredibly close relationship with both her parents. Tragically, Bruce passed away from throat cancer in 2002, but has made sure to keep his memory alive in her household.

The 48-year-old, who shares Moses and Apple with ex-husband Chris Martin, told talk show host Jimmy Kimmel: "I think Moses, my 14-year-old son is having the hardest time with it.

"I mean, what's great is that he is a skateboarder, so he can do a lot of just like solo, outside exercise and work on skills and tricks and stuff like that.

"But, I think, it's very hard to be 14 and, as all the parents who are watching your show know, it's tough on the ones that are still in kind of like the most intense developmental stages."

Speaking of Apple, Gwyneth continued: "My daughter is 16, she kind of knows who she is, she's got her friends and my son would've started high school in September and I think it's hard socially.

"But I have also been so amazed at how adaptable and agile they have been. So hats off to the kids around the world getting through it."
