Gwyneth shares Apple and Moses with her ex-husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

In a recent appearance on People (The Show!), the star spoke about her bond with Apple, and admitted they have started to swap clothes.

"Apple borrows from my closet. Although I did take a hoodie from her about two weeks ago. So, fair enough. But she likes my t-shirts and my shoes. She likes my shoes," Gwyneth revealed.

"Apple gives me beauty tips all the time. She's really amazing at doing eyeliner and all that kind of stuff, so she tries to get me to be a little bit more glam at home, which I just am not."

The Goop founder went on to describe her experience of raising Apple as "really interesting".

She explained: "Because as she's come into her own, it's almost like, you know, it's like watching her harness her own power with every passing year, and I'm just like, 'What is this child here to do?' She's so bright and so funny ... she's hilarious."
