Gwyneth Paltrow's holiday weekend celebrating Mother's Day in the U.S. is extra special because of her daughter, Apple Martin. 

While the Goop founder was definitely showered with love for the special day, meanwhile her attention was on her eldest daughter, whose 19th year around the sun fell on Mother's Day.

Her mom was overjoyed by the coincidence, and made sure that among the Mother's Day celebrations, her daughter was feeling the love she deserves on her own special day. Apple is the star's daughter with her ex-husband Chris Martin, who she was married to from 2003 until 2016. They also share a son, Moses, who is 17.

The first snapshot is a photo of the birthday girl all grown up, while the other captures them in a sweet, no-filter moment, and the third sees Apple when she was much younger, and like a true amalgamation of her mom and dad.

Apple looks like her mom as much as she looks like her dad

Apple just wrapped up her first year at Vanderbilt, and her mom is treasuring the time she has with her back at home, after what she said was a "horrible" send-off back in 2022 for the start of her freshman year.

"It was horrible. It was truly horrifying," she previously told People, adding: "I was sick to my stomach, bursting into tears."
