Gwyneth Paltrow’s Daughter Apple Is Seriously Annoyed With Her Mom for Posting a Selfie

It’s something most parents do without thinking – post photos of their children on social media when they’re looking adorable (or being ridiculously naughty). But what happens when your child gets old enough to protest?

That’s exactly what happened to A-list celebrity mom, Gwyneth Paltrow, after she recently posted a selfie with lookalike daughter Apple Martin, age 14. Like so many teenage girls, it appears that Apple has a slightly contentious relationship with her mom and she’s not afraid who knows about it.

What did Gwyneth Paltrow post on Instagram?

The trouble began on Sunday when Paltrow snapped a selfie of the pair having fun on the slopes. The first photo Gwyneth shared featured the two ladies on a ski lift with Apple hidden behind a pair of colorful reflective ski goggles.

In the comments section, Apple issued a terse reply to the shot. It said, “Mom we have discussed this. You may not post anything without my consent.”

But Gwyneth didn’t delete the photo or apologize for the unauthorized sharing. Instead, she had a lighthearted reply comment that said, “@AppleMartin You can’t even see your face!”

Several other celebrity friends shared their thoughts on the cute Instagram photo, giving it likes and comments. Jennifer Garner said, “Sweet XXX,” while Elle MacPherson said, “That face.”

Do Apple Martin and her mom Gwyneth Paltrow get along?

Instagram drama aside, it appears that Apple and Gwyneth have a solid relationship. It’s understood that teens are likely to get into a few arguments with their parents as they attempt to asset their independence and emerging adult identities.

Recently, Paltrow posted another (likely authorized) selfie with Apple on National Daughter’s Day. The caption on that stunning snapshot said, “Happy #nationaldaughtersday Apple Martin, it’s like i conjured you from a dream, you make my life.” It’s amazing how much the two resemble each other. Paltrow has posted plenty of photos of her whole family, including Apple, over the years, but this is the first time an image received such public criticism from her daughter.

Apple is the oldest daughter of Gwyneth and her ex-husband, Chris Martin. The two successfully co-parent the children thanks to their now-famous amicable breakup, which they call a “conscious uncoupling.” It’s essentially a way to get along for the sake of the children even after a divorce.

Paltrow recently remarried producer Brad Falchuk in September 2018.

What is Apple Martin like?

Apple is more than just the daughter of actress Gwyneth Paltrow and rock star Chris Martin – she’s also a stunning young lady who’s proving herself in the music world. She’s got a talent for singing that was basically inevitable with two musically gifted parents.

At a fundraiser event in 2016, Apple and her younger brother Moses joined their Coldplay frontman father onstage to perform Ariana Grande’s “Just a Little Bit of Your Heart” and the audience adored it.

Don’t be surprised if you start hearing Apple’s name more often in the media – and if she starts posting her own selfies.
