It’s safe to say the apple sure didn’t fall far from the tree here!

Gwyneth Paltrow has taken to Instagram to pay tribute to her daughter Apple Martin on her 16th birthday. The actress referred to her first-born was “wickedly intelligent” and a “pure joy” in a heartfelt post.

“I can’t believe I’m actually writing these words but… happy sweet sixteen my darling girl. You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy. You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humor,” she wrote.

“I have the best time being your mom. I love our nightly evening chats when I really get to hear what’s on your mind. You work hard to get whatever it is you want to achieve, and you have grit and responsibility in spades. I am so damn lucky to be your mother, you beautiful, kind young woman.”

She added, “Thank you for choosing me. I adore you to the moon and back a zillion times. I’m sorry you are having this particular birthday during these circumstances, but as always with you, you find the best in everything.”
