Gwyneth Paltrow has shared a sweet tribute to celebrate her daughter’s 16th birthday and fans can’t get over the mother/daughter similarity.

To mark the milestone birthday, the actor turned wellness entrepreneur shared three new photographs of her teenage daughter alongside a moving message about how much she loves being Apple’s mother.

“I can’t believe I'm actually writing these words but... happy sweet sixteen my darling girl,” she began the post.

“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 humour.

“I have the best time being your mom [sic],” she added.

She went on to say how much she enjoys their nightly chats and how proud she is of her daughter.

“I am so damn lucky to be your mother, you beautiful, kind young woman. Thank you for choosing me. I adore you to the moon and back a zillion times.”

“Happy 16th birthday, you both are like twins,” one fan wrote.

“Apple doesn’t fall far from the tree,” another added.

“She is a young Gwyneth, beautiful girl,” another pointed out.

Paltrow has keeping her Instagram followers posted about the time she’s spending time at home with her children Moses,14, and Apple during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Last month, she shared a rare photo of her with her children, who she shares with Chris Martin, on Instagram describing them as “moral support” as she worked from home.

She later revealed her daughter thinks she should be spending time in quarantine making more vagina eggs and candles.

Paltrow shared a photograph of a to-do list made by her daughter in her notebook which read: “Make more vagina eggs and candles,” the note reads with Gwyneth captioning the post: “interpretation of my to-do list #quaranteen.”

For those who aren’t quite sure what the teen was referencing, Gwyneth, 47, previously sold a candle, called This Smells Like My Vagina, on goop.

Last year, Paltrow also did a birthday shout out to her daughter, but famously revealed that Apple had to pre-approve the post before sharing.

Wonder if Apple also gave her stamp of approval for this year’s birthday message?
