Gwyneth Paltrow proved the apple doesn't fall far from the tree when she shared a snap of her daughter to celebrate her birthday.

Gwynnie, who usually remains pretty coy about her private life, took to Instagram to share a snap of her lookalike daughter to mark her 14th birthday.

Apple, whose father is Chris Martin, can be seen posing on a summer holiday - and the similarity between mother and daughter is uncanny.

Gwyneth used the photo caption to gush about her daughter, writing: 'You are the most vibrant, hilarious, twirling all over the place, beautiful (inside and out) young woman. You are an amazing thinker and an incredible songwriter.

'Thanks for still hanging out with me, even though you are 14.'

Gwyneth and Chris welcomed baby Apple five months after getting married back in 2003. Their second child, little boy Moses, was born the year after.

Chris and Gwyneth famously announced their ‘conscious uncoupling’ back in 2014. In a statement released through the actress's Goop blog, they said at the time: "We have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been."

They officially signed divorce papers in July 2016, but the pair have remained close. They’re regularly spotted on holiday with their two children - Moses, 11, and Apple, 13.

In 2015, Gwyneth revealed she went out for brunch with Chris and their children every weekend, even if they “hated each other”. Talk about a modern family!
