Gwyneth Paltrow shares selfie with college student daughter Apple: “Still not used to it”
Gwyneth Paltrow feels the distance between her and her daughter Apple Martin.
Last year, the West Coast-based Goop founder sent her oldest child and ex-husband, Chris Martin, to college in New York City. In a Friday post on her Instagram Story, Paltrow shared a selfie of herself and her daughter, writing that she was “still trying to get used to it.
This isn’t the first time Paltrow has been excited about her daughter’s growth. In a Sunday morning interview with CBS in September 2022, she said going to school at Apple “feels almost as profound as giving birth.
Fortunately, Paltrow shared that she took time out of her freshman year to see Apple, and she told People magazine in October 2022 that she was able to see her children in New York City – she recently walked the Chanel show as a model during Paris Fashion Week –She was able to spend a “parents’ weekend” in New York City, and Apple came home to visit her.
“She just came home last weekend for October break, which was great,” Paltrow said at the time. “I saw her, but not as often as I would have liked. I wish I could see her every day, but I’m happy for her. She’s doing well.”
The Se7en star also shared her 16-year-old son Moses with Martin after she spoke with Hailey Bieber about how Apple changed the course of her life on the YouTube series “Who’s in My Bathroom. That included the decision to give up acting to pursue other interests, such as her successful lifestyle brand.
“I really loved the acting part of the show, but life was kind of hard and lonely for me,” the Glee alum explained. “Then when I had my daughter, that was a real turning point in my life and I really reevaluated everything and I just thought, I’m not sure I want to do this full time. So I stopped for a while, and then I really liked that feeling. It was like being at home, away from the public eye.”
While Paltrow may have felt great about Apple leaving the nest, she made sure to spend quality time with her daughter when they were in the same place. Last December, Paltrow posted a series of photos of her and her family on Instagram, including one of the Oscar winner and her daughter.
“Closing out 2022 with a lot of [love] and a little [ocean],” Paltrow wrote in the post.
