Ever since they split -- or should we say, consciously uncoupled -- Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin have been amicably raising their two kiddos, Apple, now 13, and Moses, 11. To celebrate Apple's big first teenage birthday, the famous couple threw their daughter what sounds like an incredibly memorable party last weekend. Gwyneth also notably shared a couple of beautiful social media tributes to Apple, whom she often shields from the spotlight.


The former couple and their kids arrived as a family at the Museum of Ice Cream in LA, where Apple was presented with a cake, reports Page Six. Gwyneth and Chris's BFFs Jay Z and Beyonce, along with their daughter Blue Ivy, obvi, were there to help celebrate. And the whole room reportedly sang "Happy Birthday" to Apple.

As if all those details weren't amazing enough, you really just have to see how much Apple looks like her mama these days. Here's a super-cute little Boomerang vid of the whole Paltrow-Martin crew.

And here's a shot of just Apple, which Gwyneth proudly captioned: "Happy 13th birthday, you gorgeous human. You light up every room, my heart, the world. You. Are. Everything. I love you, schnapps. #[apple emoji]" Aww! Not sure when the shot was taken, but it's a beautiful, rare glimpse of the now teen.

You can definitely see a bit of Chris in Apple's face, but she's undoubtedly her mother's -- and grandmother Blythe Danner's -- lookalike, as well. One fan pointed out on Instagram, "She looks just like her mom and her grandma!!! Genetics are an incredible thing." 

For reference, here's a cool throwback shot of Gwyenth from the Met Ball in 1995, when she was 23 years old (so, obviously a whole decade older than her daughter is now), but you can definitely see the resemblance!
