Gwyneth Paltrow Celebrates Her Son Moses Turning 17: “I Deeply Adore You”

Gwyneth Paltrow is celebrating her son Moses on his special day. On April 8, the “Iron Man” actor posted a special tribute to her son, whom she shares with her ex, Coldplay lead singer Chris Martin, to mark his 17th birthday. In a post on Instagram, Paltrow shared a rare photo of her and Moses together. In the pic, she’s smiling with her arm around her son, who appears to be taking the snap.

She captioned the pic, “Happy 17th birthday to the boy that fills my soul up every time I look at him. @mosesmartin you are the most exceptional, kind, loving human being. You keep us all laughing with your perfect impressions and you inspire us with your harmonies. I deeply adore you more than you could ever imagine! Love, mama.”

Now that Moses and his sister Apple, who will turn 19 in May, are getting older, they rarely pop up on their mom’s grid (in true teenager fashion), but she always takes a moment to share how much she loves being their mom on their birthdays. Last year, the Goop founder posted a photo of her son surrounded by balloons alongside a sweet message.

“Since you came into the world on that perfectly New York spring morning, you have made the world a better place. With every thought, action and intuition you have, you make people feel seen, heard and valued. You are deeply special to all who know you. I am so lucky to be your mama,” she wrote in part.

In October 2022, Paltrow opened up to E! News about how she and Moses spend time together now that he’s older. While her son isn’t into wellness in the same way his mom is, he does enjoy going for long walks. “Moses will take walks with me, so that’s great, and he likes to skateboard too, so often times, we’ll walk and he’ll skate next to me and that’s fun,” she shared.
