The Apple doesn't fall far from the tree.

Gwyneth Paltrow took to Instagram to celebrate her lookalike daughter Apple’s 17th birthday.

The 48-year-old actress behind the lifestyle and beauty brand Goop shared the snap to her 7.6 million followers.

“Can it be? 17 today?? My sweetest girl... YOU ARE MY LIFE! You make me belly laugh every day,” Paltrow captioned the candid photo of her daughter relaxing near the beach. The teen looks just like her mother while rocking the same relaxed aesthetic.

She continued, “You are brilliant and hardworking. You are fully YOU which I respect and admire so much. I wish I had had even a spoonful of the self-acceptance you have when I was your age. You are so inspiring and just so cool. I remember the morning you came into the world so perfectly, I just can’t believe it was 17 years ago. Happy birthday, my angel.”

Paltrow shares Apple and 15-year-old son, Moses, with ex-husband Chris Martin.

The doting mother enjoys posting to Instagram to celebrate her kids’ special days. In April, the mom-of-two celebrated Moses’ 15th birthday with a special post in his honor.

"Holy Moses I can't believe you are 15 today," she captioned a close-up photo of her son as well as one of him skateboarding. "You are the dreamiest, sweetest, most brilliant guy ever. I love you so much, you can't fathom it. Happy birthday you little shredder 💙."

Earlier this year, Paltrow gave fans an update on her health.

In February, the Oscar winner revealed that she contracted coronavirus early during the pandemic and was still struggling with symptoms.

“A little background: I had COVID-19 early on, and it left me with some long-tail fatigue and brain fog,” the star wrote on her Goop website.

As part of her recovery, Paltrow said she has continued on a keto and plant-based diet and avoids sugars and alcohol.
