Gwyneth’s Daughter Can Sing, Too! Mom Shares Video of Apple Performing Christmas Song

Gwyneth Paltrow and her daughter Apple Martin don’t just look alike — they can both sing, too!

Paltrow shared a very special holiday message with her social media followers Friday, when she posted an Instagram video of her daughter performing Marcy Playground’s “Keegan’s Christmas” in a group of other young guitar- and ukulele-players.

Paltrow, 43, captioned it, “Best wishes and love to all for a happy holiday.”

Of course, it shouldn’t be surprising that Apple has musical talents — her dad is Chris Martin after all!

This isn’t the first time Paltrow has shared a sweet photo of her and her 11-year-old daughter. In Halloween, the pair wore matching skeleton makeup.

And as Paltrow recently told PEOPLE, the Shakespeare in Love and Iron Man star has also been saving her clothes, maybe for her daughter to wear one day. Including, yes, that famous pink Oscars dress.

“What’s funny is I’ve been saving my gowns and special things since 12 years before she was born, so I have everything,” Paltrow told PEOPLE earlier this month. “I have every Oscar dress.”

“Maybe [Apple will] wear it to prom and do a Pretty in Pink thing and resew it and cut it up,” Paltrow said, quickly adding, “I don’t know if I’d let her chop that one up.”

Fix it on

Will they just fix that kids eye already!!!

Jackson Meriander on

You can’t hear her sing and she obviously doesn’t play guitar very well. Why do celebrities exploit their children like this?

Enquiring minds want to know on

This may seem like a silly question but did they really name their daughter Apple or is this just a nickname they call her in the media??

Guest on

Yea, that Paltrow is definitely self described “fiercely private.”

Karla on

Just can’t hear her sing, so don’t know if she is a good singer.

Common on

I think Gwyneth is a wonderful actress, and a good human being, but I will never appreciate the name Apple. Why?!!

Omaka on

Yes she is a good actress, so her daughter may follow her mother’s footstep to be an actress in the future.

not all about USA on

@Enquiring minds & @Common, Gwyneth explained one time on Oprah (a million years ago) that Apple is actually a very common name in the UK and that she liked the sweet, innocent connotation. The kids were raised a lot in Europe and have a British dad. So, sometimes, it’s not all about US(A).

Fix her eye and she doesn’t sing well. That is what people get out of watching a holiday video?! People are so negative towards adults everyday, but the criticizing towards children really needs to stop. You would think during this holiday season, people would be a bit nicer.

Apple is kinda a ridiculous name.

Sherry Straus on

ADORABLE !! She looks like mom and dad. I love kids involved with music and she seems like she enjoys it too. I enjoy Gwyneth and find her more likable and real than most. As a mom I know that feeling of watching your child sing in front of others and its very heartwarming !

stacey on

She looks exactly like her dad….nothing like her mother.

Kn on

Yay the video is adorable.

Lyl on

well, to be fair it wasn´t her who implied she can sing well or that she was going to follow her mother´s and father´s footsteps into singing. Gwyneth only shared the video of her daughter. it is lovely, the kids sound great :). Apple is a bit of a crazy name but she also has two middle names to choose from Blythe Alison Martin but then “Apple” does sound a bit odd but not horrible

Van on

The name Apple sounds a little odd but it’s an ok name, she probably more following to her mother’s step to be an actress, however she is too young for now.
