Happy birthday, my darling girl. You make everyday feel like Christmas morning. You are the most vibrant, hilarious, twirling all over the place, beautiful (inside and out) young woman. You are an amazing thinker and an incredible songwriter. Thanks for still hanging out with me, even though you are 14.

Though Paltrow has shared a handful of photos of her daughter before, they've tended to be family shots or photos that weren't exactly head-on. So, this extreme close-up is a welcome, rare surprise from the guarded star.

Paltrow, Apple, Moses and Martin spent Apple's birthday -- and Mother's Day! -- together on Sunday at Los Angeles' Museum of Ice Cream. The actress shared a full group shot Boomerang of the family looking happy as ever hanging out together.

"Best Apple's birthday/Mother's Day EVER at the @museumoficecream," she captioned the cute shot.
