Apple Martin is growing up ... to look just like her mother!

Gwyneth Paltrow took to Instagram on Sunday to celebrate Apple's 13th birthday with a stunning photo of her rarely-seen daughter.

The Goop mogul shared a close-up snap of Apple, who she shares with ex-husband Chris Martin, along with son Moses, 11.

"Happy 13th birthday, you gorgeous human," she captioned the sweet Instagram. "You light up every room, my heart, the world. You. Are. Everything. I love you, schnapps."

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.
