Gwyneth Paltrow has shared a sweet photo of her lookalike daughter for her 17th birthday - and fans are seriously wondering whether the teen is actually her twin.

Apple Martin, the daughter Gwyneth shares with Coldplay's Chris Martin, turned 17 on May 14.

Naturally, the 48-year-old Shallow Hal actress marked the special occasion with a heartfelt post, gushing about her "brilliant and hardworking" daughter. The post consisted of a candid shot of Apple at the beach and a lengthy caption.

Gwyneth wrote: "Can it be? 17 today?? My sweetest girl... YOU ARE MY LIFE! You make me belly laugh every day. You are brilliant and hardworking. You are fully YOU which I respect and admire so much."

The MCU star continued: "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."

In the photo - which has since racked up over half a million likes - the youngster bears a striking resemblance to her famous mother, something that many fans were quick to comment on:

One stunned follower wrote: "Omfg. Gwyn she looks more and more like you as she gets older. It’s insane. She’s absolutely beautiful. Happy birthday Apple!! Beautiful caption too."

Another shared: "I swear I thought it was a photo of you."

A third asked: "Wow she is your twin[?]"

Gwyneth is certainly no stranger to sentimental birthday posts. For Apple's Sweet Sixteen, which she celebrated during quarantine, the Shakespeare In Love star posted an even lengthier tribute to the adolescent.

She wrote: "I can’t believe I’m actually writing these words but... happy sweet sixteen my darling girl. You are the light of my heart, you are pure joy. You are wickedly intelligent and you have the best, most dry, most brilliant sense of humor.

"I have the best time being your mom."

In a 2012 interview with Hello! Canada Magazine, Paltrow was asked about her daughter's quirky name, and revealed whose idea it was to name her Apple. She said: "I know. People did talk about Apple a lot! My [ex-husband, Chris Martin] named her.

"I loved it straight away. I thought it was so unique and sounded cool. She is nearly eight now and it fits her so perfectly. I can’t imagine her being called anything else."

The Iron Man star was then asked if Apple had ever questioned her parent on her unique name, to which Paltrow responded: "Yeah, and I say, 'Ask your father!'"

But in a 2015 interview with Howard Stern, Paltrow added that Apple "loves" her name. The Shallow Hal star also opened up about her relationship with ex-husband Chris Martin.

"We actually have a really strong friendship and we laugh and we have fun," she told Stern. "But there are times when it's really difficult and things happen and you're like, 'I'm sure he doesn't want to hang out with me and I don't want to hang out with him.' But for the sake of the kids, you do it. But you also don't do it all tense."

Happy 17th birthday, Apple!
