The birthday boy had his party at Candytopia in Santa Monica, California.

They grow up so fast!

Over the weekend, Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin's son, Moses, turned 12 and his mom commemorated the occasion with a heartfelt Instagram post. 

"Happy birthday, my son. You are the sweetest, most brilliant young man I’ve ever met," Paltrow captioned a photo of Moses with his surfboard. "You broke the mold 12 years ago today when you came into the world. #Iwasbornthedayyouwereborn"

The 45-year-old actress also posted a few pics from her son's birthday party at Candytopia in Santa Monica, California, including her stylishly posing on a 100 sign.

"Celebrating Mosey’s birthday at #candytopia which is categorically 100," she wrote.

 She also shared on her Instagram Story a slow motion video of Moses living it up in Candytopia.

The celebration comes just a few weeks after Paltrow posted a family photo with Moses, her 13-year-old daughter, Apple, and her ex-husband and father of her children, Chris Martin. 

In an exclusive interview with ET, the Iron Man star opened up about how to successfully co-parent after a divorce. 

"You have to constantly let go," she shared. "You have to let go of old ideas, old resentments. You have to put the kids first, which I think people have the idea of that, but then oftentimes, you struggle with it."

The mother of two continued, "If you once loved the person enough to have kids with them, you have to focus on what you still love about them and what's beautiful about them and all the good aspects of your relationship. You still want a family, you're just not in a couple. So, I acknowledge we've done it in an unorthodox way but it's working for us."
