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"
"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."
