Gwyneth Paltrow Poses With Son Moses For His 8th Birthday

Gwyneth Paltrow has shared a sweet mother-and-son photo with Moses, her youngest child with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin. Moses is celebrating his eighth birthday weeks after his parents publicly announced their separation.

The 41-year-old actress and zealous lifestyle guru tweeted 'Moses Bruce Paltrow Martin turns 8 today. We love you!' to her nearly two million Twitter followers.

The message was accompanied by a black-and-white picture which shows Moses appearing to squirm - he is an eight-year-old boy, after all - as his mum gives him a big hug.

Also prominent in the shot is Gwyneth's wedding ring, confirming that she has not chosen to remove it since she and husband Chris Martin announced their 'conscious uncoupling' (Goop-speak for separation) last month.

This should come to no surprise, as the statement released by the pair announcing their split also affirmed their intention to put on a united front when it comes to raising their two children - Moses and older sister Apple, nine.
