Gwyneth Paltrow Shows Off Family Holiday Snaps On Her Website

Gwyneth Paltrow shows off family holiday snaps on Goop

Gwyneth Paltrow is usually so uber protective of her two young children, Apple and Moses, that we were really surprised to see her sharing pics of her family hols on her Goop website.

The family had been holidaying at a luxury resort in the Caribbean, and the snaps show 40-year-old Gwynnie posing in a striped bikini with her eight year old daughter and six-year-old son. We presume daddy Chris Martin was behind the camera!

She wrote that they had enjoyed an 'amazing' but 'sadly short' break at Sugar Beach in St Lucia, and said it was 'heaven'.

The series of pics also include a shot of son 'Mosey' wearing sunglasses and drinking from a coconut (jokingly captioned 'No, that's not a piña colada') and images of the children playing on the beautiful white sands.

Oh to be showbiz royalty in freezing cold January!
