Happy birthday, Blythe!

Gwyneth Paltrow wished her mom, Blythe Danner, a happy 78th birthday on Wednesday with a sweet tribute on Instagram.

"This beautiful creature fills our hearts with so much warmth," the Goop founder wrote, sharing a selfie of herself and Danner.

"She gets words and names mixed up in the most hilarious and unique of ways," she continued in the caption. "She is full of life and incredibly strong. She loves her grandchildren more than anything in the world. She loves Bill Evans, eating leftovers and keeping her own company."

"I admire so many things about her and today is her birthday," Gwyneth, 48, concluded. "Happy birthday from the bottom of our hearts, your family loves you so much mommy 💝"

Gwyneth is the daughter of Danner and Bruce Paltrow, who died in 2002.

In November, the actress shared a tribute to her late father on what would have been his 77th birthday — which fell on Thanksgiving last year.

"On this November 26th, I was able to visit my fathers resting place (on his birthday) with these two loves of my life," Gwyneth wrote on Instagram, sharing a photo with her children Apple Blythe Alison, 16, and Moses Bruce Anthony, 14, whom she shares with ex Chris Martin.

"Happy thanksgiving," she added in the caption. "Life has incredible highs and lows. Perhaps feeling it all at the same time is the art. 💖"

The trio agreed that with age comes self-love: "It's definitely a process and I think when you see your face start to change you don't necessarily feel your best self externally," Gwyneth said, "But the irony is it's that time in your life when you actually really like yourself and love yourself. So you sort of internally feel really beautiful."

"I think I felt prettiest at 50 and maybe cause of what you just said," Blythe said.

"Oh, that's so nice!" Gwyneth replied, while Apple added, "I think that with age comes wisdom."
