Gwyneth Paltrow was a day late on celebrating National Daughters Day — which fell this year on Saturday, Sept. 25 — but her sentiment was just as strong.

On Sunday, a day ahead of her 49th birthday, the actress paid tribute to daughter Apple Martin, 17, with a selfie that shows them leaning into each other. Paltrow, who went makeup-free for the sweet shot, gushed, "Oh man do I love you" in her caption, adding a hashtag for National Daughters Day.

Paltrow — who shares Apple and son Moses with ex-husband Chris Martin of Coldplay — got loving responses from Kate Hudson and others with her sentimental selfie.

"You are fully YOU which I respect and admire so much," she wrote. "I wish I had had even a spoonful of the self-acceptance you have when I was your age. You are so inspiring and just so cool."
