Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow talked to New! magazine this week about her guilt issues of being a working mum and deciding on the unusual names she and husband Chris Martin picked for their two children Apple, 4, and Moses, 2.
She said it is difficult to be apart from the children while filming,
“Of Course. Some days I’d think, ‘Oh, my god, they’re in the bath right now and I’m not there.’ I’d cry in the trailer! But I realised it’s OK for me to want to express that part of myself.”
When asked about naming her children, she said,
“My husband named Apple. He said, ‘If this baby is a girl, we’ll call her Apple.’ I just thought that it was very cool. I like unusual names. And it suits her perfectly – she is the apple of my eye! And Moses – that’s a big name! My father was Jewish and his Hebrew name was Moses, and we just thought that it was a good name. I love it.”
