Multi-tasking actress Gwyneth Paltrow has a reputation for being a tough businesswoman, but there is one person who can get their way with the Country Strong star – seven-year-old daughter Apple. Two-years ago Gwyneth finally gave in and let her daughter get her ears pierced – although it did take three years of pleading.
“We’re strict with them to an extent but we also try to be respectful of who they are and work with them when they really want something. For instance, Apple had been wanting to get her ears pierced from the age of two,” Gwyneth recalled, saying that she and husband Chris Martin refused at first.
“Our nanny is Spanish, so the kids both speak Spanish and are very much connected to the Spanish culture, and in Spain little girls get their ears pierced when they’re born,” the actress explained in an interview with British Ok! magazine. “Apple would see little Spanish girls and says, ‘Why can’t I have my ears pierced too.’ When she was five we let her have her ears pierced.”
