Gwyneth Paltrow makes exception to 'no children' rule with Twitpic...wearing her wedding ring
Gwyneth Paltrow is fiercely protective of her two children, but sometimes a mother's pride makes them throw the rules out the window.
The 41-year-old posted a picture of her son Moses on her Twitter account, marking his eighth birthday.
Paltrow, who is recently separated from her Coldplay frontman husband Chris Martin, normally doesn't allow any public - or posting of private - photos of her children Moses (eight) and Apple (10).
“Moses Bruce Paltrow Martin turns 8 today. We love you!” she wrote in the post.
The person or persons referred to when Gwyneth said “we” remains a mystery, but it appears as if she may have been alluding to her estranged husband, Coldplay musician Chris.
But she looks beaming with pride in the black and white snap.
Even more bizarrely, she is still wearing her wedding band.
It is unknown whether the photo was taken before or after their recent split.
Gwyneth and Chris announced their separation on the actress's lifestyle website Goop, calling it a "conscious uncoupling".
Around the time they told the world their union was over, the former couple took a vacation in the Bahamas with their two children.
Gwyneth recently revealed she is doing everything possible to console her eldest daughter, Apple.
"Apple is nine and already she's starting to pick up on certain things from friends who are going on the internet and getting exposed to things you'd rather not have your children deal with at this age," she sighed to the British edition of OK! magazine.
"But she has an incredible brain and she's already asking me lots of big questions about the universe. I try to explain to her that there are things on the internet which are upsetting to grownups too, and that she's not ready to be dealing with everything you can find on the internet. It's not safe for children. So I ask her to come to me with her questions."
