Actress Gwyneth Paltrow says that she is regretting letting Apple, 7 and Moses, 5, her children with musician husband Chris Martin, have a Nintendo Wii as she can’t get them to stop playing with the games console.
“How the f do i get these kids off the wii? i swore i would never have one in the house, now they freebase Mario,” she said on her Twitter page. She then posted a pic of her cute kids in the middle of a game – check out Moses’ fabulous Star Wars pyjamas!
Gwyneth’s Twitter followers and website fans then added their own suggestions to wean the children off video games, including sending them to “Wii-hab”. Another fan tried to reassure the star mum, “I reluctantly let my kids play – now one’s a computer scientist, the other a Marine Biologist/geek. Don’t fret, keep shoving out the love and they’ll turn out fine.”
Despite their passion for computer games, Apple and Moses’ gran, and 38-year-old Gwyneth’s mum, Blythe Danner says they are “remarkable and perfect” children.
“They’re so perfect – truly, they are. Quite remarkable! I’ve just never met children like this, that are so secure and have such great self-control and self-image. They’re just great kids,” Blythe said.
Gwyneth has also recently posted a picture on Twitter, showing her car being pulled over by police. “Oops. Busted by New York’s finest,” read the caption, yet she doesn’t explain further why she was stopped.
