Gwyneth Paltrow Lets 5-Year-Old Daughter Get Ears Pierced

Gwyneth Paltrow gave in to her daughter, Apple’s, pleas to get her ears pierced – something many mothers wouldn’t do.

But it didn’t come easy for the 7-year-old tot.

“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.”

Would you let your daughter get her ears pierced at 5-years-old?

    Well I’m from the Caribbean and over here ours kids get their ears pierced very early so that’s not a big thing at all. Heck, mine were done before I was even one year and by 15 I had second holes.
