Gwyneth Paltrow - Paltrow's Daughter Pestered For Piercings

Gwyneth Paltrow gave in to daughter Apple's demands for pierced ears when she was aged five after she pestered her parents for three years.
The seven year old, and her brother Moses, five, have a Spanish nanny, and after seeing the country's tradition of piercing baby girls' ears after they are born, the tot was eager to follow suit.
Paltrow and husband Chris Martin refused to let their daughter have pierced ears at first - but after three years of pleading, they decided it was time to give in to her demands.
Paltrow tells Britain's OK! magazine, "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 has been wanting to get her ears pierced from the age of two. 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.
"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."
