With Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay front man Chris Martin as parents – and rapper Jay–Z your honorary uncle – it’s no surprise that Moses Paltrow-Martin is known as the “sensitive thug” around the Paltrow-Martin house.
During an appearance on Thursday’s “Tonight Show With Conan O’Brien,” Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that her three-year-old has developed into quite the little tyrant, but with adorable poetic moments.
“We actually call him our sensitive thug,” the actress told Conan. “It’s a line from a Jay-Z song, because that sort of characterizes him perfectly.”
She went on to explain that Moses is embracing the rough and tough side of being a little boy.
“He’s so out of his mind and then he has these moments of very poetic softness,” she continued.
And little Moses appears to have inherited his dad’s gift of prose.
“The other day he held up a paper clip and said, ‘my splendid thing, I will hook you up,’” Gwyneth explained. “He does talk like he’s from another century, he’ll say things like, ‘Is it not raining?’”
During the interview, the 36-year-old mom also revealed the meaning behind the name of her lifestyle Web site, GOOP.com.
“All my friends call me ‘GP’ — that’s kind of my nickname, and I was looking for a word that sort of meant nothing, but could mean everything,” the “Iron Man” star said. “Sort of like a soup of stuff, so we came up with GOOP.”
