Gwyneth Paltrow took her baby for a three-minute stroll yesterday - and invited along the world's press.
However, there was some doubt as to whether six-day-old Apple was actually in the pram as the Oscar-winning actress paraded up and down outside her Belgravia home.
Paltrow's husband Coldplay singer Chris Martin arranged the 1pm outing to give the world's press their "one and only chance to photograph them for a very long time".The meticulously-planned event was an attempt to defuse some of the media attention surrounding the birth of the couple's first child. Some 15 photographers were waiting on their doorstep when Gwyneth, Apple and two bodyguards emerged.
Martin watched from the balcony of their £500,000 firstfloor-flat as Paltrow walked 50 yards pushing the black pram, then strolled slowly back to her front door.
Asked how motherhood felt, she beamed and said: "It is absolutely wonderful and I feel great." Of Apple she said: "She is wonderful. I think she looks a bit like both me and Chris."
When asked if Martin was taking well to his new role as a father, the actress gave a thumbs-up sign, adding: "He's great too."

Meanwhile, she doesn't know it yet but little Apple Paltrow-Martin has friends in high places.
One-week--old Apple's mates have their fingers in a lot of showbiz pies. But judging by the presents they have sent Apple, daughter of Oscar winner Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay star Chris Martin, the most important is Cherry Pie.
That's the Los Angeles baby store which took an amazing £5640worth of orders in the couple of days after Apple's birth last Friday. Cherry Pie refused to say which celebrities had ordered gifts.
But stars known to turn there for presents include Madonna, who was one of the first friends to ring to congratulate the couple on the birth. Their other celebrity mates include British actress Sadie Frost and designer Stella McCartney.
Gifts ordered from Cherry Pie included a £24 child's swimsuit, pink suitcases with cashmere booties and a stuffed bunny and a tiny £18 bright yellow sundress. Friends also bought a £64 package of baby care products and a set of bibs, each with a different day of the weekon the front,for £45.
A spokeswoman for the store said: 'A number of the people who bought gifts are household names. It shows what a popular couple they are.'
