“I am the most embarrassing person all of a sudden — no, it’s been a couple good years that I’ve been the most embarrassing person,” she told the host of motherhood.
“Like, ‘Oh my God, there she goes again,’ ” Rachael Ray chimed in.
“If I do anything silly at all in public, the color drains from [Apple’s] face,” she continued. “Any silly jokes, or if I dance, like in a store, God forbid. She’s like, ‘Mom.’ I’m like, ‘Okay, sorry, got it.’ “
“I mortify her. Totally,” she admitted. “We walked into a store the other day and there was some really great song playing … and she just looked at me and she was like, ‘Don’t even think about it.’ “
“I was like, ‘Oooh, Apple,’ ” Paltrow recalled of their conversation, miming the beginnings of a dance move, “and she was like, ‘Do not, Mom!’ “

During her cooking-powered visit to Ray’s show, Paltrow revealed that while “Apple is less” of a daring eater, Moses “loves to cook” and is her “little foodie adventure pal” both inside and outside the kitchen.
“We love to go out in L.A. and find some crazy dim sum place far away from where we live,” said the proud mom. “And he loves to cook. He loves to be in the kitchen. He’s just the sweetest. … He’s a very open eater.”
Paltrow’s cookbook The Clean Plate: Eat, Reset, Heal is available now on amazon.com.
