Naomi and Liev announced their split in late 2016 after 11 years together. They never married.
In December, Naomi celebrated Kai’s 13th birthday on Instagram with a solo shot of the teen.
‘My darling Kai, 13 today! What?!’ she captioned the post.
‘You shine the brightest light, from the depth of your soul, we feel it. Thank you for choosing me as your mummy. I’m beyond proud of you.’
‘Happy birthday baby (baby forever!) we celebrate your mind, your talent, your wit and your incredible courage today and every day.’

Back in 2019, Naomi opened up about co-parenting with Liev after their separation.
‘Having a good relationship has always been our endgame, and we’ve put a lot of energy and effort into making that so,’ she told Sunday Times Style magazine.
‘It’s not always a cakewalk, as they say in America. But it makes complete sense that it is an absolute priority, because it really matters to the children.
‘You can see how there are so many things that can make a kid feel anxious, and knowing that their parents can be in the same room and joyfully, it means a lot to them.’
