Though the pair called it quits in 2003 after a long-term relationship, Reedus and Christensen continue to show support for each other. Reedus and Kruger welcomed their daughter in fall 2018 and have since been protective of details about their baby girl, occasionally sharing rare photos with her that don't show her face.

Celebrating their son's high school graduation in summer 2018, Reedus shared a selfie featuring Christensen at the ceremony, writing, "Props to this lovely lady (he graduated!!)," with the post.

Kruger shared an adorable photo of her daughter walking outside in a leopard-print dress with a purse and a Minnie Mouse stuffed toy in September for National Daughter's Day.

"How did I miss that it was #nationaldaughtersday yesterday ♥️♥️♥️♥️ ," she wrote at the time. "My little girl, you are my light not just today but every day, the best thing I've ever done, my greatest accomplishment ♥️ Keep finding your way and please grow out this molar already so I can sleep at night again 🤪."
