Naomi’s outing comes shortly after DailyMail.com exclusively learned on Thursday that her ex, Liev Schreiber, is expecting his first child with girlfriend of five years, Taylor Neisen.
Watts and the actor had previously begun dating back in 2005, and welcomed their first child in 2007, and their second the following year in 2008.
However, after eleven years of being together, the two stars chose to go their separate ways in September 2016, but have maintained a healthy co-parenting relationship.
At the time of their split, the pair released a joint statement to further express their decision, which read, ‘Over the past few months we’ve come to the conclusion that the best way forward for us as a family is to separate as a couple,’ per Us Weekly.
‘It is with great love, respect and friendship in our hearts that we look forward to raising our children together and exploring this new phase of our relationship.’
The statement concluded with, ‘While we appreciate your curiosity and support, we ask the press to be mindful of our children and respect their right to privacy.’
Since the end of their relationship, Liev began dating Taylor, a former beauty pageant contestant, whom he was first romantically linked with in 2018.
After meeting on set of the Netflix drama series, Gypsy, Naomi began dating fellow actor, Billy Crudup in 2017.
Earlier last week, Liev and Taylor were seen opting for casual comfort as they enjoyed a peaceful stroll together in NYC.
Neisen appeared to be sporting a baby bump as she donned a pair of leggings and a plain top while walking their adorable pup.
