They ended their relationship months ago, but actress Halle Berry and model Gabriel Aubry have remained friends for the sake of their daughter and the pair put on a united front as they stepped out with two-year-old Nahla during a visit to London.
The trio looked to be enjoying each other’s company as they visited a park and wandered through the streets in the Kensington area together.
Berry and Aubry were perfectly co-ordinated in matching grey jackets and jeans while Nahla stood out in a bright yellow jacket.

Doting father Aubry, 33, held on to her teddy bear and bottle during the jaunt but later handed them over to Berry so that he could carry his daughter on his shoulders.
Berry and Aubry split in April after four years together but they remain close and share the parenting duties of Nahla.
The 44-year-old Monster’s Ball star seemed relaxed during their recent outing, but she has admitted suffering a ‘breakdown’ when Nahla suddenly disappeared during a shopping trip.
‘I took her shopping, and I had that moment that every parent has,’ she told Vogue magazine.

‘You look away for a second and they’re gone, and your body just gets all hot. And so I had a little breakdown… I look around and, sure enough, 30 seconds later, she pokes her head out: ‘Hi, Mommy.’”
The actress says that she is now teaching her daughter to remember her name just in case she ever loses her.
‘It made me think: What if she really did get lost? Would she be able to say who she is? So that night, I said, ‘What’s your mommy’s name?’ And she looked at me like,
‘"You idiot. Why are you asking me what your name is?" I asked her again… she thought about it for a second, and finally she said, "Halle Blueberries!”' she added.

In her first magazine interview in three years, Berry also spoke of her break up with the True Religion model and said that she still cared deeply for him.
'It’s just that you realise you are not meant to go the distance with everybody,’ she said.
'We were meant to bring this amazing little person into the world. And I think that’s why we came together.
And because of that, we are going to be together forever, all three of us. We are a family until we are not here any more.'
She continued, 'We have always been friends, we’re still friends, we love each other very much, and we both share the love of our lives.
'And we are both 100 percent committed to being the best parents we can be.'
