By DIANNE KING
And as time passes the couple are growing more and more into a tight knit family with her four-year-old daughter Nahla.
The threesome are hardly seen apart these days and their bond was evident during a playdate in Malibu, California yesterday.

Dressed down in boyfriend jeans and a baggy grey T-shirt, the Oscar winner looked relaxed and happy as she watched her gorgeous little girl play.
Her hunky Frenchman was in a similar outfit of jeans and grey shirt while Nahla ran around on the sand in a neutral-coloured outfit.
She was joined by another little girl and had a ball as Halle watched on proudly.

The Dark Tide co-stars took some time out for themselves and were seen having a cuddle as they looked out at the ocean and soaked up the California sunshine.
But it was just a mother-daughter duo later in the day as Halle and Nahla popped to a pet supply store.
Meanwhile Halle's ex-boyfriend Gabriel Aubry could face a backlash from his supporters as it emerged that he is looking for $500,000 in legal fees and $20,000 per month in child support to look after Nahla.

The Canadian model's case was postponed last week after the judge decided his legal paperwork had not been filled in properly.
According to TMZ, a source revealed Gabriel believes he is entitled to the sizable sum because 'he needs a proper environment' to care for their daughter when she is with him.
And it seems the former couple's regular legals jousts are also taking their toll on his wallet, as he also wants the Catwoman star to stump up the cash he has to pay to his legal team.

It is just the latest twist in their ongoing courtroom battle over their daughter's future, which began when they split in 2010.
The former Calvin Klein model has also been mounting a fierce defence to his former lover's request to move their child to her fiance's native Paris.
The actress recently spoke of how a move to France would be to better protect her child from stalkers and paparazzi.
The 45-year-old told Extra: 'Yeah, there are laws like in France, which is the reason I want go there.

'Laws that protect children, protect right to privacy. All I want is for my family and myself to have a normal life. When I’m not at work, that’s very important to me.'
She has already been investigating schooling options in Paris with Olivier, and claims her ex only works sporadically, so would be able to maintain a meaningful relationship with his daughter.
However Gabriel is fighting the move and their judge has yet to officially make a ruling.
