The Real Housewives of Atlanta viewers know that Cynthia Bailey has a really great relationship with her ex, Leon Robinson. The former couple is supportive of daughter Noelle Robinson and finds ways to celebrate each other as well.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Noelle previously shared in an interview with The Daily Dish that she was "super young" when Cynthia and Leon separated, and now Leon is sharing more about working with his ex to co-parent their daughter, now 21.

“So, for me, the child comes first. We have a child together and that is something that will never change, and no matter how many women I may have had in my life, only one of them has given me a child. So, for me, she has the highest respect of anyone,” Leon said during an interview on the Allison Interviews podcast.

He added more insight into making it work as a family unit elsewhere in the interview. “We are a family through this child. We are always supposed to do what is best for one another and respect one another, but most of all, do what is best for the child, and the child needs to see two loving parents. Even if we are not together as a couple, we can still love and respect one another," he said. "That is what our daughter [Noelle] needs to see in order to grow up.”

Being there for Noelle means that sometimes Leon has appeared on RHOA, however, he noted, “I’ve never watched it.”

The support is always flowing for this former couple who has frequently shared loving messages for one another. Leon recently posted a tribute to Cynthia timed to Mother's Day. "Wishing [Cynthia] my friend [and] family of over 23 [years] and most important the mother of our [Noelle] a Happy, Healthy [and] Blessed Mother’s Day," he wrote alongside a slideshow of throwback photos.

Around Father's Day, Cynthia opened up about Leon's important role in Noelle's life as well. "Thank you for our beautiful daughter [Noelle]. She is truly the best combination of both of us [and] is blessed to call you her dad. Thank you for being such a great father," she wrote, adding in a comment on his Instagram, "Thank you always for our [Noelle]!"

And Cynthia meant it when she said that Leon is always there for Noelle. He recently headed out to Los Angeles to help his daughter move.
