Cynthia Bailey and Leon Robinson dated in the 1990s and early 2000s when he was working as an actor and she as a professional model. Though the pair haven't been romantically involved for quite some time now, they could not be on better terms. In fact, a brand-new photo that Leon just posted proves that he and Cynthia are as close as ever.

Over the years, The Real Housewives of Atlanta alum and her ex — who share a daughter Noelle Robinson — have been open about their affection for each other. “The child comes first," Leon has said when discussing his relationship with Cynthia. "We have a child together and that is something that will never change."

He continued: "No matter how many women I may have had in my life, only one of them has given me a child. So, for me, [Cynthia] has the highest respect of anyone." The proud father doesn't just respect his ex: He loves her deeply. 

Leon added: “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. That is what our daughter [Noelle] needs to see in order to grow up.”

On September 10, Leon took to Instagram with a new photo of himself, his ex, and a sporty third person. In his caption, the father made his respect for Cynthia's role in his life clear. 

"Look at Noelle's mom, [Cynthia Bailey], sandwiched between Leon and fellow Tennis [lover] & player, longtime [friend] Boris Kodjoe," Leon wrote. In the comments, Cynthia responded to Leon's sweet shout-out with a red heart emoji, as did their daughter, Noelle.

The photo showed Leon and Cynthia looking dazzling as usual. He wore a fitted white T-shirt, while Cynthia rocked a bright orange cut-out dress, oversized sunglasses, and a radiant smile. 

It's clear that Cynthia and Leon are raising a bright, confident young woman who feels supported in all her endeavors. In the clip above, Noelle (who was 18 years old at the time) discusses her many passions. Now 23 years old, Noelle has shown interest in acting, modeling, and other pursuits. Luckily, her parents have never encouraged her to narrow down her talents.

In a 2022 interview with Bravo Insider, Cynthia said: "[Noelle's] acting, she's doing commercials, and she's an influencer, as well. She also just recently got her life coach certificate. She did a course on life coaching online which, you know, of course, I was like, 'Can I be your first patient, please?'"
