Kai's unique fashion

Naomi's son Kai is already capturing attention and admiration thanks to the fact that he has often been spotted wearing dresses and with long hair too.

The actress doesn't seem to mind one bit as she proudly walks with her son who's apparently simply doing his own thing.

While the idea of Kai wearing dresses may be controversial, the fact remains that Naomi and Liev's children are happy. And based on the parents' words, it's pretty clear that both mom and dad have the same goals. They want to keep their friendship going so they can be effective parents.

And that really is their secret to being a great co-parenting team.
