Cole and Khale’s “quarantine bae” photo comes nearly two weeks after they were spotting reuniting with the “Heaven Sent” singer’s estranged husband, Daniel “Booby” Gibson.

The mother of two and Gibson β€” with whom Cole shares 10-year-old Daniel Gibson Jr., officially split in 2017 after she filed for divorce against him; they have yet to finalize the divorce.

Khale reflected over the moment: “Late post but we celebrating ya B Day all week u heard! Glad we were able to come together and make ya day special πŸ’ͺ🏾,” he wrote.

Fans commended Cole and Gibson for setting aside their past troubles to co-parent their son.
