She continued: “Mom loves you! AND!!! To all the parents who feel the same as me today! CONGRATULATIONS! Letting your babies fly isn’t easy, but let the kids fly!

They separated in 2006 and finalized their divorce in 2007, but Kate maintained a friendly relationship with him as they raised their son.

‘When I met Chris it was like nothing else; I had no doubts that I was going to have a child with him,’ she told The Times Online in 2009. ‘Every rule went out the window.’

Kate reflected on the lifelong bond she and Chris have as Ryder’s parents, saying, “No matter who he ends up with, whoever I end up with, we’ll always be together.”
