The Avengers star and his supermodel ex—who broke up in June after four years together—have always kept their child's life out of the public eye.

"They love their little girl dearly and that's not going to change no matter what," the insider continued. "They want what's least disruptive for their baby and would like to keep things as consistent as possible for her."
