While Antonio Banderas may have seemingly moved on from ex Melanie Griffith, the Body Double star is busy spending the holidays with the former couple's only child. 

The 57-year-old actress, who filed for divorce from the Zorro star in June after 18 years of marriage, stepped out on Tuesday in Aspen with her 18-year-old daughter, Stella

The pair was photographed running errands before the two embarked upon a little mother-daughter Christmas shopping, enjoying a low-key outing together before the holiday officially begins. 

Griffith and her daughter were both dressed warm for the chilly weather. The mother of three—who is also a parent to Dakota Johnson, her daughter from her first marriage to Don Johnson and the star of Fifty Shades of Grey, as well as Alexander Bauer, her son from her second marriage to Steven Bauer—sported a long black coat, cat-eye shades and black boots, flashing a subtle smile for the snap-happy paps.

Her daughter, meanwhile (who, we might add, is becoming more stunning by the day), was also dressed casual in a puffy black jacket, jeans and tennis shoes. 

The most recent sighting of the actress comes just one day after Banderas was spotted out with his new girlfriend Nicole Kimpel, a Dutch investment consultant who is some 20 years younger than the Puss in Boots star. The two were photographed on a jog together in Marbella, Spain, and Banderas recently told The Olive Press that they are "in the process of getting to know each other."

"She is shy and doesn't have anything to do with my work," he added. "Which is no bad thing."

Since the exes announced their split, the two had been maintaining a low profile, but they seem to be finally stepping out ahead of the New Year.

"We have thoughtfully and consensually decided to finalize our almost twenty years marriage in a loving and friendly manner honoring and respecting each other, our family and friends and the beautiful time we have spent together," Griffith and Banderas said in a joint statement in early June when their divorce was first announced.
