"They just drifted apart," a close friend of the couple told People. "They're both working hard on their careers and trying to raise a sweet baby together. They're still friends and they'll both raise Lucia together."

Grigorieva, a singer-songwriter, is touring with her music while Gibson films "How I Spent My Summer Vacation" in Mexico.

Gibson made his first public appearance with Grigorieva last April, just a few weeks after his estranged wife of 30 years filed for divorce.

Lucia is Gibson's seventh child and Grigorieva's second. Grigorieva has a son, Alexander, with her former boyfriend, actor Timothy Dalton.
