Evans' post comes weeks after news that she and Kaiser's father, ex Nathan Griffith, had reached a resolution in their long-fought custody battle.

The mom will have primary custody, while Griffith will have his son every other weekend, according to TMZ. Griffith's mother will be allowed to babysit while the boy is visiting his father, and Kaiser will stay with his grandmother every fifth weekend, the outlet reported.

The exes also reportedly worked out a holiday schedule, which includes alternating Thanksgiving and splitting Christmas.

While both parents share legal custody, Griffith must keep Kaiser within two hours from Evans during visitations, according to TMZ. Evans and Griffith were reportedly ordered to refrain from talking negatively about each other in front of their son.

In addition to Kaiser, Evans is mom to 11-year-old son Jace (with ex Andrew Lewis) and 3-year-old daughter Ensley (with husband David Eason).
