And in that time, the movie icon has acquired a gray beard—and has lost a lot of weight!
On Saturday, January 5, photographers were thrilled when Gibson and his gal made a rare red carpet appearance at the charity Art Of Elysium "Heaven" Gala in Los Angeles.
Actor/director Gibson, 63, and writer Ross, 28, basked in the attention.
The Braveheart star didn't hide his age, rocking a gray mustache and beard, while his pretty baby mama flaunted her cleavage in a burgundy-colored gown that was also cut low in the back. Ross let her long dark hair flow free.
They welcomed son Lars two years ago this month.
Gibson's love life has settled down after his long marriage to wife Robyn ended in 2011 and a scandal-plagued relationship with another baby mama, Russian pianist Oksana Grigorieva, also failed.
Oscar winner Gibson, who plans to direct the upcoming WWII epic, Destroyer, is looking much happier and leaner after reportedly losing about 30 pounds.

Gibson looked dashing at the Saturday night big celebrity event.
The star has cleaned up his act and is back in the public eye. Gibson was previously disgraced after his racist rant was caught on tape during his split from ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, as Radar reported exclusively at the time.
Gibson made a directing comeback with Hacksaw Ridge and appears to be happy in his committed relationship with Ross. According to a Radar source, Gibson has been pushing Ross to marry him—although she's younger than six of his kids, most by his marriage to Robyn Moore. He had six sons and a daughter with Moore.
Onlookers were stunned to see Gibson in a black tuxedo with a salt and pepper beard and mustache. He smiled for photos as he lovingly touched Ross' back. The two have previously been spotted around his Malibu stomping grounds.
Eyewitnesses said Ross almost had a wardrobe malfunction as she exited their black town car at the event. Her slinky dress came apart and almost showed to much!
Gibson lost 30 pounds in 2018 thanks to a fitness coach in his native Australia. Samantha Jackson told New Idea that she helped the star lose his "dad bod" belly fat with phone consultations.
Exercise maven Jackson said of Gibson, "He's thrilled the weight is off." The actor himself has noted, "I feel good, really healthy."
