The disgraced actor, 67, was seen holding hands with his son, two, as he ran errands in Los Angeles.
Noth’s silver wedding band and signet ring were visible as he held hands with the youngster, who was also carrying a bright orange balloon.
Out and about: Over three months after being accused of sexual assault by multiple women, Chris Noth was spotted wearing his wedding ring as he stepped out with his son Keats on Tuesday
Chris sported a striped V-neck sweater, dark gray jeans, and worn leather shoes.
He shielded his eyes with a pair of large black shades and appeared to have styled his hair with a hint of gel.
Noth shares two sons – Keats and Orion, 14 – with his wife Tara Wilson. In recent sightings following the allegations against her husband, Wilson has not been seen wearing her ring.
Noth has faced professional consequences in the wake of the allegations, as he was fired from his role on the CBS crime drama The Equalizer, and scenes set to air on the finale of And Just Like That… were removed.

In an article published December 2021, two women, using the pseudonyms Zoe, now 40, and Lily, now 31, told the Hollywood Reporter that Noth raped them.
Both of those accusers in the report claimed that Noth had sex with them from behind while stood in front of a mirror, with the first attack allegedly taking place in 2004, while the second reportedly occurred in 2015, three years after Noth married his wife, Tara, with whom he has two children.
The two women both also relieved that the attacks took place in one of Noth’s homes – the first in his Los Angeles apartment and the second in his New York City property – after the actor invited them over.
Just prior to Christmas, a fourth woman came forward with allegations, saying that Noth had forcibly groped her.

Lisa Gentile, 54, claims she was ‘sexually abused’ by the actor in 2002 when she frequented Da Marino’s restaurant in Manhattan, where she met Noth, and the two became acquaintances.
One night, she said in a statement, Noth went up to her apartment because he said he wanted to see where she lives, but once he was upstairs, she said, he kiss starteding her and forcibly pulled her against him.
He then squeezed her breasts she said, before sliding his hands under his shirt.
‘I kept pushing his hands down, while he was pushing mine up…I was trying to get him to stop,’ she said in a statement, claiming he then pulled his hand towards his penis.
She said she was finally able to push him off, after which point, Gentile claims Noth got mad and started calling her a ‘tease’ and a ‘b****.’

The next day, she said, Noth called her friend’s phone and warned her that if she told another person about what happened she would be blacklisted in the industry.
Her attorney, Gloria Allred claims that the experience was ‘traumatic’ for Gentile, noting: ‘It’s had a very serious emotional impact on her.’
One of the other women claimed the actor groped her when she was working as a hostess and lounge singer at the Midtown Manhattan restaurant Da Marino in 2010. She was 18 at the time and Noth was 55.
She claimed he was constantly drunk at the restaurant and repeatedly pulled her onto his lap while groping her and ‘pressing me onto his erection.’
In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, Noth admitted that he had ‘consensual encounters’ with the two women in the Hollywood Reporter story, both of which reportedly took place while he was in a relationship with his wife Tara, but he strongly denied any accusations that he assaulted them.
‘The accusations against me made by individuals I met years, even decades, ago are categorically false,’ the statement reads.
‘These stories could’ve been from 30 years ago or 30 days ago — no always means no — that is a line I did not cross. The encounters were consensual.
‘It’s difficult not to question the timing of these stories coming out. I don’t know for certain why they are surfacing now, but I do know this: I did not assault these women.’
