Hi there @Justamum and welcome to ReachOut :)
It's wonderful to hear that you still have a great friendship with your kids dad. As @Mssassy has already said, it can be so helpful for kids to see both of their parents being able to get along. For some couples, separating can be difficult on both parties and the kids, but it sounds like you both did what was best for you and it sounds like it's going well :)
I'm sorry to hear that your partner doesn't like that you do things with your ex. Often, as you've said, partners can believe that something will happen and it can be difficult to help them understand. Perhaps it might help if your partner organises a gathering? Sometimes being in control of the location and event can help ease the anxiety of a meeting. What do you think?
It can also help to talk to other people, such as a professional, about what's going on. Do you think that's something you or your partner would be interested in?
I'm also going to tag in some other users for their support :) @taokat @sunflowermom @Happy @Schooner @compassion @Faob_1
