At 65 years old, there’s no denying that Kevin Costner has still got it. The acclaimed actor, director, and father of seven (yes ... seven) children is best known for his starring roles (and unwavering good looks) in some unforgettable movies.
Some of Kevin’s most famous include Field of Dreams, and a host of '90s-era hits like The Postman, Dances With Wolves, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and The Bodyguard.
More recently, he has taken on the role of John Dutton in Paramount Network’s western drama Yellowstone, even going to extreme measures to get into character. He’s also a musician in the band Modern West, which just released a new album.
Fans have kept up with his career, which is still going strong, decades later. And we know, he’s a proud papa bear. But what about his romantic life?
Kevin’s wife is Christine Baumgartner.
Besides being a stunning beauty and the love of his life, 46-year-old Christine is a former model and handbag designer. The couple was married in 2004 at his 165-acre ranch in Aspen (NBD). This came after four years of dating — and even a break-up.
Things came to a head between the two because Kevin was already a father to four children at the time, and Christine wanted children of her own.
"She said, 'I’m going to wait for you, but not long. When you come to your senses, come back to me,'" he shared with Parade back in 2012. "And I did."
Kevin and Christine have since had three children of their own: Cayden Costner in 2007, Hayes in 2009, and Grace in 2010.
And it was actually Christine who inspired Kevin to get back into music, one of the first loves in his life.
Today, the couple are reportedly stronger than ever,— and it seems social-distancing has done them a lot of good. "Our partnership has really come into focus about what we do for each other and how we deal with our family," he says.
His first wife was Cindy Silva.
Kevin’s first marriage, which lasted 16 years, was to Cindy Silva, who was his college sweetheart from California State University at Fullerton, and mom of his first three — Annie, Lily, and Joe.
Reportedly, rumors of infidelity arose while he was shooting Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and things went downhill.
They filed for divorce three years after its release, saying they had “amicably resolved all issues regarding our children and financial affairs and a full marital settlement has been reached.”
And he was quickly linked to Bridget Rooney post-divorce.
This part isn’t nearly as romantic, but Kevin and model Bridget Rooney (at left below) unexpectedly welcomed a child, Liam, while he was fresh off of his divorce from Cindy. Bridget was called the Pittsburgh football heiress.
Of his blended family, he says, “As these children interact together, there’s always this little bit of ‘Do you care for us now as much as you do them?’ — that’s just a natural thing that happens, and you have to talk about how big love is.”
“The ability to be able to love somebody else doesn’t mean there’s less love for you. Love seems to be always able to hang on to as many people as needs to be in that circle,” Kevin shares.
We wish Kevin, Christine, and their family continued love and success — both professionally and personally.
