Kevin Costner isn’t always tough love like his character in Yellowstone. The actor actually has seven children between three relationships.
It must be a theme for Hollywood cowboys to have a plethora of kids, because as we have reported about Clint Eastwood’s eight and John Wayne’s seven children. Although Costner didn’t have six different women to mother his children like Eastwood, he resembles Wayne’s mere three.
Let’s meet the lucky children of the bad*ss 66-year-old cowboy.
Annie: Kevin Costner’s Oldest Child
First, Kevin Costner married Cindy in 1978. Together they had their first child, Annie, in 1984. The oldest Costner resembles her father with her striking dark features.
The 36-year-old lives in Los Angeles and follows in her father’s footsteps by working as an actress and film producer. She founded the production company Sound Off Films in 2016, which has a primary focus in creating documentaries and nonfiction storytelling.
She can be seen in movies like Dances with Wolves, The Postman, and The Baby-Sitters Club. IMDb also reports that Annie is currently working on the film Mother.
In 1986, Kevin Costner and Cindy welcomed their second daughter, Lily.
At the age of 34, Lily has also inherited her father’s ability to act and sing. Lily and Costner’s band, Kevin Costner & Modern West, worked together on a song called “Heavens Gates,” where Lily is the lead vocalist. The beautiful piece is featured on the show Yellowstone.
She has appeared in movies alongside her old sister, Annie, like The Postman and The Baby-Sitters Club. Most recently, she starred in the 2014 film Black or White with Costner.
Joe: Kevin Costner’s First Son
The last child that Cindy and Costner had together before their split in 1994 was Joe. Joe was born in 1988 and has dabbled in acting like the rest of his immediate family.
It must have been a Costner family reunion on set because Joe also appeared in The Postman. In addition, he is known for his work in movies like Tin Cup, Oasis, and Hawaa in 2019.
After Cindy and Kevin Costner’s divorce, the actor began dating Bridget Rooney. Bridget is the daughter of Pittsburgh Steelers owner Art Rooney. By November of 1996, the couple welcomed their son, Liam. However, Kevin Costner and Bridget Rooney never made a public appearance together. Neither have confirmed or denied being married to one another.
Now at the age of 25, Liam prefers his privacy more than being in the public eye. So, as of now, Liam hasn’t taken up a career in acting.
According to Celeb Suburb, Kevin Costner visits his son “occasionally, but not on a regular basis.”
In 2004, Costner married his current wife, Christine Baumgartner. By 2007, the couple had their first child together, a beautiful baby boy named Cayden. Cayden frequently struts the red carpet with his father but has yet to show an interest in the entertainment industry. Costner describes Cayden as his “tough boy.”
Next, Kevin Costner and Baumgartner had another boy, Hayes, in 2009. His dad describes the 11-year-old as his “gentle boy.”
Grace: Kevin Costner’s Youngest Child
His youngest child blessed his life in June of 2010. Grace might only be ten, but Costner reveals that “she’s the one that puts me in my place for sure.” She also is his harshest critic. When Grace watched Black or White with her father, she unhesitantly points out his “fat belly.”
Kevin Costner is very close with most of his children, however. Even though they have a 26-year age range, most, if not all, live in California still. I bet that makes Thanksgiving very easy to travel for.
