The proud father of seven kids is Kevin Costner. The Yellowstone actor is the father of son Liam, 26, and ex-partner Bridget Rooney’s daughter Annie, 39, Lily, 36, and Joe, 35, all adults.
They welcomed three children: Cayden Wyatt, 15, Hayes Logan, 14, and Grace Avery, 13. The Oscar winner wed his wife, designer Christine Baumgartner, in September 2004.
After 18 years of marriage to the Dances with Wolves actress, Baumgartner filed for divorce on May 1, 2023. Costner’s representative stated PEOPLE on behalf of the actor, saying,
“It is with great sadness that circumstances beyond his control have transpired which have resulted in Mr. Costner having to participate in a dissolution of marriage action.”
The child support request for Baumgartner’s three children was $248,000 per month, it was disclosed the next month. According to the lawsuit, the sum “is less than the amount needed to maintain the children in their accustomed lifestyle.”
However, Costner’s team has claimed that $123 620 is available monthly for child support based on state regulations and the actor’s financial situation.
The actor’s team responded to Baumgartner’s lawsuit stating, “Providing the minor children with more than the bare necessities does not require providing ludicrous extravagance designed to primarily benefit the supported parent.”
Fatherhood is one of Costner’s greatest joys; he previously admitted to PEOPLE in November 2022.
“You’ve got to get down on the ground and play with them,” he said. “And you teach them to be independent — and the sad part about that is they become that. I’m like any other parent: I’m trying to figure it out.” See more about Kevin Costner’s seven kids by reading on.

Costner bragged to HuffPost in June 2014 about Lily’s vocal prowess, calling her “Lily is an amazing singer and songwriter. She can be a really huge star if that’s what she wanted. I’m not sure she wants that. She’s really gifted. Lily’s way is not to knock doors down. I think she wants a quality of life … She’s seen the quality of life that we’ve had and sometimes the idea of stardom, I think, is a mystery to her.”
