Kevin Costner may have been famous for several decades now, but not everyone who knows and loves his movies will be familiar with his personal life. It turns out, then, that Costner has been married twice, while he’s also the father to seven kids. And the actor’s second marriage to model and designer Christine Baumgartner has so far lasted for 15 years – although it seems that he has a secret to making the relationship work.
Yet even if Costner remains a household name, his career hasn’t always been smooth sailing. For all the hit films that he’s made – Dances with Wolves and The Bodyguard, for example – he’s also had some major failures, such as Waterworld and The Postman. More recently, though, Costner has predominantly taken up supporting roles in the likes of Man of Steel and Hidden Figures.
And throughout it all, Costner has had to balance his up-and-down acting career with a personal life that has also occasionally been turbulent. But after having been married to Baumgartner for well over a decade, he seems to have settled down once and for all. In fact, Costner has even revealed to the media how he’s managed to finally find contentment.
