Kevin Costner: Oscars, 7 Kids, ‘Yellowstone’ and More

Spread the love

Kevin Costner is proud to have seven kids. The Yellowstone star has three grown children with his ex-wife Cindy Silva: Annie, 39, Lily, 37, and Joe, 36. He also has a son, Liam, 26, with his ex-partner, Bridget Rooney. The actor got married to designer Christine Baumgartner in September 2004, but they are no longer together. They have three kids together: Cayden Wyatt (15), Hayes Logan (15), and Grace Avery (13).




After 18 years of marriage, Baumgartner asked for a divorce from the Dances with Wolves singer on May 1, 2023.

Costner’s rep told People in a statement, “It is with great sadness that circumstances beyond his control have occurred which have caused him to have to take part in a dissolution of marriage action.”

The next month, it came out that Baumgartner wanted $248,000 a month in child support for all three kids. She said in the document that the amount “is less than the amount needed to maintain the children in their accustomed lifestyle.” In the end, a judge told Costner that he needed to pay Baumgartner $63,209 a month in child support.




In November 2022, Costner told PEOPLE that one of his favorite things in life is being a dad.

“You’ve got to get down on the ground and play with them,” he stated. “And you teach them to be independent, which is sad because that’s what they do.” I’m trying to figure it out like every other parent.

Read on to find out more about Kevin Costner’s seven kids.

Annie Costner, 39

Kevin Costner
The oldest child of Kevin Costner was born in Los Angeles on April 15, 1984. Her name is Annie Costner.

She started acting early on, like her famous father did, by playing Christine with Kevin Costner in the Oscar-winning movie Dances With Wolves. She has also been in The Baby-Sitters Club, The Postman, and Lazy Teenage Superheroes.

Annie eventually switched from playing to producing. She helped start Sound Off Films in 2014 and is one of its co-founders. Annie has made a number of films through her company, such as Katy Perry’s Witness Tour, The Pittsburgh Drug Trials, The Discarded: A Tale of Two Riots, and Bump and Spike.




Annie married a doctor named Dr. Danny Cox in July 2016 on the land her father owned in Carpinteria, California.

Lily Costner, 37

Lily Costner was born in L.A. on August 4, 1986. She is the second child of Costner and Silva. Lily was in two movies with Kevin Costner in 1995: The Baby-Sitters Club and The Postman. Both movies starred her older sister.

Lily can also sing very well, just like her dad, Kevin Costner, who is the lead singer of his band, Kevin Costner & Modern West, and is also an actor. Costner has used her music in a few of his movies and he also got her to sing with his band on the record Tales from Yellowstone in a duet of the song “Heaven’s Gate.”




Costner told HuffPost in June 2014 that Lily was a great singer and songwriter, calling her “amazing.” If she really wants to be a star, she can be one. That might not be what she wants. She is very talented. Lily doesn’t like to break down doors. I believe she wants a good life… She’s seen how good our lives have been, and I think the idea of fame is sometimes hard for her to understand.

Joe Costner, age 36

Joe Costner was born in L.A. on January 31, 1988. He is the youngest child of Costner and Silva. As a kid, he was in The Postman with his father and older sisters. This was after he was in Tin Cup with Kevin Costner in 1996. As of now, Joe works as an audio engineer and stage sound mixer in the entertainment business.




“Joe just graduated from Boulder. He is very good at singing. He is really getting ready for his journey and goal. Costner told HuffPost in 2014, “I think the best sign of Joe is that he’s a good person and his friends are really good people.” If you want to know how well he did in life, look at his friends and how well he kept them. There’s nothing wrong with being himself, I told him.

Liam Costner, 26

Costner had his son Liam Costner while dating Bridget Rooney, who is the niece of Dan Rooney, who owned the Pittsburgh Steelers at the time. Liam was born in November 1996 and stays out of the public eye most of the time.

Cayden Wyatt Costner, 15

Kevin Costner

Costner married Christine Baumgartner in 2004, even though he had been hesitant to get married again and have more kids after his split from Silva in 1994.

She wanted a child, but he told Parade in 2008, “I was afraid I couldn’t be a good father.” “One morning I woke up and asked myself, ‘Am I going to lose a beautiful woman who wants to be with me until the end because I’m afraid to say yes to a child?'” That was all it took… I made up my mind that I would not miss out on love.




A few years after getting married, on May 6, 2007, they had a boy named Cayden Wyatt Costner in L.A. There were some things that Costner told PEOPLE that made him nervous about being a dad at age 52, but there were also some good things about it.

“I hope I have as much energy for Cayden as I had for my first,” he stated. “My biggest fear is that someone else will raise my new baby, which would mean the end of my life too soon.” I won’t be able to teach him what I think it means to be a guy. I’d like to be the one to tell him about life. He added in jest, “I can fake like I’m asleep longer so I don’t have to do as many diapers.”




The happy dad told PEOPLE that his son Cayden was already interested in music when he was only one year old. “He has a couple of little guitars, and he listens to the band and sits on my knee sometimes when I do rough tracks,” he said. “He likes a good beat.”

The star also talked about how he and Baumgartner were getting Cayden ready to be a big brother since they were going to have their second child soon. Costner said, “We tried to get him ready.” “We showed him the bassinet where the baby is going to be, and he started throwing junk in there.”

John Hayes Costner, 15

Kevin Costner

On February 12, 2009, in L.A., Hayes Logan Costner was born. He weighed 8 pounds and 15 ounces. When he was born, Costner said that his name came from a cowboy character in a Western movie he was working on. He also said that Hayes is “a great Western name.”




The actor Kevin Costner talked about Hayes’s early involvement in sports on the show Today. “We’re at all the Little League games, we’re in that car constantly, we’re trying to get the kids on the same team so we won’t have to go to three different practices,” the actor said.

That’s why poor little Hayes, who’s in the middle, has to play with 8- and 9-year-olds when he’s only 7 years old. But he can handle it. At some point, he will ask, “Why was I always forced into leagues?”

The only thing Hayes and his brothers do when they’re not doing normal kid things is go to their dad’s movie premieres. To see Costner’s movie The Art of Racing in the Rain in L.A. in 2019, the whole family went. Costner did the voice of Enzo, a dog who wants to be human to help his owners, Milo Ventimiglia and Amanda Seyfried.




Hayes also has a small part in Horizon, Kevin Costner’s four-part western drama. The father of seven told PEOPLE that he was choosing his son for a reason other than what was right.

Price said, “He’s very good.” “But I kind of did it on purpose, so he could be hanging out with me.”

Grace Avery Costner, 13

Kevin Costner

Grace Avery Costner, 13 years old: On June 2, 2010, in California, Costner and Baumgartner had their third child, a girl named Grace Avery Costner.

Grace started to understand why her dad had to change how he looked for his big hits when she was five years old. When Costner was getting ready for the action movie Criminal, he told Today, “My kids are kind of used to that—Chris has to explain, ‘Daddy looks a little different sometimes at the PTA meetings.'” He said, “If I come home — and that haircut I actually had was pretty severe — and Gracie looks at me and then looks at Mom and says ‘Daddy’s been fighting again, huh?'”




Grace isn’t into sports like her boys are. Costner talked about his “girly girl” and her hobbies in the same interview with Today. “She’s sewing and she’s dancing, but when she sees the ball bouncing out in the backyard I can feel her gravitating out with the boys — but everything has to stop when she plays,” he explained.
