Who Is Kevin Costner Dating?
Kevin Costner is not dating anyone in 2022 since the actor is happily married. But this isn’t with his first wife, but with his second wife who became his ultimate good luck charm. In 1978, the star was married to his first wife Cindy Silva. The marriage lasted till 1994 and they even had their children Lily in August 1986, Annie in 1986, and son Joe in January 1988. But the couple failed to protect their marriage in the long run. So, they divorced.
After that, he dated actress Bridget Rooney from 1995 to 1998 and had a son in November 1996 named Liam. Even this relationship couldn’t stand the test of time. However, this divorce was also a huge boon for him as he said to “The Hollywood Reporter” in 2012, “My faith was shaken. No one wants their marriage to end, and it did. You are going to see the people you love most, your children, only half as much. That’s a huge loss.”
In 1999, he met Christine Baumgartner and that is what changed his life. But after dating for only four years, they did quit. The main reason behind their split is that she wanted a child and Kevin didn’t. In June 2018, while talking to “Closer Weekly” he said, “Fear kept me from marrying Christine. [She] wanted a child, but I was afraid I couldn’t be an effective father,” “I woke up and thought, ‘Am I going to lose a beautiful woman who is willing to be with me to my very last breath because I am afraid to say yes to a child? That’s all it took. Sometimes you learn the thing you’re most afraid of will save your life.”
This led to the man confessing his love yet again to Christine. The couple married and they are still together even today.
