"I’d Kill For My Kids": Kevin Costner Discussed How Easy It Is To Be The Father Of Seven

Kevin Costner is a talented actor and a happy father of seven. Even though his kids are from three different relationships, the 63-year-old award-winning producer claimed it is not difficult to pay enough love to everyone.
He married his college passion Cindy Silva in 1978. The couple spent 16 amazing years together but, unfortunately, had a tough divorce. Kevin regretted the split desperately, and it took him pretty long to be able to say the three sacred words again. Annie, Lily, and Joe are the actors’ eldest children who are already over 30.
After that, Kevin had a short-lasting relationship with his girlfriend Bridget Rooney who welcomed him a son Liam. However, in 1998, Mr. Costner met Christine Baumgartner, a model and handbag designer, whom he married four years later. Now, the couple has three beautiful kids – Cayden, Hayes, and Grace – making Kevin the happiest father in the world.
The amazing actor claimed his legacy never left him feel bored. He particularly mentioned his youngest daughter, Grace, who constantly “terrorizes” the father with her inquisitive questions. As Kevin’s youngest children have hardly any idea what their father does for a living, as Grace recognizes her father on TV, she gets confused and curious with such questions as “why he has such big belly on screen.”
Costner admitted, there are moments when after a tough working day, everything you want is just get back home to the cutest creatures in the world:
I have played two roles in my life, one I get paid to do, which is the movies, and the other one is being a father, for which I’ll be rewarded my whole life.
He also mentioned about the problem of the first child. When Annie was born, he supposed there would never be a greater feeling than this; however, every new child brought him more and more repeatable emotions:
Love seems to be always able to hang on to as many people as needs to be in that circle.
Kevin Costner always admired his parents. He claimed his father did everything possible and sacrificed a lot to make him and his brother get the most out of the uneasy life. With this in mind, Kevin has the best advice to his kids that should perhaps be considered by all of the parents around the world:
Let their dreams be their dreams. Remind them that work comes with their dreams. They can’t just stare up at the ceiling.
