Is Kevin Costner’s Relationship With His Children Anything Like The Dutton Family?

Kevin Costner is a world-renowned actor and the definition of an A-list star. He’s been the lead in many movies and the face of even more tabloids. Kevin is also the star of Yellowstone, where he plays John Dutton.

As the patriarch of the Dutton family, his relationship with his kids is the main focus of the show. There’s a lot of drama and chaos due to their wealth and the way John leads his family, hoping for one of his kids to take over the ranch when he passes away.

Kevin’s relationship with his children is actually somewhat similar to that of John Dutton. Here’s everything to know about Kevin Costner’s career, and his real family’s somewhat bizarre resemblance to his fictional family.

5/6 How Many Wives Has Kevin Costner Had?

Kevin has had two wives, and that’s not the only romance he’s been a part of.

He married Cindy Costner in 1978. They divorced primarily due to Kevin’s tough schedule and enormous level of fame. Cindy also expressed to Kevin at multiple points that he needed to slow down on his high level of heartthrob roles, even giving him an ultimatum at one point.

He married Christine Baumgartner in 2003. A fashion designer and model, they’ve been together for over twenty years and have had three kids. Their relationship doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.

Other relationships he’s had have been with supermodel Elle Macpherson and actress Bridget Rooney, the latter of which he had his child Liam with. Overall, he’s had three baby mamas in total.

4/6 The Truth About Kevin Costner’s Children

Kevin has seven kids with three different women.

With his first wife Cindy, Kevin had his oldest daughters Annie and Lily, as well as a son named Joe. He had numerous flings after that, but only one resulted in a child. With Bridget Rooney, he had his son Liam. Then after he married model Christine Baumgartner, they had three children together. The two oldest were Cayden and Hayes, who were born in 2007 and 2009. Kevin’s last child was his daughter Grace, born in 2010.

3/6 How His Family Compares To The Dutton Family

Yellowstone is a show that started all the way back in 2018. It’s focused on the Dutton family, who owns the largest ranch in the world, headed by Kevin’s character John. There’s a lot of chaos among the Dutton siblings. The oldest sibling, Lee, was taken out early on in the show. His other sons include Jamie, who is a politician, and Kayce, a Navy SEAL. His lone daughter is Bethany who’s focused on keeping the family and its wealth together.

His oldest daughter, Abigail, owns her own film studio called Sound Off Films. The production company is focused on documentaries and other non-fiction/education-based film projects. Lily Collins followed in her father’s footsteps and became an actress. Her biggest role was as Lily in the hit family comedy The Babysitters Club. His other child with Cindy, Joe, was a child actor just like Lily. Meanwhile, his sole child with Bridget Rooney, Liam, is a real estate agent, just like Bethany from Yellowstone. Liam even has a degree from Yale.

2/6 Liam Costner’s Crazy Family Connections

Liam’s dad is an actor that everybody knows. But the family connections on his mother’s side are just as interesting.

Liam is the only child that Kevin and Bridget Rooney had together. Bridget was an aspiring actress when Kevin met her. She’s had small roles in films such as Zombie or Not Zombie. However, her real claim to fame is being the heiress of the Pittsburgh Steelers.

After seeing Kevin for a while, Bridget eventually moved on and married. So if you add all of that up, Liam has the potential to inherit from Kevin Costner, the Koch family, as well as the legendary Rooney family. With his real estate background, he might not even need any of that money. He’s already inherited $800 million dollars in stock, however, from being a member of the Koch family.

1/6 How Kevin’s Exes Feel About Him

It can be tough to end a sixteen-year marriage. For Kevin, his divorce from Cindy was made even tougher when she was awarded over 80 million dollars in their divorce settlement. Cindy herself has moved on to activism and philanthropy but hasn’t commented much on her famous ex since the two went their separate ways.

As mentioned earlier, Bridget moved on and married William Koch. Her relationship with Kevin Costner was short-lived, and there appear to be few hard feelings between them at this point in time.
