Kevin Costner, the Hollywood actor, has revealed that his long-term marriage with his wife, Christine Baumgartner, almost didn’t happen because of his fear of having more children. Costner shared that he was in a rough place after getting divorced in 1994 and that his faith was shaken. He met Baumgartner in 2000 and the two dated for nearly two years before separating. However, Baumgartner had expressed that they would get back together at some point in the future.

In an interview with US Weekly, Costner admitted that fear kept him from committing to his now wife, whom he has been with for almost two decades. He shared that Baumgartner wanted a child, but he was afraid he couldn’t be an effective father. However, he didn’t want to lose the love of his life and so he decided to take the chance. The couple got back together and eventually got married in Aspen, Colorado, on September 25th, 2004.

Costner is a father to seven children, three with his ex-wife and four with Baumgartner. He has spoken openly about the challenges of being a divorced father and how it was a huge loss for him, but he also mentioned that the thing he was most afraid of, ended up saving his life.
