Yellowstone star Kevin Costner, 67, insists he’s “just like any other dad” trying to “figure out” paternity with his SEVEN children, ages 38-12.
Kevin Costner’s life is anything but ordinary as a mega star with major movies under his belt. But outside of show business, the actor admits that he’s just an everyday family man.
Costner, 67, spoke with People about fatherhood while promoting his new FOX Nation docuseries, Yellowstone One-Fifty.
Costner has three children with his wife Christine: Cayden, 15, Hayes, 13, and Grace, 12. He also has daughters Annie, 38, Lily, 36, and Joe, 34, with ex-wife Cindy Costner. And he has a son Liam, 26, with the ex Bridget Rooney.
‘I Work as a Provider’: Kevin Costner spoke to People about his life as a father of seven while promoting his new Fox Nation docuseries Yellowstone One-Fifty
‘I work as a supplier. I am a father and I am a husband, but the world does not revolve around me, ”he told the site. “When I’m not making a movie, I’m living on the highway with my wife, taking the kids to their stuff or waiting for them to leave a party. I’m just playing with my thumbs. People have the wrong idea of how my life works.
Costner also insisted that she’s just “trying to figure out” parenting, like every other mom and dad.
“You have to get down on the ground and play with them,” he told the publication. And you teach them to be independent, and the sad thing about that is that they become that. I’m like any other parent: I’m trying to figure it out.’

The actor revealed that he chose his son in part to continue bonding with him.
‘I did it on purpose, so he could be dating me. And the same for Cayden, the same for Grace. “This is really cool. You should come with me,” she said.
In addition to raising children, Costner has been busy with his showbiz career with two projects making the headlines.
