Love life with Kevin Costner
Kevin and his wife, Christine, met in the ’80s when Kevin was still married to Cindy Costner. They first met at a golf course. The couple has 20 years age difference. Costner and his spouse, Baumgartner, were colleagues as Christine worked as a professional model.
After a while in 1999, they crossed their ways in a restaurant where Kevin asked for Christine’s number. He told her that he would call in a week or so. They started seeing each other and later fell in love.
In 2003, Christine and Kevin had a minor setback as a couple. Kevin was not so sure about wanting kids and having a family, but Christine surely wanted one. Kevin thought that he would not be a good dad and wouldn’t be able to see his children grow as he was getting old.
However, Christine told Kevin that she would wait for him but not for long. Later, Kevin decided that he didn’t want to throw such a good relationship and person for a silly reason, and they got back together.
On 2004, September 25, after ups and downs in their relationship, Costner and Baumgartner got married. They held the ceremony in Aspen, Colorado, in their house with 400 guests. The couple made a magnificent entrance at their wedding. Kevin entered in a vintage green vehicle, whereas Christine entered in a horse-drawn carriage. It was a fairytale come true.
Although having thoughts about starting a family, Kevin and his partner, Christine, welcomed their first child in 2007. They named their first son Cayden Wyatt Costner (May 6, 2007). Wanting to have a bigger family, the couple welcomed two more children. The middle child Hayes Logan Costner (February 12, 2009), and the youngest, Grace Avery Costner (June 2, 2010).
The happy couple still lives together and raises their children out of the limelight. The family sometimes makes appearances in different movie premieres and red carpet.
Kevin’s wife started her career as a model but later chose to design stylish carrying handbags. She started the business with her friend Tamara and named it Cat Bag Couture. The business name is an anagram of Christine’s and Tamara’s names. Some of the daytime purses from Cat Bag Couture can be seen in the pilot episode in 2005 of Desperate Housewives.
Christine mentions that Kevin was immensely supportive of her business. Kevin being famous also helped to uplift her selling. The handbags can be shopped online and in Boutiques in Aspen.

She has not been spotted on any social media sites.
