He may be a super successful actor, but Kevin Costner is also a father to seven wonderful children — and he loves having a big, blended family! The Yellowstone actor is a dad to daughters Annie, Lily and Grace, and sons Joe, Liam, Cayden and Hayes from three different relationships.
Though Kevin has admitted it’s been difficult at times to have “two sets of children” — his kids range in age from 10 to 36! — he wouldn’t have it any other way. “As [my] children interact together, there’s always this little bit of, ‘Do you care for us now as much as you do them?’ That’s just a natural thing that happens, and you have to talk about how big love is. The ability to be able to love somebody else doesn’t mean there’s less love for you. Love seems to be always able to hang on to as many people as needs to be in that circle,” he confessed in a previous interview with Mom.com.
Kevin admitted his love only grew for his children as he welcomed one after the next. Because he cared for them deeply, he had to have a sit-down conversation with his older kids about any “jealousy” that may have existed in the family. “I basically reminded [my older kids] that they were going to have twice as long with me on this planet,” the Field of Dreams star said. “I said, ‘Look, they’re not going to have what you had,’ and at that point, they all just embraced each other.”
Although every one of Kevin’s kids is different, he can’t help but laugh at some of the funny things his daughter Grace does. During a previous appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the Oscar winner hilariously recalled a time Grace put him in his place.
“[One time] I was watching [my movie] Black or White and there’s this moment where I’m coming out of a pool … and she came in and sat next to me … and she goes, ‘Dad, you’ve got a fat belly!'” he jokingly said. “And I tried to explain to her character development, that I was going to be grandpa [in the film].”
