Kevin Costner recently opened up about his life as a ‘single father’ following his messy split from Christine Baumgartner. The Yellowstone actor appeared on The View, where he discussed how he navigates rough phases in life and his role as a father.

Costner, who is a father of seven, shares three children—Cayden Wyatt, 17, Hayes Logan, 15, and Grace Avery, 14—with Baumgartner. During the interview, he expressed his gratitude for having his children in his life despite the challenges he faces.

Kevin revealed, “So, I have had life take some bites out of me, and I have to look at myself as a movie.” He believes that there are a lot of life lessons in movies. He said, “These tough times have been more a moment for me to look outward and make sure the people around me are all right.”

The actor continued, “Because I know I’m bruised, I know where I’m at. I’ve been really lucky, really lucky in my life. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been bruised, I’ve taken some big bites out of life, and life has taken some really big bites out of me, and I think I know who I want to be in the movies, and I think I know who I need to be in my life.”

Kevin said, “I’m a single father… that wasn’t how I drew it, but that’s where it is. I kind of love to see them succeed, I loved playing with them since they were little and I’m watching them actually talk to me about things, there’s then that shift… My life isn’t any different. They have their ups and downs, but they’re really good kids, and I feel lucky.”

“I feel lucky to have them,” Costner said, reflecting on his journey as a parent. He emphasized the importance of his children in his life, especially during difficult times. Costner’s split from Baumgartner has been highly publicized, with many focusing on the complexities of co-parenting and maintaining a strong relationship with his children amid personal turmoil.

He mentioned that staying grounded and focused on what truly matters—his family—helps him navigate through tough times. The actor’s candid discussion about fatherhood resonated with many viewers, highlighting the universal struggles and joys of parenting.

Costner’s ability to balance his demanding career with his responsibilities as a father showcases his dedication to his family. Costner’s role in Yellowstone has brought him significant acclaim, but it is his real-life role as a father that he cherishes the most.
