Kevin Costner and Wife Christine Baumgartner Divorcing After 19 Years of Marriage

Kevin Costner, the celebrated actor known for his iconic roles in hit films such as “Dances with Wolves” and “The Bodyguard,” has announced his divorce from his wife of almost 19 years, Christine Baumgartner. In a statement released by his publicist, Arnold Robinson, Costner expressed his deep sadness about the situation, which he said was beyond his control.

Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner first began dating back in 1998 and were married in a beautiful ceremony on his Colorado ranch in 2004. Over the course of their nearly two decades of marriage, the couple welcomed three children into the world, including two sons aged 14 and 15 and a 12-year-old daughter. However, Costner is also a father to four adult children from previous relationships.

Despite the sad news, Kevin Costner has continued to be in the public eye due to his role as John Dutton in the hit Paramount Network series “Yellowstone.” However, recent rumors suggest that Costner may be leaving the show after he was a no-show at a PaleyFest fan event last month. Fans were concerned that Costner’s absence, along with the absence of show creator Taylor Sheridan and other key cast members, meant that the show may be coming to an end. However, Keith Cox, a president at the Paramount Network, reassured fans that he was “very confident” that Costner would “continue with the show.”

Kevin Costner is no stranger to heartbreak, as this is his second marriage. However, he has always been open about his love for his wife, frequently posting about her on social media. In a recent post on Instagram, Costner shared a photo of the couple at the 2022 Academy Awards, where they walked the red carpet together. Costner captioned the post with the words, “How beautiful is my date?” It’s clear that Costner has always cherished his time with Baumgartner, and fans around the world will undoubtedly be sad to see the couple go their separate ways.

As “Yellowstone” prepares to return to screens for the second half of its fifth season this summer, fans will be eagerly anticipating any news on Costner’s future with the show. Despite the recent rumors, it seems that Cox’s reassurances have put fans’ minds at ease, and they can look forward to seeing Kevin Costner back in action as John Dutton once again.
