1. Who is Kevin Costner's wife?

Costner is now married to model and handbag designer Christine Baumgartner. And according to Denver Post, the entrepreneur has a handbag line called Cat Bag Couture, which is known for its stylish laptop bags.

While speaking with the outlet about her career, she said, "I didn’t start because I loved handbags; I started because I was missing something. I use a computer quite a bit and travel a lot. I looked for a computer bag, and they functioned, but I didn’t find anything that was right for me."

She continued, "I've always loved fashion and style, and if you can mix it with function, it's perfect."

2. How did the couple meet?

Costner and Baumgartner reportedly met during the '80s, when the actor was was rehearsing on a golf course for his movie, Tin Cup. But it wasn't until 1998 (after Costner finalized his divorce from his first wife, Cindy Silva) that the two reconnected and started to date.

In 2003, the couple had a temporary break up. And in an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, Costner explained that it was because they disagreed on whether or not they wanted kids. He said, "Fear kept me from marrying Christine. [She] wanted a child, but I was afraid I couldn’t be an effective father.”

After the couple dated for four years, the actor said, “I woke up and thought, 'Am I going to lose a beautiful woman who is willing to be with me to my very last breath because I am afraid to say yes to a child?' That’s all it took."
