Kevin Costner, the 68-year-old Hollywood actor, and his designer ex-wife Christine Baumgartner, 49, have found a way to communicate post-divorce, mainly focusing on their shared responsibilities for their children, Cayden Wyatt, Hayes Logan, and Grace Avery.
After ending their nearly two-decade-long marriage earlier this year, sources say the couple is intent on keeping things amicable for the kids. An insider shared with Us Weekly, “They are now on speaking terms. Things are better. They didn’t want it to get ugly for the kids’ sake.”
But those hoping for a romantic reunion between the ‘Yellowstone’ star and Christine might be disappointed, as the same source clarified that the two “didn’t want to fight” anymore rather than hinting at a possible reconciliation. This development follows recent reports indicating the couple reached a divorce settlement.
The specifics suggest that a pre-nuptial agreement played a significant role, penalizing Baumgartner if she challenged its terms. She risked paying over a million dollars and Costner’s legal fees. An insider remarked to DailyMail.com, “Christine didn’t really have a choice but to settle because Kevin had all the power.”
Despite the stress of the legal battles, Baumgartner seems ready to leave this chapter behind and focus on the future. “She was the one who wanted to settle things outside of court in the first place,” said the source. “She never wanted any of this circus. It’s been a living nightmare and now she just wants to move on and start fresh.”
