After exchanging phone numbers, Costner assured her that he would contact her in two weeks. In 2003, he told ‘People’ that he had no notion it could be interpreted as an insult by a woman at the time. Despite a 20-year age gap, they kept in touch and eventually started dating.
According to his pals, they had a brief feud in 2002 over the actor’s refusal to have more children. He told ‘Parade’ in 2012 that she had promised him that she would wait for him “but not for long.” He came to his senses and reunited with her in the end. They were engaged in 2003 and married in a star-studded wedding on September 25, 2004, at his 165-acre property outside of Aspen, Colorado.
Costner arrived in a horse-drawn carriage, while Baumgartner arrived in a vintage green pickup truck. They celebrated with wedding guests, including Tim Allen, Don Johnson, and Mary McDonnell, beneath a neighboring tent after exchanging vows by a stream.
Christine Baumgartner gave birth to their first son, Cayden Wyatt Costner, on May 6, 2007. Hayes Logan Costner (born February 12, 2009) and Grace Avery Costner are the couple’s second and third children, respectively (born February 12, 2009).
Professional Life and Career
After a lifetime passion in fashion and style, Christine Baumgartner began her professional career as a model. In her late twenties, though, she became a fashion designer out of necessity. She explained that she chose to make her own purses because the ones that were available, while functional, were not up to her standards.
Christine was looking for a beautiful and functional laptop bag that would suit all of her computer-related needs. She eventually made her own sample designs, impressing her then-boyfriend Kevin Costner, who pushed her to follow her dream of becoming a designer.
At the same time that they were planning their wedding, he aided her with the start-up of her business. With the support of a friend named Tamara Muro, she launched her company in 2004. Christine and Tamara’s bag collection is called Cat Bag Couture, which is an abbreviation for Christine and Tamara.
However, her partner left their joint company owing to family obligations, and the CBC brand was changed to represent her married name, Christine Baumgartner Costner. While she cherishes hard work, she admits that her husband’s notoriety assisted in the growth of her company.
