Kevin Costner's wife files for divorce as Yellowstone actor admits 'circumstances beyond his control' led to split | The Sun

YELLOWSTONE star Kevin Costner's wife, Christine Baumgartner, has chosen to end her relationship with Kevin after 18 years.

Kevin took responsibility for the choices that drove him and Christine to divorce after almost two decades of marriage.

Christine, 49, filed on Monday, TMZ reported.

The clothing designer didn't divulge specifically why she wanted to quit the relationship.

Instead, she just declared the reason being as merely "irreconcilable differences."

A representative from Kevin's team told TMZ that the divorce is of great sadness to the 68-year-old.

"It is with great sadness that circumstances beyond his control have transpired which have resulted in Mr. Costner having to participate in a dissolution of marriage action," the representative explained.

"We ask that his, Christine's and their children's privacy be respected as they navigate this difficult time."

The estranged couple shares three children together: sons Cayden, 15, and Hayes, 14, and daughter Grace, 12.

At this time, Christine is only asking for joint custody of their kids, and not for spousal support.

In a response that Kevin's lawyer Laura Wasser, 54, filed on his behalf on Tuesday, it was acknowledged that spousal support was "to be payable to petitioner" per their "Premarital Agreement." 

Also, in the response, it was explained that Kevin wanted joint custody of their kids as well.

Christine was Kevin's second wife.

Who is Christine Baumgartner?

Kevin married Christine Baumgartner in 2004.

Baumgartner was most famously known for her work with E! Live from the Red Carpet, Primetime, and Die Johannes B. Kerner Show.

She is also a former model and current handbag designer who got a degree in Business from California State University.

Together, the two entertainers share three children: Cayden Wyatt, Hayes Logan, and Grace Avery.

While the estranged couple have three children together, Costner himself is the father of seven.

His previous children come from his past relationships with Cindy Silva and Bridget Rooney.

Costner's other children include Annie, Lily, Joe, and Liam.

It was revealed in 2012 that Costner and Baumgartner almost did not get married because he wasn't interested in having any more children.

"She said, 'I’m going to wait for you, but not long. When you come to your senses, come back to me,'" Costner told Parade back in 2012. "And I did."

Costner and Baumgartner chose to raise their children out of the spotlight on their 165-acre Dunbar Ranch; just outside Aspen, Colorado.
