Kevin Costner’s 7-Word Response About Ex-Wife’s New Man Shocked Everyone!

If you follow the entertainment world, you probably know about the high-profile divorce between Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner last year.

The couple had been married for 18 years before Christine filed for divorce, saying they had “irreconcilable differences.” Costner was reportedly shocked by her decision, and their divorce became a big news story throughout most of 2023.

The divorce was finalized in September, and now it looks like both Costner and Baumgartner are moving on. Costner is said to be dating US singer Jewel, while Baumgartner recently confirmed her romance with former neighbor Josh Connor.

Given their public court battles and the way they separated, it’s clear that there isn’t much love left between Costner and Baumgartner.

They have three children together: sons Cayden, 15, and Hayes, 14, and daughter Grace, 12. Costner has been ordered to pay $63,209 per month in child support, but it seems that the happy family days they once had are now a thing of the past.

Interestingly, neither Kevin Costner nor Christine Baumgartner had talked about each other’s new relationships so soon after their marriage ended—until now.

Last week, there were reports that Costner suspected his ex-wife might have been having an affair with their neighbor, Josh Connor. Recently, the 69-year-old actor gave a brief response when paparazzi asked him about Baumgartner and Connor’s new relationship.

In a video obtained by Entertainment Tonight, Costner was asked what he thought about his ex-wife dating their former neighbor.

Costner simply replied, “I don’t have a next-door neighbor.”


Earlier this month, the Daily Mail published a series of photos of 49-year-old Christine Baumgartner and Josh Connor. One of the photos showed Christine, who is a fashion designer, dropping Josh off at his home.

The two were first seen together on a summer vacation in Hawaii last July. During her divorce court proceedings, Baumgartner was asked if Connor was her boyfriend.

“No,” Baumgartner said. She also insisted that Connor stayed in a separate room during their vacation. However, The Daily Mail reported that Baumgartner and Connor took a second trip to Hawaii in December.
