Kevin Costner plays John Dutton, widower and family patriarch on Yellowstone. 

In real life, the two-time Oscar winner has been married twice. 

As a student at California State University Fullerton in 1975, 

Costner met Cindy Silva and began dating. They married in 1978 and welcomed three children together – Annie, Lily and Jo.

In 1994, the couple divorced after giving her an ultimatum. 

Per People magazine, Cindy told her husband that she didn't like him doing sexy roles, 

so her choice was to either stop doing them or leave the film business.

After their split, Costner was reunited with handbag designer Christine Baumgartner. 

They met while playing golf in the early 1990s, and they met each other at a restaurant in 1998. 

After dating for several years, Costner and Baumgartner married in 2004. 

They have since welcomed three children – Cayden, Hayes, and Grace.
