After painful divorce, Kevin Costner’s ex-wife, 49, has found a new man, and you might recognize him

Actor Kevin Costner and his ex-wife, Christine Baumgartner, have both moved forward in their lives following a challenging divorce and custody battle that captured headlines. While Costner has reportedly found companionship with singer Jewel, Baumgartner has been spotted with financier Josh Connor.

Rumors of Costner’s romance with Jewel surfaced when the pair were seen together at a tennis event on Richard Branson’s Necker Island. TMZ reported that they jetted off to the Caribbean for a week-long getaway, sparking speculation about their relationship.

Costner’s divorce from Baumgartner was a difficult chapter in his life, with sources close to him revealing his shock when she filed for divorce citing irreconcilable differences. Despite acknowledging strains in their marriage due to his busy schedule, Costner believed they were managing well.

In a statement, Costner’s representative asked for privacy as the family navigated through the challenging time. Baumgartner sought $161,000 a month in child support for their three children, but a judge reduced it to $63,000, prompting Costner to express concern about inflated payments affecting his ability to pursue projects he’s passionate about.

Meanwhile, Baumgartner has reportedly found solace in her relationship with Josh Connor, whom she was seen dropping off at his home in Santa Barbara. While denying Connor as her boyfriend during court proceedings, it was revealed that he had supported her financially during a tough period.

Both Baumgartner and Connor have experienced divorce and are navigating their new relationship while co-parenting with their exes. Despite the challenges they’ve faced, both Costner and Baumgartner are moving forward with their lives, finding support and companionship along the way.
