Fatherhood is an important part of many a man's life. Whether they are a celebrity or not, this is a role many men cherish. Actor Kevin Costner, who has had an illustrious career for more than three decades, prizes his role as a father most highly. However, that doesn't mean he hasn't made mistakes along the way. The Bodyguard actor has been married twice and is a dad to seven kids.

The 65-year-old Yellowstone actor met ex-wife Cindy Costner (née Silva) when they were college students at California State University at Fullerton. They met in the early 1970s when Cindy also harbored the dream of becoming an actress. She started by playing a princess at Disneyland during her summer breaks, according to Closer Weekly. "She was beautiful, she was sweet, she was smarter than me," Costner told People Magazine in 1989. "She represented everything about women that I like," he added.
