Costner To Be A Dad Again

Actor's wife pregnant with their second child

KEVIN COSTNER is set to become a dad again - his wife CHRISTINE BAUMGARTNER is pregnant with the couple's second child.

The pair welcomed a son, CAYDEN WYATT COSTNER, into the world in May, 2007.

The actor has three grown-up children from his first marriage to childhood sweetheart Cindy Silva.

Costner wed designer Christine in September 2004.

He recently told America's Parade magazine he never thought he'd be starting a second family with Baumgartner - but had to agree to have kids with her before she'd marry him.

He said, "For years, fear kept me from marrying Christine. Christine wanted a child, but I was afraid I couldn't be an effective father.

"She said, 'I'm about children. If you want to be with me, if you want to get married, you should know that's part of my make-up.'

"I woke up and thought, 'Am I going to lose a beautiful woman who is willing to be with me to my very last breath because I am afraid to say yes to a child?' That's all it took. I decided I was not going to miss out on love."
