It’s been an emotional rollercoaster of a year for acclaimed actor Kevin Costner. The veteran star recently won his first-ever Golden Globe award for his outstanding performance as John Dutton on the hit Paramount series Yellowstone. However, his celebratory moment was quickly followed by a tense contract dispute with Paramount over Yellowstone that briefly put the future of the show in jeopardy.
Now, with Yellowstone set to return for season 5 and his pay bump secured, Costner has turned his focus to new creative ventures. He began filming on Horizon, a passion project Western epic that he is directing and starring in. But in his personal life, the father of seven also went through a difficult public divorce from wife Christine Baumgartner after 18 years of marriage.
Amidst the chaos, the 68-year-old Costner recently experienced an emotional moment that brought him joy: attending his first-ever Taylor Swift concert.
Costner shared photos and videos on Instagram from Swift’s concert at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California. He revealed that he took one of his daughters, 16-year-old Grace, whom he shares with ex-wife Baumgartner. Costner has two adult daughters, Annie and Lily, from his previous marriage to Cindy Silva.
The special father-daughter date night to see Swift’s “The Eras Tour” led to a major revelation for Costner. Alongside his blurry concert videos, Costner declared, “I’m officially a Swiftie!”
Costner, a musician himself who began his career playing in bands, shared his deep appreciation for Swift’s artistry and live show.
“My videos are blurry, but I had an amazing time with my daughter at the @taylorswift show. I was absolutely blown away watching her art bring so many people together,” Costner wrote. “I had a great view of her band and had a blast watching them, too. An inspiring night. I’m officially a Swiftie!”
Fans were ecstatic to see the “Field of Dreams” Oscar winner embracing his inner Swiftie. They flooded his comments with reactions like “That makes you a very cool dad. ❤️” and “This is what we call a Dad win! 🙌”
Costner’s Yellowstone co-star Hassie Harrison, who plays Laramie on the show, also chimed in. “Awww wish I had seen you there! 🥳🥳🥳” she wrote.
Harrison shared her own posts on Instagram Stories showing snippets of Swift’s epic concert production. She attended with a young friend she referred to as her “bonus baby.”
