Former Wife of Kevin Costner Acknowledges Romantic Involvement with Common Friend Josh Connor

Christine Baumgartner is no longer hiding her relationship with Kevin Costner’s former friend. The couple shamelessly held hands in Montecito, revealing their romance months after Christine’s divorce was finalized.

The actor’s former spouse was seen in public with financier Josh Connor on Tuesday, confidently strolling hand in hand. They opted for sporty outfits as they took a leisurely walk around the upscale SoCal town. Their public display of affection leaves no room for doubt.

CB and JC couldn’t keep their hands off each other, engaging in constant displays of affection. Although there was no kissing involved, they were seen holding hands and even wrapping their arms around each other’s waists.

Rumors about Christine and Josh started circulating shortly after Christine filed for divorce last May. In July, the two went on a Hawaiian vacation together, leading to speculation about the nature of their relationship. While sources connected to the Costner divorce claimed that they were just friends at the time, some doubted the validity of these claims.

Baumgartner later reiterated her stance in court, denying that she had gone on a romantic trip with Josh. However, it is evident that their relationship is still filled with romance to this day.


Christine and Kevin finalized their divorce in February, bringing an end to one of the most tumultuous separations in Hollywood. The specific terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but it is known that a judge upheld their contentious prenuptial agreement.

By the way, the exes requested joint custody of their three children and the court ruled that Baumgartner should receive a substantial amount of $63,000 in child support from the Yellowstone actor. It seems that Christine and Josh have moved out of the friend zone and are now making their relationship public to the world.
