Kevin Costner’s estranged wife Christine say she’ll ‘enter workforce’ following child support hearing

Christine Baumgartner, Kevin Costner's estranged wife, plans on going to college and getting a job following the breakdown of their marriage

Kevin Costner's estranged wife Christine Baumgartner has shared her plans for the future as the pair's divorce proceedings continue.

Costner and Baumgartner announced back in May that they've ended their relationship after almost 20 years of marriage.

The two celebrities share 15 and 14-year-old sons Cayden and Hayes together, as well as daughter Grace, 13.

Elsewhere, Costner has three adult children with his ex wife Cindy Silva and another son with his former partner Bridget Rooney.

Soon-to-be exes Costner, 68, and Baumgartner showed up to court in Santa Barbara last week for a child support meeting, which went in the Yellowstone star's favour.

Baumgartner originally asked for $161,000 a month in child support from Costner, but a judge chose to slash this to $63,000 instead.

She was originally offered $53,000 a month, but the mum-of-three labelled it as 'not enough'.

$40,000 a month of this will reportedly go towards Baumgartner's rental home after the former model and designer was given a court-order to move out of Costner's family compound.

Upon leaving the property, Baumgartner was prohibited from removing certain items from the house.

A judge said in the ruling earlier this year: "Christine is prohibited from removing any other items from the property, including, but not limited to furniture, furnishings, appliances and artwork from the Beach Club Road residences and from any storage unit maintained by the parties, whether jointly or individually absent a written agreement executed or by the parties or further court order."

As Baumgartner didn't get the original fee she'd ask for from her estranged husband and is now having to pay rent, she's looking at potentially going back to college to get a degree and plans on getting a job as well.

The designer and model may go to college to get a degree.

"I will look into the steps I need to take and any schooling I need to do, and I will enter the workforce," the 49-year-old said in court last week, as reported by People.

Elsewhere, Costner discussed making time for his kids while admitting that his 'world's been a little shook up' following the breakdown of his marriage.

"I have to take care of obligations that are already in place, I have a lot of responsibilities I have to take care of," he said.

"I need to figure out how I’m going to spend more time with the children, walk them through this process.

"I am going to need to take some time for myself. [...] I have a lot to contemplate — what I have to do versus what I want to do."

The pair's split comes just a couple of years after Costner credited the pandemic for 'strengthening' his and Baumgarnter's marriage.
