Travis Bacon attended a red carpet event with his parents at the special screening of a movie, and fans had trouble recognizing him as the young boy they remember.
When Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick became first-time parents, they made several mistakes as any normal couple would. One of his biggest errors was accidentally locking his newborn in the car with the keys inside.
However, through the years, they learned how to be great parents and raised good children who followed in the entertainment industry. Here’s a look at them.
TRAVIS' RED CARPET APPEARANCE
In 2017, Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, along with their adult son, Travis Bacon, attended the screening of the film, "Story of a Girl in New York." The Lifetime original movie stars Kevin and was directed by his wife of over three decades.
Though Sosie Bacon, the couple's daughter, had a small part in the film, she didn't join the NYC red carpet premiere. Meanwhile, Travis came wearing a monochromatic black outfit perfectly coordinated with his parents' matching ensembles.

Kevin and Kyra tied the knot in 1988 and welcomed their eldest child Travis in 1989. In 1992, they expanded their family and had their daughter Sosie Bacon. In a previous interview, Kevin said that the proudest accomplishment of his life is his children. He explained:
"Being a parent [means] bringing them up and trying to teach them and have them learn by example to be good, decent, compassionate, hard-working people."
He added that their children grew up independent and even refused to let Kevin teach them how to ride a bike or swim. The kids never came to them for advice or help. Kevin also revealed that both he and his wife never forced their own views on their children.

Although Kevin and Kyra tried to shield their children from the Hollywood spotlight during their upbringing, ultimately, both Travis and Sosie ended up in the industry. When the time came that the kids had to leave home, Kyra felt crushed.
She revealed that being a mother was an interesting job, because if she did well, she would be fired as her children gain independence. Travis grew up to be a musician, while Sosie is an actress who was recently cast as Skye Miller in the acclaimed TV series "13 Reasons Why."
Her foray into the movie industry has opened a new line of communication with her parents. Fans can look forward to her upcoming film appearances. She was cast as Charlotte in "Stay" and Carol in "Sister Judy and the Delinquents."

TRAVIS' PRIVATE LIFE
As for Travis' private life, not much else is known other than that he is a producer, composer, and audio engineer. His genre mainly revolves around punk and heavy metal, which he plays with his band, Black Anvil.
In the past years, Travis was able to compose songs for several movies and built his own recording company. With all of his and Sosie's accomplishments, both Kyra and Kevin remain proud parents.
In a previous interview, the Golden Globe winner claimed that his pride and joy and the most significant accomplishment he has to date are his kids.

Although already grown up, Sosie and Travis remain close to each other. Last year, the actress commemorated National Siblings Day with a photo with Travis on Instagram.
Travis is also quite active on social media, mostly posting photos of him at work. Two weeks ago, he thanked his fans for all the birthday greetings alongside a picture of him with an eerie-looking cake.
Kevin and Kyra certainly did a great job raising their kids and staying happily married for over three decades. Although recently, the lockdown tested their relationship, the couple was able to conquer all the challenges.
