Costner spoke to Mom.me about his experience being a father. He opined that parenting was not a cakewalk, especially when there are two sets of children involved, but, he has nothing to complain about.
The 63-year-old actor felt that when his children talked to each other, there was always the latent subject in their minds. They would always ponder as to which group of children he loved more or if he cared more about one wife's children over the others.
According to him, the method to be used to handle such self-doubt is to continually highlight the immeasurable feeling that is love and showing that it was very much possible to love one without it affecting the love for another.
Costner believes that even if the number of people in a family is high, there is an ample amount of love for every member. The actor remembered how blessed he felt when his first child was born.
He recalled his thoughts when his first child was born. He had assumed that he could not love the children he would have in the future as much as he loved his firstborn.
This belief of the actor changed promptly after the birth of his second child and his entry into Costner's life. It made him realize that there was more than enough space for love in a person’s life, especially for his children.
Costner also mentioned how he responded to his older children when they showed signs of jealousy when all his attention would be focused towards their younger brothers and sisters.
He used to reassure them by saying that being an older sibling meant they got to him for twice as long when compared to the younger ones.
Costner loves his big family that he is blessed with and said that he wouldn’t have it any other way.
