He opened up about the experience of being a father to seven grown-up children to Mom.me. He also explained that it was not always easy for him to be a parent to two sets of children. However, he has enjoyed every moment of it and has nothing to complain.

Costner got even more candid when he revealed about a very personal question that his children often came up with when they were grown up.

According to the actor, they often wondered which group of children was closer to his heart. They questioned him if he cared about one set of children to another.

Costner often had a very wise answer to such insecurities of his children. He stated that the only way to deal with such questions was to show the limitlessness of love. He proved to his children that it was possible to love one person without loving another person any less.

For Costner, the abundance of love for every person in a circle of loved ones is the same even when more people enter that circle.

When his first child was born, the actor had thought that he would not be able to love anyone any more than he did that child. But when he was blessed with his second child, his belief immediately changed. He realized that there is always enough room for love – especially toward one’s children.
