With a movie coming out this winter in which he plays President Richard Nixon’s chief of staff, and his fifth album with his band, the Bacon Brothers, coming out next month, Kevin Bacon has a lot to be grateful for. Kevin’s greatest pride and joy is his family of four. Kevin recently revealed how he knew his gorgeous wife, Kyra Sedgwick, was the one for him. He also talked about his greatest hopes for their two children, 19-year-old Travis and 16-year-old Sosie.
On how he knew Kyra was “the one” for him: “When I look back, the thing that blows my mind is how young she was when we met. But she had this wisdom. With a lot of actors, you’ve got to chip through the surface to see who the real person is. But she didn’t have any of that. She was this very tough, smart, very real person, incredibly emotional and passionate. It didn’t seem weird to me that we were getting married and having kids so quickly.”
On his greatest hopes for their 2 kids: “[I want them to know] That there are many different kinds of success. If you are a compassionate human being who can relate to a lot of different kinds of people and cares about the world outside of [your] own sphere, then that’s a tremendous success. Our kids could go off and be actors or singers or work at McDonald’s for the rest of their lives if I felt they were truly happy.”
