Christine is not afraid to speak what’s on her mind

At that time, he said, she told him, ‘I’m going to wait for you, but not long. When you come to your senses, come back to me.’
Christine has four stepchildren

Costner and Cindy got divorced in 1994 after a marriage of a total of 16 years. Post his divorce from Siva, the actor welcomed his fourth child with former flame Bridget Rooney. The duo named their son Liam.
