Kevin Costner has been seen with one of his sons after winning a child support battle against his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner.
The “Yellowstone” star went out to breakfast with Hayes, 14, at a local hangout in Santa Barbara, California, on Saturday.
The father-son duo arrived in Costner’s limited-edition BMW Z8 Alpina Roadster—valued at about $300,000—before enjoying an hour-long meal together.
The 68-year-old actor appeared casually in a blue long-sleeved jumper with jeans and trainers, while the teen donned a white graphic T-shirt with jeans and trainers.
Costner also shares son Kayden, 15, and daughter Grace, 13, with Baumgartner.
On Friday, a judge ordered the Oscar winner to pay the former handbag designer $63,209 per month in child support. According to TMZ.
The ruling was a win for Costner, who in July was initially ordered to make monthly payments of $129,755 to Baumgartner, 49, to their three children.
Prior to the decision, she had applied to increase that amount to $175,057 in monthly installments, arguing that their children should “enjoy the same lifestyle” with both parents. However, this number was later lowered to $161,592.
I initially asked for $248,000 per month in June.
After court proceedings on Friday, the “Bodyguard” star spoke publicly about their separation for the first time since his estranged wife filed for divorce in May after 18 years of marriage.
“This is a terrible place, but this is where we are,” Costner said “Access Hollywood,” he said.
“It feels so bad. We’re talking about someone I love on the other side. I just can’t.”
Additionally, when the outlet asked him if he “still loves” Baumgartner, he replied, “Of course.”
The first star’s comments came in the wake of a controversial legal battle that lasted for several months for the former couple, who tied the knot in September 2004.

The couple had a prenuptial agreement, which reportedly detailed the amount of spousal support for Baumgartner and required her to move out of the shared family home after the separation.
In July, a judge ordered the former model to vacate Costner’s $145 million Santa Barbara compound by the end of the month after he claimed she refused to leave.
Page Six later obtained photos of U-Haul trucks moving Baumgartner to a “smaller home” on the property used for the employees.
