Kevin Costner has gone on record in admitting something that many new moms suspect, but few will ever have confirmed: The 52-year-old actor says that in the wee hours of the morning, he pretends to be sleeping in order to avoid having to care for his ‘night owl’ 5-week-old son Cayden.
I sometimes fake sleep so my wife will get up to feed or rock him.
Besides a depleted energy supply, Kevin said that having Cayden so late in life has made him more aware of his own mortality, saying that "my fundamental fear is that I will die and someone else will have to raise my new baby."
I fear I won’t get to coach him in terms of what it is to be a man.
Cayden is the first child for Kevin and his wife Christine.
