Kevin Costner is not just a successful actor, musician, and Academy Award-winning director. He is also a doting father to his seven children. Speaking to PEOPLE this month, The Bodyguard star revealed that "fatherhood is one of his greatest joys." The 67-year-old Costner and his wife Christine, 48—who have been together for the past 18 years—have three children together: sons Cayden (15) and Hayes (13), and daughter Grace (12). He is also a father to daughters Annie (38) and Lily (36), and sons Joe (34) and Liam (26), from previous relationships.

"You've got to get down on the ground and play with them," Costner told the outlet. "And you teach them to be independent and the sad part about that is they become that. I'm like any other parent and I'm trying to figure it out." Costner also shared that he loves spending time with his family when he is not working. "I work as a provider. I'm a father and I'm a husband, but the world doesn't revolve around me," he said. "When I'm not making a movie, I'm living and on the freeway with my wife, getting the kids to their stuff or I'm waiting for them to come out of a party. I'm just twiddling my thumbs. People have a wrong idea about how my life works."
