Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are both superstars in their own right, and it’s easy to forget they’ve been married for nearly three decades.
Kyra was just 12 years old when she met Kevin, who was 7 years her senior. She had gone to see a film starring Bacon with her brother and then met him afterwards.
It wasn’t until a decade later, on the set of Lemon Sky, that their paths met again. Kyra admitted that Bacon was not her type.
But she changed her mind, and the couple married the next year, in 1988.
The pair married in a secret ceremony in Connecticut then celebrated with 300 friends at the Manhattan bar Au Bar. Kevin and Kyra, who married on Christmas Eve in 1987, only invited friends and family to their wedding celebration.
Travis Sedgwick Bacon, their first child, was born shortly after the wedding. Sosie Ruth, their other child, was born in 1992.
Sosie has followed in her parents’ footsteps by starring as Skye Miller in the Netflix adolescent drama “13 Reasons Why.” Travis works as a solo musician and composed the music for his parents’ film “Story of a Girl.”
The pair has celebrated their 34th wedding anniversary and couldn’t be happier. In Hollywood, the Bacons’ decades-long marriage is considered a miracle.
Bacon evidently still adores his celebrity wife, and he constantly remembers to commemorate their wedding anniversary. In reality, Kevin and Kyra frequently post confessions of love on their own Instagram profiles.
Kyra realized that she and Bacon are ninth cousins once removed after an appearance on the American television show “Finding Your Roots.”
A DNA test indicated that the actor and actress were distant relatives, which gave Kevin a strange feeling, and he wasn’t happy about it.
She knew it, Kyra remarked, yet it was a bit disturbing. She did, however, add that she was fine with the discovery as long as they were not first cousins.
When PBS looked into Kevin’s family history, they learned that his 22nd great grandpa was King Edward I, who battled William Wallace. Kevin joked that his genealogy was underappreciated, and he mentioned that he and his wife were first cousins.
He kind of felt like it was a joke at his cost, he explained.
Despite the upsetting revelation, Kevin and Kyra clearly moved on, and their love has grown stronger with each passing year.
They just got the opportunity to spend even more time together while quarantined at their LA home.
Kyra also confesses that her hubby constantly makes her feel special regardless where they are.
She also praises their great chemistry in bed.
