Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are superstars in their own right and we’d all be forgiven for forgetting these two have been married for over three decades.
Kyra was just 12 years old when she first met Kevin, 7 years her senior. She had gone to see a movie with her brother, which starred Bacon, and then met him after.
It wasn’t until a decade later that their paths crossed again on the set of Lemon Sky. Kyra revealed that Bacon wasn’t really her type.
“He definitely wasn’t my type. In fact, I vividly remember looking at his butt when he walked away after we first met and thinking, Well, I guess some girls like that,” Kyra admitted to Wide Open Country.
But she changed her mind and the two married the following year, in 1988.
The couple tied the know in a private ceremony in Connecticut and had a reception for 300 guests at the Manhattan club Au Bar. Kevin and Kyra, who got engaged on Christmas Eve in 1987, only invited friends and family to their reception.
Shortly after the wedding, they welcomed their first child Travis Sedgwick Bacon. Their other child, Sosie Ruth, was born in 1992.
Sosie follows in the steps of her parents and has starred as Skye Miller in the Netflix teenage drama” 13 Reasons Why”. Travis makes a living as a solo musician and has written the music for his parents’ movie “Story of a Girl.”
Now 34 years later the couple is celebrating their anniversary and couldn’t be happier. The Bacon’s decades-long marriage is something of a miracle in Hollywood.
“If someone had told me that at 22 I was going to meet the man I was going to marry and at 23 I would marry him and have a child, I would have told them they were out of their mind,” Kyra told Redbook in 2008.
Bacon is clearly still as much in love with his star wife, and he always makes sure to celebrate their wedding anniversary. In fact, both Kevin and Kyra often post declarations of love on each of their Instagram accounts.
