When it comes to celebrity marriages, it’s not often we hear about couples who have stood the test of time. But Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick’s love story is a shining example of a Hollywood couple who have managed to defy the odds and stay strong together.
Their journey began long before they became famous. Sedgwick first laid eyes on Bacon when she was just 12 years old. Little did she know that this chance encounter would be the start of something special. It wasn’t until years later, when they were working together on the movie “Lemon Sky,” that their paths crossed again. Despite not finding Bacon attractive at first, Sedgwick eventually gave him a chance.
In 1988, the couple tied the knot and embarked on a journey of love and commitment. They are proud parents to two children, Sosie Ruth and Travis Sedgwick Bacon, who have followed in their footsteps in the film industry. Sedgwick’s most notable performance is as Skye Miller in the popular Netflix series “13 Reasons Why.”
What’s truly remarkable is that after 34 years of marriage, Bacon and Sedgwick are still deeply in love. Bacon never misses an opportunity to express his adoration for his wife, making her feel like the most beautiful woman in the room.
When asked about the secret to their long and fulfilling marriage, Bacon humbly advised not to listen to celebrities. Instead, their enduring bond is built on love, respect, and shared values. Sedgwick appreciates Bacon’s honesty and moral standards, which she finds incredibly attractive.
Interestingly, the couple discovered during an appearance on the show “Finding Your Roots” that they are ninth cousins. But this revelation did not affect their relationship. Sedgwick admitted that although they appeared to be cousins, the distant relation didn’t make her feel uneasy.
In recent times, Bacon and Sedgwick have been spending more time at home due to the pandemic. Sedgwick has been focusing on her writing, while both of them have been immersing themselves in books and television.
Their love story continues to inspire, proving that true love knows no boundaries. Bacon and Sedgwick are a testament to the fact that with love, respect, and a little bit of humor, a marriage can stand the test of time.
So, let’s raise a toast to Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, one of Hollywood’s most beloved couples! Here’s to many more years of happiness and love.
