Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick are still going strong after thirty years of marriage: Complete story here!  

How well do we know Kevin Bacon? The renowned actor and singer, 65, known for his endless list of critically acclaimed flicks like Footloose, Diner, JFK, Mystic River, A Few Good Men, Apollo 13, and more, has been a charming fixation in Hollywood for over four decades. Since the inception of the pandemic in 2020 and its continuing after-effects still felt today, Bacon has taken on the role of a social media star as well.   

Born Kevin Norwood Bacon on July 8, 1958, in Philadelphia, he had a brief stint in the theatre and soap operas before landing his breakthrough role in Footloose. Bacon's consistent and unproblematic career is just one of the many reasons he is a fan-favorite Hollywood A-lister; the other factors being his enduring marriage and blissful family life.

Bacon and Kyra met on the sets of their 1987 film Lemon Sky and fell in love while working together. Bacon's earnest efforts, little convincing, and more importantly, their shared interest, and the immediate click eventually won Kyra. "When I did fall in love with Kevin, it really just felt like there was some urgency to get married," she would say years later. 

The duo's romance was a whirlwind affair as the two got engaged within months of dating and tied the knot a year later on September 4, 1988. Almost a year into their conjugal bliss, Bacon and Kyra had ventured into the joyful journey of parenthood as they welcomed their first kid, Travis. "The minute I had a child I was like, 'God, I want to make sure there's a good place here for him," said the doting mother.

The spouses welcomed another kid, Sosie Ruth, in March 1992. Bacon and Sedgwick's relationship goes beyond their marriage. The adorable spouses have collaborated on more than a couple of projects. After their critically acclaimed performances on Lemon Sky, it was only right that they take their onscreen companionship even further.  

They starred in the romantic comedy, Pirates, in 1991, followed by Murder in the First, Cavedweller, and Loverboy, which also marked the debut of their 14-year-old daughter. The Bacon family's journey has been anything but a bed of roses like we've led you to believe so far. Like any regular couple, they've weathered many downs and appeared stronger.
