Kevin Costner’s estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, says she will further her education and get a job after losing her child support bid.
The former designer appeared in a Santa Barbara courtroom Thursday alongside her ex to discuss how they will both move forward post-divorce.
“I will look into the steps I need to take and any schooling I need to do, and I will enter the workforce,” Baumgartner said, according to People.
As for Costner, he is more concerned about his three kids he shares with the model as he admitted his “world’s been a little shook up.”
“I have to take care of obligations that are already in place, I have a lot of responsibilities I have to take care of,” the “Yellowstone” star claimed.
“I need to figure out how I’m going to spend more time with the children, walk them through this process.”
The actor also admitted he needs to take “time” for himself.
“I have a lot to contemplate – what I have to do versus what I want to do,” he said.
The actor, 68, furthered that he will also be focusing on his career while working on “Horizon: An American Saga” project that he deeply invested into. He referred to the series as a “really big risk.”

Meanwhile, on Friday, a judge ruled in “The Bodyguard” star’s favor to pay his ex $63,209 per month in child support, rather than Baumgartner’s request of $161,592.
Baumgartner, 49, bid for a high price, claiming she wanted her three kids — Cayden, 16, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 13 — to “enjoy the same lifestyle” while staying with her.
She insisted to the court that the designated amount “must allow the children to be supported at a level commensurate with Kevin’s considerable wealth, even if that level of support also improves [my] standard of living.”
The amount would ultimately fund luxury vacations with the kids, similar to the kind the actor will take them on, and housing accommodations resembling his $145 million mansion, per Baumgartner’s lawyers.
But Costner previously called out Baumgartner’s plea for extra dough, alleging she would use it to fund her own desires, including for cosmetic surgery.
And while the mom of three lost her fight for extra cash, she recently snagged a Montecito, Calif., rental home for $40,000-a-month.
However, she believes the four-bedroom estate with a pool and jacuzzi isn’t up to par with Costner’s waterfront estate
During her court testimony on Friday, the former handbag designer complained the property was insufficient for guests staying in her pool house because they’d “have to come in [to the main house] to use the shower,” per Daily Mail.
She furthered her two sons would have to share a bathroom while her daughter would have to share “with the house.”
Baumgartner, whom wed Costner in 2004, filed for divorce back in May.
And while she cited “irreconcilable differences,” the “Field of Dreams” actor claimed he is still i love with his ex.
“This is a horrible place to be, but this is where we’re at,” he told “Access Hollywood” on Friday. “It feels so bad. We’re talking about somebody I love on the other side. I just can’t.”
