After seven kids, it’s safe to say Kevin Costner has picked up a few simple parenting hacks.
Namely, how to turn four-year-old daughter Grace Avery Costner into a daddy’s girl.
“She’s becoming that right now, and that’s usually because her mommy starts to say no to her,” the Black and White star admitted to E! News of his youngest child, whom he welcomed with wife Christine Baumgartner in June 2012.
“I don’t say yes all the time,” he added with a smile, “But for a while, if you want that real good attention, you have to say yes a little bit more.”
