KEVIN COSTNER's kids are urging the movie star to wed girlfriend CHRISTINE BAUMGARTEN - even though she's closer in age to them than him.
The 26-year-old has charmed the WATERWORLD star's kids ANNIE, 16, LILY, 14, and JOE, 12 - just as she has her dad for the past six months -and now they're keen for him to wed her, so she can become a proper part of the family.
A family friend says, "They see how happy he is with Christine and they've told him, `She's a keeper. Get married.' "Kevin is already convinced she's the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with."
