[post_page_title]A reluctant father[/post_page_title]
As Rooney and Costner’s relationship was coming to an end, Rooney gave birth to a son in 1996, whom she named Liam. However, Costner refused to recognize the son as being his until he was pressured by Rooney into taking a paternity test.
When the test confirmed that Costner was indeed the father, he opened up a trust fund for his son. Yet, Costner saw very little of Liam, with reports that he would visit him “occasionally.”
