She is the first person Kevin dated after his divorce from his first wife

Kevin married Cindy Silva in 1978

They were together for 16 years before they announced their divorce in a joint statement saying they were ending their marriage after 16 years together and that they had amicably resolved all issues regarding their children and financial affairs, and a full marriage settlement has been reached. 

Kevin, in an interview with People back in 1989, while recalling his first date with Silva, said Silva was beautiful and sweet and smarter than him. 

She represented everything about women that he loved, and he was proud that she would go out with him. He wanted to show his parents, he added. 

However, the drift in their marriage started to appear as Kevin's career skyrocketed. 

Silva filed for divorce amid Kevin's affair with a hula dancer named Michelle Amaral while filming the 1995 film Waterworld.

Shortly after his divorce from Cindy in 1994, Kevin and Rooney started dating. They dated briefly but ended up having a son Liam in November 1996

But initially, Kevin didn’t accept Liam as his son and demanded a paternity test. It was after the paternity test Kevin accepted him as his child. 

Rooney, in an interview at the time, said that she was 34 years old and fortunate to have a baby. 

And when she discovered her pregnancy, she didn’t even think of the A word, only the B word.

Mother of two

Rooney is the mother of two beautiful children, Liam and Kaitlin, whom she shares with her ex-partner Kevin and now husband Bill, respectfully. 

Koch accepted Liam after marrying Rooney. Besides that, Rooney is the stepmother of Koch’s other four kids from his previous relationships. 

Koch, during an interview, said that he is always preaching to get his kids along with one another. 

When he dies, there will be nothing for them to fight about like he and his brothers did because he is making sure that there is no financial incentive for them to fight, putting their money in trust. 

Rooney also gushed about her husband, calling him a good, kind-hearted man and generous man. 

Most people don’t see that as they see him as a businessman, she added. Liam has full support from both of his fathers. 

He played linebacker, running back, punter, and kicker in his previous school in Connecticut. He is currently working as a real estate agent.

Her husband has more than 43,000 bottles of wine collection

Her husband has a collection of a lot of things, but wine stands out as the highest. 

According to Koch, wine is something that can be consumed and can be shared with dear friends. 

Back in 2016, Koch said he had over 43,000 bottles, and once he did the calculation of how long he would have to live to drink 43,000 bottles of wine. 

Koch started drinking wine when he was in college, but then, after two or three years, he could not stand alcohol. 

He discovered he could drink wine a few years later and started visiting restaurants. 

He then thought that those little, more expensive wines might be more interesting than the mid-80s and started collecting as many as great wines he could find. 

The best wine he ever had was 1865 Latour

What's more wonderful about that was he was drinking history as well as something that was made with absolute passion and love, he said. 

His advice to the good collector is to collect what you love and like, and you will enjoy it for the rest of your life.

Net Worth 

Her net worth is currently under review. As of now, we have the net worth of her husband. Her husband has a jaw-dropping net worth of $2 billion.


  1. She was born in April 1962. She is currently 61 years old.
