Keith was born in 1986, and their girl Taylor in 1989. After eighteen years of marriage, they got a divorce in 2001. Costas once tongue in cheek promised Minnesota Twins player Kirby Puckett that he would name the child Kirby off chance that he was batting more than .350 when his kid was born. Kirby was hitting better than .350, but Bob's child at first was not given the name of Kirby. After Puckett helped Costas remember the understanding, the birth name was changed to "Keith Michael Kirby Costas."
