Father's Day Fail: Kevin Bacon Locked Newborn Son in Car

by at .  Updated at .

Kevin Bacon confessed that he has made some big mistakes as a father - and in 1989 he certainly didn’t win Father of the Year.  And this big mistake certainly didn't land him on our list of celebrity dads we love (although we do love Kevin Bacon).

Kevin Bacon and Son

The 56-year-old star told Vulture during an interview at the BAMcinemaFest that in 1989, he accidentally locked his newborn son, Travis, in the car.

That’s a BIG oooooops.

Bacon said, “When my son was born [wife Kyra Sedgwick and I] took him back from the hospital. We locked a newborn in the car with the keys in the car and the motor running.”

“A guy from the garage put his fist through the window and broke in because my wife and I were obviously panicked. My publicist is laughing at me. We were new parents. You know, it was hard.” 

Luckily, baby Travis was fine.  He is now alive and well and is working as a musician.  Travis even attended the BAMcinemaFest with his dad to support Bacon’s new film Cop Car.

Kevin and Kyra Sedgwick married in 1988, the year before Travis was born. They are also parents to 23-year-old Sosie, an aspiring actress.

Bacon and Sedgwick have a weird relationship for Hollywood—they are still together and love each other.

In 2013, Bacon told Larry King “I think that we just really, really enjoy each other’s company.”  

“I think that we are kind of meant to be together,” he added.
