Kyra and Kevin’s older son Travis was born in June 1989. Travis has dabbled in movies and TV, like his parents, per IMDb. He had a role in the Kevin-directed 2005 movie Loverboy, where he played Lenny, but he’s done most of his work in the entertainment industry off-camera
While Kevin is mostly known as an actor, he does have a knack for music, and he has a band with his brother Michael, appropriately called The Bacon Brothers. Travis clearly took after his dad’s love for music, and he’s been a composer for a few TV movies and shorts, including the upcoming Space Oddity, which his mom directed.
Besides his composition work, Travis has performed in a few metal bands. He was a member of the Brooklyn-based metalcore outfit White Widows Pact, who released their self-titled debut album in 2013. He also joined the black metal group Black Anvil in 2016, and played on the band’s most recent album: 2017’s As Was. He currently performs with the band Contra Cult and is involved in the horror film outfit #Slashtag.
Sosie was born in March 1992, and like her brother, Sosie got her start in entertainment with a role in Loverboy. She kept acting, now establishing herself as am on-screen talent in her own right. After she made her debut, she went on to star in a handful of episodes the TV series The Closer. She appeared in the TV series, 13 Reasons Why, Narcos: Mexico, and Mare of Easttown, and in 2022 had a hit with the horror film Smile. Sosie appears to have a 2023 collaboration with her dad in the works, as well. The duo was seen filming something together in Studio City, California on Dec. 19, 2022. In January of 2023, Kevin revealed the project — a hilarious Hyundai ad in which Sosie repeatedly rolls her eyes at the actor’s dad jokes about EV cars.
While she followed in her parents’ footsteps as she grew up, Sosie admitted that it took her longer to see her parents’ work in a 2013 interview with Pop Sugar. “I don’t watch their movies and stuff that often,” she said. “When I was really little, they were kind of inappropriate. So I kind of just stayed in that pattern, but I just watched Mystic River recently, and I thought my dad was incredible in that.”
Sosie seems close to her dad as can be. The duo was captured in a silly dance video on Instagram in Dec. 2022. In the clip, Kevin and Sosie appeared in parallel shots as they wiggled along to a remix of Harry Styles‘ “As It Was,” both appearing near stables. “Different barns, same vibes,” Kevin wrote in the caption.
