Costner's Teen Daughter Helped With Proposal

KEVIN COSTNER's credits his teenage daughter LILY for coordinating his successful marriage proposal to wife CHRISTINE BAUMGARTNER.

The DANCES WITH WOLVES star, who walked down the aisle with Baumgartner in September (04), admits he had no idea about how he was going to pop the question to his then-girlfriend until Lily, 18, stepped in with some advice.

Costner says, "I told Lily I was gonna ask her and she thought that was really great, which has been great how the kids have received her. When I told her I was gonna do it and she started asking me, 'Well, did you get the flowers?' I said, 'No.' 'Did you get the candles?' 'No.'

"I hadn't really thought this through completely and that's what's been great about how they received us. So Lily told me exactly what to do and I went and did it. I was directed."
