Macaulay Culkin Announces First Child with Actress Brenda Song

by Anna Dunn

Many remember Macaulay Culkin from when he was a child. Now, he’s had a child of his own. Culkin and his partner, Brenda Song, were both a huge part of many people’s childhoods. Culkin infamously played Kevin in Home Alone. Song, meanwhile, played London Tipton on the hit Disney Channel series, The Suite Life of Zack and Cody.

Culkin and Song gave birth to a baby boy, Dakota Song Culkin, named after Macaulay Culkin’s sister, who passed away in 2008. The healthy baby boy weighs 6 pounds and 14 ounces. The couple put out a joint statement saying that they are “overjoyed.”

Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song’s Relationship

Culkin and Song met on the Changeland movie set in Thailand a few years ago. They moved into what’s described as an adorable house together. Culkin painted a yellow brick road right up to their front door. They have three cats, a fish, a Shiba Inu, and a parrot. Now, that home has a new resident.

As far as their relationship goes, they’ve only shared words of adoration for each other. According to Esquire, Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song enjoy wearing matching pajamas and baking together. Song has said of Culkin, “You can’t be around him and not be happy.” It’s one of the many tender things they have said about each other over the years they’ve known each other.

Culkin has said of Song that when they first started dating, he was “Waiting for the other shoe to drop.” From what it looks like, it never did. He mentioned in 2018 that he wanted to start a family with her. Culkin and Song had something in common from the moment they met; both grew up in the spotlight.

Culkin Lives a Relatively Private Life

Despite these statements, the couple’s relationship has remained relatively private compared to other celebrities, as has the pregnancy and birth. Dakota Song Culkin was born on April 5th. While Brenda Song has continued to act, Culkin only takes occasional gigs.

In the past, Song has stated that she hopes Macaulay Culkin will get back into acting and understands how hard the industry was on him, saying, “He has gone through so much tragedy; he’s had so many ups, so many downs; he’s seen the ugly side of this industry and he’s also seen the amazing side of this industry. So he can pinpoint exactly what he doesn’t want and what he doesn’t like about it. But yeah, I hope, I hope, I hope.”

For now, however, the two will have their hands full with their healthy baby boy.
