Home Alone Actor Macaulay Culkin And Girlfriend Brenda Welcome Baby Boy
Macaulay Culkin and his girlfriend Brenda Song are parents. The couple welcomed their first child together, son Dakota Song Culkin, on April 5.
“Mother, father and baby are all healthy and happy. We are overjoyed,” the duo said in a statement issued to Times.
Baby Dakota weighed in at 6 pounds, 14 ounces (3.11kg), and he is named in honour of Culkin’s late sister Dakota, who died in 2008 at age 29 from her injuries after she was struck by a car.
Song, 33, and Culkin, 40, who both started their journey in showbiz as child actors, started dating back in 2017 after meeting on the set of Seth Green’s “Changeland”. In 2018, they moved in together.
We practice a lot,” Culkin, 40, recently told Esquire of their plans to start a family. “We’re figuring it out, making the timing work. Because nothing turns you on more than when your lady comes into the room and says, ‘Honey, I’m ovulating.’”
“You can’t be around him and not be happy,” Song, 33, added of her relationship with Culkin.
The duo has kept their relationship away from media scrutiny. They have hardly made any red carpet appearances or indulged in any public display of affection on social media.
