Macaulay Culkin is a dad! The famous Home Alone actor welcomed his first child – a baby boy – with former Disney star, Brenda Song on 5th April 2021.
The couple named him Dakota Song Culkin, in honour of Culkin’s late sister Dakota, who died in 2008 at age 29 from injuries in a car accident.
Welcome baby Dakota!
Now, you’re probably wondering how these two child stars could have a child together. Aren’t they like 15? Nope. They are 40 and 33. I KNOW! WHA??
They’ve also been together for four years after meeting on a movie set in Thailand a few years ago. They live together, have heaps of pets together and even, reportedly have a yellow brick road leading to the front door.
Macaulay has also been open after actively “practising” to become a dad. Oh Kevin, you filthy animal.
We all know Macaulay from the Home Alone franchise plus plenty of other childhood movies – My Girl, Richie Rich, The Good Son.
Brenda has been around the childhood TV series block too, starring as London Tipton in the Suite Life of Zack & Cody and Wizards of Waverly Place.
Side Note: Song’s costar Ashley Tisdale (the blonde in the photo above) also welcomed her first child this year – a little girl named Jupiter Iris French.
The world reacts
Twitter was abuzz with comments about the Macaulay Culkin baby news.
If you had told 10-year-old me that London Tipton and Kevin McCallister would have a child together one day I would’ve been so shocked,” one wrote.
What do you mean the child actor from Home Alone grew up to have a baby with London Tipton from the Suite Life,” another tweeted.
Baby Dakota weighed in at 3.11kg. No photos as of yet but the couple did release a very short statement to Esquire after the birth: “We’re overjoyed.”
