42-year-old Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin and his fiancée, 34-year-old actress Brenda Song, quietly celebrated the arrival of their second child, a son named Carson, who was born during the Christmas season. This couple, who tend to keep their personal lives private, didn’t reveal the pregnancy until a few months later.
A couple with two sons.
Culkin and Song are now happy parents to two sons. Their first child, Dakota, was born in April 2021 and was named in honor of Culkin’s late sister, who passed away in 2008. The couple shared the news of Dakota’s birth after a period of keeping it private, and they expressed their happiness with a simple statement, saying, “We’re overjoyed.”

These two actors have been in a romantic relationship since 2017, and they became engaged at the start of 2022, just a few months after the birth of Dakota.
Song expressed that her relationship with Culkin is “unbelievable” because of how wonderful it is to share her life with him. She shared that Culkin initially had concerns, saying, “I was waiting for the other shoe to drop.” However, he eventually realized that sometimes things can just be genuinely good.
Engaged in 2022, shortly after the birth of Dakota, Culkin and Song are committed to actively parenting their children. They choose family support instead of hiring a nanny, and Brenda’s mother has been helping them since the birth of their first son. Brenda mentioned that her mom would even bring the baby to the set for breastfeeding during her work hours.
They have a strong and harmonious relationship as a couple.
Brenda emphasized the value of communication, especially during the initial months of parenting. She highlighted the importance of being open and adaptable rather than having rigid roles, showcasing the couple’s strong connection and collaborative efforts.
She expressed, “I believe that when you and your partner have children, especially during the first few months, you may not always have the patience to be overly polite with each other.” She went on to say, “Being open about when you need assistance is crucial. Instead of having fixed roles, we simply adapt to each other’s needs.”
Culkin’s life before being in a relationship with Brenda Song.
After his breakup with Mila Kunis, it seemed like Culkin had accepted a future without love. However, in 2017, a chance meeting altered the course of his love life. Brenda Song came into his life while they were filming “Changeland,” a surprise that even the film’s director, Seth Green, hadn’t anticipated. Green later admitted that he “didn’t expect their relationship to develop.”
Brenda and Macaulay quickly developed a strong connection, aided by their shared experience as former child stars. The unique bond that formed due to the challenges of growing up in the public eye played a significant role in their rapid understanding of each other. Song described this unspoken connection among child actors, saying, “Child actors, we don’t even need to discuss it – you just look each other in the eye, nod, and we understand.”
In this surprising twist of fate, love reentered Culkin’s life, and the bond between the couple flourished despite any initial doubts.
