Last week Macaulay Culkin and his longtime girlfriend Brenda Song secretly welcomed a baby into the world.
A beautiful tribute to Macaulay’s sister
33-year-oldSong gave birth to a healthy boy in LA, naming him Dakota Song Culkin in tribute to Macaulay’s late sister.
Dakota Culkin passed away back in 2008 at the young age of 29, after being struck down by a car. The oldest of the Culkin siblings, Dakota, led a relatively quiet life working behinds the scenes in the film industry. Culkin’s representatives told TMZ at the time:
We can officially confirm that the victim is Dakota Culkin. This is a terrible tragic accident. We have no further comment at this time.
Culkin and Song, who played London Tipton on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, started dating back in 2017 after meeting on the set of the movie Changeland. Over the years, the pair managed to keep their relationship out of the headlines, but they have made the odd appearance on each others’ social media pages.
Last year in an interview with Esquire, Macaulay opened up about his eagerness to become a father. ‘We practice a lot’, he joked around to the magazine:
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.’
Song also spoke about Macaulay in the interview, adding that ‘you can’t be around him and not be happy:’
People don’t realise how incredibly kind and loyal and sweet and smart he is. Truly what makes Mack so special is that he is so unapologetically Mack. He knows who he is, and he’s 100 percent okay with that. And that to me is an incredibly sexy quality. He’s worked really hard to be the person he is.
‘Mack’ and Brenda recently spoke to Esquire again, this time revealing that they were ‘overjoyed’ about the birth of their first baby.
With the new edition to their family, it’s safe to say that Culkin won’t be home alone again anytime soon!
