Time really flies by quickly. Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin is now a father after the birth of his first child with actress Brenda Song. On Monday (April 12), the couple announced that their son Dakota Song Culkin was born on April 5.
The baby is named after Culkin’s late sister, who died at 29 in an accident in 2008. “Mother, Father and Baby are all healthy and happy. Say the new parents, ‘We are overjoyed’, ” read a statement from Culkin’s publicist to Los Angeles Times.
Thirty-three-year-old Song, who rose to fame in the 2000s TV series The Suite Life Of Zack & Cody, has been dating Culkin, 40, for four years. According to People magazine, the couple met on the set of the film, Changeland. Last year in an interview with Esquire magazine, Culkin said he was ready to start a family.
“We practise a lot. 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’,” he said.
As reported by The Star, at the age of 10, Culkin rose to global stardom when he portrayed Kevin McCallister in the classic Home Alone films (1990 and 1992).
Last year on his 40th birthday, Culkin jokingly tweeted: Hey guys, wanna feel old? I’m 40. You’re welcome.”
Then he added: “It’s my gift to the world: I make people feel old. I’m no longer a kid, that’s my job.”
