Macaulay Culkin and girlfriend Brenda Song welcome first child

The couple welcomed baby Dakota after a “secret pregnancy”.

Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song have reportedly welcomed their first child, a baby boy.

According to Esquire, Song gave birth to a healthy baby in Los Angeles on April 5, following a secret pregnancy.

The couple named the child Dakota, in honour of Culkin’s sister who passed away in a road accident in 2008.

Culkin met Song – who played London Tipton on The Suite Life of Zach and Cody – in 2017 on the set of the film Changeland.

The Home Alone star was immediately smitten, and shortly after getting together, they adopted a number of animals, including a dog, three cats, a parrot and a couple of fish.

Last year, Macaulay hinted that they were thinking of welcoming a tiny human to their growing squad.

When asked by reporters if they are planning on having children, Culkin said, “We practice a lot.”

He continued: “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.'”.

Last August, Brenda wished her partner a very happy birthday in an emotional post on Instagram.

“Happy 40th birthday to this magical being,” she wrote. “I could sit here and write endlessly about how wonderful, kind, loving, genuine, loyal, honest, brilliant and hilarious you are, and how grateful I am that I get to share and do this life thing with you. But firstly, that would take me an eternity and secondly, you won’t even see this because you don’t ever use Instagram.”

She added: “I am the luckiest person in the world because I am loved by you.”

Macaulay, in turn, acknowledged his birthday on Twitter. The former child star shocked his followers by writing, “Hey guys, you wanna feel old? I’m 40. You’re welcome.”

The tweet is currently the ninth most-liked tweet on the platform.
