Two of Hollywood’s biggest former child stars just welcomed a child of their own.
Actors Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin, best known for their respective breakout roles in “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody” and “Home Alone,” announced the birth of their baby boy Monday, and the internet is sufficiently shook. Dakota Song Culkin, named after Culkin’s late sister, was born April 5 in Los Angeles.
“Mother, Father and Baby are all healthy and happy,” read a statement from Culkin’s publicist, provided to The Times. “Says the new parents, ‘We are overjoyed.’”
Twitter was abuzz Monday morning with astonished reactions to the celebrity couple’s baby news, as many were unaware they were a couple at all. According to People magazine, the entertainment industry veterans have been together since 2017 after meeting on the set of the film “Changeland.”
“We practice a lot,” Culkin, 40, recently told Esquire of their plans to start a family. “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.’”
