Macaulay Culkin And Brenda Song Engaged After Celebrating Baby Son

Ready to feel old? Home Alone’s “KEVIN”, Macaulay Culkin is getting ready to get married to former Disney Channel star Brenda Song after the pair welcomed a child of their own nine months ago. This couple brings up all kinds of childhood nostalgia and now they’re set to say their vows to one another and be a young family. Congratulations to Culkin and Song! 

The engagement news comes via People, which spotted Brenda Song sporting an engagement ring on her left finger while out in Beverly Hills, California. The couple have been together for four years and are new parents to a son named Dakota. 

Macaulay Culkin, who is 41 and Brenda Song, who is 33, met on the set of the movie Changeland back in 2017. Since then, the pair have been pretty much inseparable. Back in 2018, Culkin said “this one's a good one, so I'm probably going to put some babies in her in a little bit” when talking about his relationship with Brenda Song as he shared the pair’s plans to move in together. 

The couple remain private on their social media, but when Macaulay Culkin turned 40, Brenda Song put out a little bit of PDA to share that she is “the luckiest person in the world” because she is loved by Culkin. Check out the sweet post: 

The clear common thread between the pair is how their careers began at young ages. Macaulay Culkin is still best known for his role in Home Alone, even though he has yet to reprise the role as an adult aside from a viral Google ad in 2018. The recent Disney+ remake was not warmly recieved, but the actor recently found an epic role in American Horror Story following a successful career as a child actor.  

Brenda Song got her start on Disney Channel, notably starring in The Suite Life of Zack and Cody along with other hit original DCOMs like Get A Clue, Stuck in the Suburbs and Wendy Wu: Homecoming Warrior. The actress spoke out about not being allowed to audition for Crazy Rich Asians in 2019 to some pushback from the director, Jon M. Chu. The actress is currently a star on Hulu’s Dollface alongside Kat Dennings, Shay Mitchell and Malin Ackerman. 

When speaking about their relationship in 2019, Song shared that she and Culkin bonded over their experiences as child actors, saying that “you just look each other in the eye and you nod and we know” to Entertainment Tonight. Back in April 2021, the couple welcomed their first child Dakota Song Culkin, who is named after Macaulay’s late sister, who was killed in a traffic accident back in 2008.
