Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin Had a Baby and We’re Freaking Out

Congrats to the new parents. But how old are we now?

20th Century Studios

London Tipton and Kevin McAllister just had a baby. Or more accurately, Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin just welcomed their first child together, a boy named Dakota. While we’re totally thrilled for the couple, who’ve been together since 2017, our minds are officially blown. Here’s why:

— It’s likely that few people even know that Culkin and Song were a couple. They met in 2017 when they worked together on the indie comedy, Changeland. She dated Trace Cyrus for several years, from 2010-2017, while he was married to Rachel Miner (1998-2002) and dated Mila Kunis from 2002-2010. Culkin guest-starred in a 2019 episode of Song’s Hulu show, Dollface

— Song and Culkin – especially Culkin – were child stars. So, now, two famous child stars just had a child.

— Culkin and Song feel as if they’re from two different generations, right? Home Alone came out in 1990 and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody started in 2005. In reality, though, Culkin is just seven years older than Song. He’s 40 and she’s 33.

— Who feels more ancient hearing the news… kids who grew up watching Home Alone and Home Alone 2 or kids who grew up watching The Suite Life of Zack and Cody and The Suite Life on Deck? Or the parents of those kids?! It’s pretty equal, with parents everywhere going crazy on their social media platform of choice, Facebook, and kids flocking to Tik Tok and Instagram to share their bewilderment.

Anyway, according to Esquire, Song gave birth to Dakota Song Culkin, on Monday, April 5, at 1:10 p.m. in Los Angeles. Dakota weighed at 6 lbs., 14 oz., and he’s named after Culkin’s sister, Dakota, who died in 2008 when she was accidentally hit by a car in Los Angeles. “Mother, Father and Baby are all healthy and happy,” read a statement from Culkin’s publicist that was provided to The Los Angeles Times. “Says the new parents, ‘We are overjoyed.’”

All we can say is congrats to the happy new parents!
