Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song Are Engaged—and Parents of Two
Take a look at the sweet family and listen to one of their new baby's first cries.
Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song are engaged—and the parents of two!
Just more than a year after the couple revealed that were engaged, the happy news broke on March 17, 2023, that the Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song had welcomed a new baby boy before Christmas last year.
Us Weekly exclusively confirmed the news. And now that we know they've welcomed baby No. 2, their late-night Instagram post from Nov. 22 is a lot more relevant.
In the post, the couple awakens to the sound of a baby crying and plays a game of "Rock, Paper, Scissors... LIGHTSABER!" to determine who's turn it is to get up and care for the crying infant. After a bit of back and forth, Song delivers a personalized version of the classic line from Star Wars, "But Mac, you are the father." He replies, "Noooo." Song then declares "baby's stopped crying" and the couple abruptly turns off the light and goes back to sleep.
Knowing what we now know, this post is probably just as much a reveal of the new baby as it is an ad for holiday shopping. Watch the cute video and you tell us!

The couple announced their engagement on Jan. 26, 2022, by posting a photo of Song, now 34, rocking a major rock on her all-important ring finger.
The couple sometime met in 2017 while filming the 2019 comedy Changeland with mutual pal Seth Green in Thailand. Rumors of their romance first surfaced in July 2017 when Song and Culkin, 42, were spotted dining out together.
In April 2021, Culkin and Song welcomed their first child, a son named Dakota, saying in a statement simply, "We're overjoyed."
They celebrated their son's first birthday in April at Sesame Place San Diego with Culkin saying in an Instagram post that the amazing staff "made a little boy’s dreams come true. And my son also had a great time."

Are Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin still together?
Song and Culkin are still together and happier than ever! In January 2022, it was revealed that they're engaged, though no official wedding plans or dates have been announced publicly. Culkin previously gushed about Song in August 2018 on The Joe Rogan Experience.
"This one's a good one, so I'm probably going to put some babies in her in a little bit. I mean, we've definitely been practicing," he joked. "I'm going to have some pretty babies. She's Asian, so I'm gonna have tiny little Asian babies. It's going to be adorable—a bunch of Sean Lennons running around the house, that's what I'm looking for." Even before kids came into the picture, though, Culkin also said they had a "good life," adding, "I have a pretty little family—a pretty girl, a pretty dog, a pretty cat, and all that stuff. We're gonna move. We're doing the house thing and all that kind of stuff."
Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song's Amazon Deal Details
Brenda Song is learning what anyone who's planned a wedding knows: It's expensive and it takes a lot of time. As part of her wedding planning, Song teamed up with Amazon Handmade to launch a line of personalized products in 2022.
The former Disney Channel star says she likes the convenience of being able to shop or create anywhere at any time of day.
"I don't feel like I'm having to constantly make an appointment to talk to someone or run to the store," she told PEOPLE. "And it's really hard to do that, not only for new moms out there but for working moms or working dads or those going to school. I can do that at 11 o'clock at night, I can do it first thing in the morning, I can do it during nap time."

Are Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin married?
Culkin and Song aren't married yet, but they're on the way there! After announcing their engagement in January 2022, they've made no additional comments on wedding plans or dates.
Does Macaulay Culkin have children?
Why yes he does! Culkin and Song share two children. Their older son named Dakota is named in honor of Culkin's late sister of the same name. Culkin's sister Dakota, affectionately nicknamed "Cody" by her siblings, died after being struck by a car in December 2008.
In March 2023, the Culkin and Song revealed that they welcomed a second son, Carson, sometime in late 2022. As with their first child, the couple didn't announce his arrival until several months after his birth.
Did Macaulay Culkin divorce his parents?
Culkin didn't "divorce" his parents—he simply got his financial affairs in order after his parents announced they were divorcing each other in the 1990s and custodial arrangements were being made for Macaulay and his siblings.
"We didn't want to go with my father. It's always misconstrued, that I 'emancipated' myself from my parents," he told Esquire in 2020. "I legally took my parents' names off of my trust fund and found an executor, someone who would look over my finances, just in case anyone wanted to stick their f***ing pinkie in the pie. But the next thing you know, the story was that I divorced my parents. I just thought I was doing it cleanly—taking my father's name off, taking my mom's name off, so my opinion is unbiased. And when I did that, the whole thing kinda ended a lot faster."

Is Macaulay Culkin still married?
In 1998, when Culkin was just 17 years old, he married fellow 17-year-old actor Rachel Miner. The pair separated in 2000 and divorced in 2002. In a statement to ABC News, a rep for Culkin said that the divorce was amicable and they were still "the best of friends."

Granddaughter of actress Frances Fuller and Worthington Miner, a producer, screenwriter, actor, and director, Miner got her breakout role in 1990 in Woody Allen's film Alice; she began her five-year tenure as Michelle Bauer on the soap Guiding Light the same year.

Brenda Song's most high-profile relationship prior to her romance with Culkin was with Trace Cyrus—half-brother to Miley and most famous for being in the band Metro Station. They had an on-again-off-again relationship from 2010 to 2017. They were briefly engaged, with a particularly rough split after Cyrus accused Song of lying about having a miscarriage. When they ultimately ended their relationship for good in 2017, they were amicable, with Cyrus penning a song called "Brenda" about the experience.
"I wrote this song last year in Nashville after Brenda and I broke up," he wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post from 2018 (via Teen Vogue). "Her and I have both moved on and I'm extremely happy for her. She inspired me to write countless songs and was such an important part of my life. I will always cherish songs I have like this one to remind me of our crazy seven years together. When I wrote this song it was my final goodbye as we ended our relationship. I told myself after I wrote this song it would be my last song about Brenda and I've kept my word. Music like this is my therapy. Enjoy."

I'm waiting to have something else happen." She added, "We're incredibly private, and I think we relish the privacy we do actually have and are able to sustain it. We enjoy each other's company. We like to read books or play video games or watch TV or go to the movies. And he's an amazing cook. He makes dinner every night."
Almost immediately after Culkin and Kunis announced their split at the end of 2011, she was publicly linked to That '70s Show co-star and now-husband Ashton Kutcher. The details of Kunis and Culkin's breakup aren't known, but she admitted on a 2018 episode of pal Dax Shepard's Armchair Expert podcast, "I was an a-- in my 20s and I'll be the first to admit it.
