Actors Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin welcomed their first child together on April 5.

The couple’s son weighed 6 pounds, 14 ounces and was born in Los Angeles. They named him Dakota Song Culkin after Culkin’s sister Dakota, who died in 2008 at age 29.

The new parents said they were “overjoyed” by the birth of their son.

In 2018, Culkin said on the Joe Rogan Experience Podcast that he was looking forward to having kids someday.

“I’m gonna make some babies,” he said at the time. “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 also joked that their kids would be adorable.

“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,” he said.

The couple first met while filming the 2019 film Changeland. Culkin has since talked about how comfortable his life with Song is.

“I mean, look at me: I got money, I got fame, I got a beautiful girlfriend and a beautiful house and beautiful animals,” he told Esquire last year. “It took me a long time to get to that place, and I had to have that conversation with myself and go, like, Honestly, Mack? It’s not so bad. I want for nothing and need for even less. I’m good, man.”

Song has made similar comments about life with Culkin.

“People don’t realize how incredibly kind and loyal and sweet and smart he is,” she told Esquire. “Truly what makes Mack so special is that he is so unapologetically Mack.”

Culkin is best known for his role, Kevin McCallister, in the Home Alone movies while Song is a former Disney star, famous for her work as London Tipton on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. Culkin is currently filming season 10 of American Horror Story.
