‘We’re overjoyed’: Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song welcome first child… and name him after his late sister who died after tragic car accident
Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin is a dad.
The former child actor, now 40, and girlfriend Brenda Song are ‘overjoyed’ after welcoming their first child, a baby boy named Dakota, last week.
The healthy infant was born Monday, April 5 at 1:10pm, in Los Angeles, weighing 6 pounds, 14 ounces, according to Esquire.
The name is a touching tribute to Culkin’s late sister, who passed away after injuries sustained from stepping in front of a moving vehicle outside a west LA bar in 2008.

The accident did not result in a criminal investigation, as LAPD officers determined the motorist was not driving drunk, stopped to help, and had followed all laws.
At the time of the accident Culkin’s spokeswoman called Dakota’s death a ‘terrible tragic accident’ and said the family had no further comment.
Brenda and Macaulay, who met on the set of Changeland in 2017, did not announce they were expecting a child ahead of the birth announcement.
Before Dakota’s arrival the private pair were just parents to a brood of animals which include three cats, a few fish, a Shiba Inu, and a blue-headed pionus parrot.

The Richie Rich actor revealed that he and the Suite Life Of Zack And Cody stand-out were trying to start a family at the start of last year, joking to Esquire: ‘We practice a lot.’
‘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.”
The couple have an overwhelming love for one another, with Song telling the men’s magazine: ‘You can’t be around him and not be happy.’
‘People don’t realize how incredibly kind and loyal and sweet and smart he is.’
‘Truly what makes Mack so special is that he is so unapologetically Mack. He knows who he is, and he’s 100 percent okay with that. And that to me is an incredibly sexy quality. He’s worked really hard to be the person he is.’
