- Actor Macaulay Culkin and his lover Brenda Song are officially parents
- The couple welcomed their first child on 5 April and are currently back home in Los Angeles
- News of the baby came as a surprise as the couple kept the pregnancy a secret right up until the baby was born
Home Alone actor Macaulay Culkin and former Disney Channel superstar Brenda Song are officially parents as the two welcomed a bouncing baby boy.
The good news was shared by Culkin's management, who broke the news to E! News. This comes as a surprise as the couple kept the pregnancy news private until the baby was born.
''The new parents and their baby boy are said to be healthy and happy and are overjoyed,'' read a press statement.
The baby is reported to have been born on 5 April and the first-time mom and dad are both doing okay in their home in Los Angeles. Culkin named his son Dakota Song Culkin in honour of his late big sister.
Song and Culkin sparked love interest rumours back in 2017 and since then, kept their love life very private and stayed away from the spotlight. However, they have made appearances on each other's social media.
The actor had mentioned in 2018 while appearing on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast interview that he was planning on starting a family soon.
"This one is a good one, so I am probably going to put some babies in her in a little bit. I mean, we have definitely been practising."
We can only wait to see if the baby will also follow in the parents' footsteps in the acting sector.
