Macaulay Culkin And Brenda Song Just Had A Baby - And Fans Are Shook

Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song just announced they welcomed a baby boy last week, naming him Dakota after Macaulay's late sister.

But the big news for many was the fact that the couple are even together, with many taking to social media to say they had no idea the Home Alone star was dating former Disney star Brenda.

You might remember Brenda from her child stardom (much like Macaulay). She played London Tipton in The Suite Life Of Zac And Cody and later found fame in a string of more serious gigs, like Station 19 and Oscar-winning The Social Network.

Taking to Twitter after hearing the news of the pair's new arrival, one person wrote: "Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song, have a baby? Did I black out? Did I come back from being snapped or some?(sic)"

While another wrote: "So no one was going to tell me that Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song were a couple?"

A third shared a meme of both actors as child stars, including that iconic picture of a young Macaulay screaming after putting on aftershave, and wrote: "The emotional journey you go on when you find out that Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin had a baby..."

"Where were you when you learned Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song were a couple?", a fourth asked.

As another joked: "If you had told 10 year old me that London Tipton and Kevin McCallister would have a child together one day i would've been so shocked".

According to Esquire, the former child actor, now 40, and Brenda, 33, are 'overjoyed' at becoming parents. Little Dakota Song Culkin was born on Monday, April 5th in LA, weighing 6 pounds, 14 ounces.

The name Dakota is a tribute to the AHS star's late sister, who sadly died in 2008, shortly after stepping in front of a moving vehicle.

Brenda and Macaulay met on the set of 2017 movie, Changeland. The couple kept their pregnancy news a secret until Dakota's birth, but were already proud parents to three cats, ablue-headed pionus parrot, some fish, and Shiba Inu dog.

Speaking about their relationship in the past, Brenda told Esquire: "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."

She went on: "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".
