Home Alone‘s iconic child star, Macaulay Culkin a.k.a Kevin McCallister and his partner and actress Brenda Strong just became parents to their first child, a baby boy named Dakota Song Culkin on 5th April in Los Angeles.
Yes, given we had no idea Macaulay was in a relationship with Brenda, who is known for her role as London Tipton on ‘The Suite Life of Zack & Cody’, this sure came as a surprise to everyone. Also, made me feel super old right now.
According to The Times, Culkin’s publicists shared a statement that read, “Mother, Father and Baby are all healthy and happy. Says the new parents, ‘We are overjoyed'”. They named their baby, Dakota, after Macaulay’s late sister.
An article in the same magazine from February last year is when Culkin spoke about his girlfriend, Brenda, and how they are trying to have a baby. The piece also mentions that the both of them first met on the sets of the movie, “Changeland”, and the rest was history.
But given a majority of people were still unaware of this couple, Twitter was abuzz with surprise and excitement as nobody had a clue about these two actors being a couple, let alone new parents. One user wrote, “If you had told 10 year old me that london tipton and kevin mccalister would have a child together one day i would’ve been so shocked.”
Well, I can’t agree more, but this sure is some great news. Here’s congratulating the new parents!
