Macaulay Culkin and partner Brenda Song have welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Dakota, after the Home Alone actor's late sister.

Dakota Culkin died at age 29 after being accidentally struck by a car on 9 December 2008, in Los Angeles. The oldest Culkin sibling, Dakota led a relatively private life, working behind the scenes in film.

At the time, Macaulay’s representatives told TMZ:

“We can officially confirm that the victim is Dakota Culkin. This is a terrible tragic accident. We have no further comment at this time.”

“We're overjoyed,” Culkin and Song told Esquire in a short statement.

The couple met in Thailand a few years ago while filming Changeland, a comedy-drama written and directed by Seth Green.

Speaking to Esquire about Culkin last year, Song said, “You can’t be around him and not be happy.”

Culkin, 40, also spoke to Esquire about wanting to start a family with Song, 33.

“We’re figuring it out, making the timing work,” he said. “Because nothing turns you on more than when your lady comes into the room and says, ‘Honey, I’m ovulating.’”

“People don’t realize how incredibly kind and loyal and sweet and smart he is,” Song told Esquire about Culkin, who shot to fame in the Eighties and Nineties in movies like Home Alone, Home Alone 2, and My Girl.

“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.”
