Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin paid tribute to his sister with his baby's name.
Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song have welcomed their first child together, a son named Dakota born last week.
The couple told Esquire that they are 'overjoyed', and the publication reports that the baby boy was born in Los Angeles on April 5 at 1.10pm, weighing in at 6lbs 14ozs.
The Home Alone star, 40, named his son after his late sister Dakota Culkin, who tragically died after being hit by a car in 2008.
Macaulay and Brenda have been together since they met on the set of Changeland in 2017, and they hadn't gone public with the pregnancy.
Previously speaking to Esquire, Macaulay joked about becoming a dad, saying: "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.'
And speaking about Macaulay, Brenda also told the magazine: "You can’t be around him and not be happy. People don’t realise how incredibly kind and loyal and sweet and smart he is."
