There are so many reasons to adore Macaulay Culkin and his most recent life update has gotten the whole internet swooning (and feeling incredibly shocked)...

Kevin McCallister has just welcomed his little boy into the world!

And the internet is overcome with joy. And a little bit of confusion...

Now, we all know Macaulay Culkin.


He may well be the original child actor.

He's part of the Culkin brother dynasty.


Who have pretty much dominated the world of child acting.

Sure, in his later years he's been less of a megastar ...


He's certainly remained in the public consciousness.

Whether it's bizarre stunts like this:


Or his pizza-themed Velvet Underground cover band (look it up).

And the most iconic of all?

Our boy is a dad! Macaulay's rep confirmed the news to E! News and also shared the baby's name.

It was reported that the former child actors met on the set of Changeland in September 2017.

And in between filming, the 2 went out on double dates. The first time they were spotted together was at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California.

A source told Us Weekly that "they were spotted holding hands and being cute with each other."

Immediately, the rumors about their relationship were sparked online with many speculating whether it was just a friendly outing or an actual date-date.

But our suspicions were confirmed when just a few months later, the pair took a trip to the city of love, Paris, with Culkin's goddaughter.

While the couple tends to keep most of their relationship under wraps, they have opened up about their love for each other.

In August 2018, during an episode of the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, Culkin revealed that he wants to start a family with Song saying "I'm gonna make some babies."

He continued:

"This one's a good one, so I'm probably going to put some babies in her in a little bit. I mean, we've definitely been practicing."

And now, fast forward 2 years later, and practice clearly makes perfect as the couple has recently welcomed their first child together.

The announcement left us all giddy with excitement.

Congratulations to the pair on welcoming their son: Dakota Song Culkin, who was named in honor of the actor's late older sister, who tragically died after being hit by a car in 2008.
