Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song on parenting

Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song have always been very private about their personal lives. However, in April 2018, Culkin spilled some beans about Planned Parenthood on an episode of The Joe Rogan Experience. “I’ll make some babies,” he said. “This one is good, so I’ll probably put some kids in it for a bit. I mean, we’ve definitely been practicing.”

In March 2022, shortly after Dakota was born, a source close to the lovebirds told US Magazine that they definitely wanted more than one baby and that it could happen “any time soon.”

The source added that Song was “really focused on being a mother and giving him her undivided attention. She has a good support system around her, but she and Macaulay are really hands-on dads.”
