Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song are engaged after dating for four years

Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin have decided to marry after dating for about four years. Song is best known for her role as London Tipton on Disney’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody, while Culkin famously starred as Kevin McCallister in the first two Home Alone movies. 

People reported that on Jan. 24, Song was spotted wearing a large diamond ring on her left hand while running errands in Beverly Hills, California. 

The actors met in Thailand while working on the movie Changeland. They were first romantically linked in 2017 after being seen on a dinner date at Craig’s, an Italian restaurant in Los Angeles.

The Home Alone actor previously married Rachel Miner in 1998 when they were both 18 years old. After his divorce in 2002, Culkin was in a relationship with Mila Kunis for about nine years. 

Song has never been married before, but she was engaged to Trace Cyrus, Miley Cyrus’ brother. The former couple dated on and off from 2010 to 2017.

Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song welcomed their first child 9 months before getting engaged

Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin’s engagement news comes nine months after the couple welcomed their first child, a son born in LA on Apr. 5, 2021. They named their baby Dakota Song Johnson after Culkin’s late sister, who died after being hit by a car in 2008. 

The American Horror Story: Double Feature star shared with Esquire in 2020 that he and song were trying to have a baby. 

“We practice a lot,” Culkin told the publication. “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.’”

On Nov. 8, 2021, Song posted an Instagram photo of herself and Culkin posing with the LA Rams mascot. She captioned the image, “Very few things can get us out of the house and away from our son.”
