Wedding bells are ringing for former child stars Macaulay Culkin and Brenda Song just a year after they announced the birth of their son, Dakota! The couple has been romantically linked since July 2017, and after over 4 years of dating, they've decided to say "I do."

For those who forgot, the two actors met while filming Changeland together, and first sparked dating rumors when they were spotted having dinner together in Los Angeles. The newly betrothed couple has kept their relationship hidden from the eyes of the media for the past few years. Although, shortly after the suspicion of their relationship began, Song confirmed the rumors by posting a photo in which she posed beside the Home Alone actor. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Song mentioned that she and Culkin formed a connection over their childhood stardom, both beginning their acting careers very early in life. "Child actors, we don't even get to talk about it, you just look each other in the eye, and you nod, and we know," Song revealed.

Fast forward nearly three years later: in April 2017, Brenda Song gave birth to their first child, a baby boy named Dakota. "We're overjoyed," the new father had shared. Macaulay Culkin has also previously discussed his intentions of continuing to build a family with Song. Together, the pair own three cats - Santa Claws, Apples, and Dude, a Shiba Inu named Panda, a parrot, and several fish. In an appearance on The Joe Rogan Experience podcast, he joked, "I have a pretty little family," adding that he and Song have "a good life."

The love between these two is undeniable. In August 2020, the 33-year-old Suite Life star posted a special photo of herself and her beau wearing matching flannel pajamas in honor of his birthday. "Happy 40th birthday to this magical being," Song wrote. "I could sit here and write endlessly about how wonderful, kind, loving, genuine, loyal, honest, brilliant, and hilarious you are, and how grateful I am that I get to share and do this life thing with you." Following the announcement of their engagement, Song was spotted in Beverly Hills, wearing her new diamond ring, and fans are waiting anxiously to find out what the next steps for the couple will be.
