Fans Are Proud Of How Far New Dad Macaulay Culkin Has Come

There are some celebrities you just feel personally attached to. When it comes to Macaulay Culkin, we've pretty much grown up with him, watching him go from the adorable Kevin McCallister in Home Alone to the 40-year-old new father he is now (yes, he is somehow 40, if that makes you feel old, join the club!), which makes seeing him thriving and happy now feel like celebrating our own friend!

Macaulay has not had a life without struggles.

"I played with some fire, I guess is the best way to put it. At the same time, I’ve never been to rehab or anything like that. I’ve never had to clean out that way. There were certain times when I had to catch myself, once or twice," Macaulay told Esquire last year.

However, Macaulay recently announced the birth of his first child with his longtime girlfriend Brenda Song!

"We're overjoyed," the couple said of welcoming their first son, named Dakota Song Culkin after Macaulay's sister who tragically passed away in 2008.

Fans couldn't help but notice that Macaulay seems to be happy and thriving in life right now!

Fans shared their happiness on social media.

"Seeing how healthy and happy Macaulay Culkin looks now warms my ENTIRE heart," one tweet read.

"I'm just really happy for Macaulay Culkin! He was one of the most recognisable faces of my childhood and my heart always broke whenever I saw him during his bad phase. I'm so happy he is leading a good life now," one fan shared.

Congratulations to Macaulay and Brenda!

If we thought Macaulay was looking happy before, we can't wait to see him in full dad-mode (once the sleepless nights pass, of course)!
