Well, it’s official now — Brenda Song and Macaulay Culkin are indeed engaged. After Song was spotted wearing a diamond ring on that finger last week, the “Dollface” actor casually confirmed the news in an interview with The Cut, referring to Culkin as her “fiancé.”

Song and Culkin first got together in 2017 after meeting on the set of their film “Changeland.” In April 2021, they announced the birth of their son, Dakota, whom they named after Culkin’s late sister. “I feel incredibly lucky,” Song told The Cut about balancing her acting career with motherhood. “It makes it easier when you love what you do and you know your child is in good hands.”

She added: “My fiancé and I are very hands-on. We don’t have a nanny, but my mom has been here with us since my son was born. He’s 9 months old now. When I was working, my mom would bring him to set so I could breastfeed and see him during the day. People tell you a lot about labor and pregnancy, but not about the fourth trimester. To my girlfriends that are pregnant I say, make sure you have help. Because your instinct is to want to do it all and you physically can’t.”

While discussing her home life, Song said she enjoys ending her day by getting in bed with Culkin and chatting about their days. “When I was working he’d wake up with me to chat,” she said. “Now we do it at night, after our son goes down. It calms me. It sounds small, but I cherish it. It’s nice to wind down with someone you love.” Read the rest of Song’s interview with The Cut here.
