A Look at Macaulay Culkin’s Siblings and Girlfriend

Macaulay Culkin has five living siblings. They are Shane, Kieran, Quinn, Christian, and Rory Culkin. His very much older paternal half-sister, Jennifer, died in 2000, and another sister named Dakota passed away in 2008. 

The American actor, who started his career as a child actor in the 80s and gained fame for playing Kevin McCallister in Home Alone, is in a long-term relationship with actress Brenda Song. They started dating in 2018 and have two children together.

Who Are Macaulay Culkin’s Siblings?

The Home Alone star was born to Christopher Culkin and Patricia Brentrup on August 26, 1980. Christopher Culkin was a former Broadway actor featuring in many theatre productions and his sister, Bonnie Bedelia, is a veteran award-winning actress which goes a long way in explaining how Macaulay got his acting talent.

Macaulay Culkin is the third child of the seven children born to his father. His two older siblings, Shane and Dakota, were born in 1976 and 1979 respectively. The award-winning actor has four younger siblings – Kieran, Quinn, Christian and Rory Culkin.

Sadly, Macaulay lost his sister, Dakota, to a car accident in 2008. His younger siblings Rory and Kieran Culkin are both established actors.

Rory has received critical acclaim for his roles in Lord of Chaos, Signs and Scream 4. Kieran, known for his roles in Igby Goes Down, is a recipient of the prestigious Critics’ Choice Movie Award as well as other awards.

Does Macaulay Culkin’s Have a Girlfriend?

As a famous child actor, Macaulay received a lot of advances from the female folk and in 1998, he decided to settle down by marrying his longtime sweetheart, Rachel Miner.

Miner was born in the same year as Culkin and was already on her way to becoming an established actress when the two tied the nuptial knot. However, lovebirds announced their separation in 2000 and by 2002, the divorce became official.

Many attributed the failure of the marriage to the fact that the duo were only kids when they got married and that they weren’t mature enough (at 18) to start a family.

Soon after Culkin’s divorce was finalized in 2002, he got hooked with Mila Kunis. The relationship lasted for about nine years but unfortunately didn’t lead to marriage.

According to reports making the rounds in the entertainment space, Macaulay found love again in Brenda Song. The couple got together in 2018 and the relationship has been budding since then.

Brenda Song is also in the entertainment industry as she started out as a fashion model at the tender age of 7 and went further to pursue a career in acting. Her acting career has remained on the rise following appearances in top-grossing films and television shows.

What Is Macaulay Culkin Doing Now?

Culkin’s leave of absence from Hollywood was intended for him to catch his breath and attend high school. He later announced his return in 2000 with his appearance in a play titled Madame Melville and in 2003 he was seen in the film Party Monster and was featured as a guest actor in Will & Grace that same year.

In a bid to try other forms of entertainment, the actor ventured into music as a rock singer. He founded Pizza Underground in 2013 and recruited instrumentalists to play in the band.

Culkin’s musical band toured for most of the next two years gaining a lot of recognition and traction along the way. However, Macaulay Culkin announced, on behalf of the group on July 10, 2016, that members of the New York City-based music group had mutually agreed to split up thereby disbanding the group.

A couple of years after the band split, Culkin went on to establish BunnyEars.com, an American pop culture site, in 2018. He has been actively managing his website since then as well as making appearances in a couple of other films like the 2019 film, Changeland which hit the cinemas on 7th June 2019.
