ACTOR Macaulay Culkin is one of eight children – but two of his siblings have tragically passed away at a young age.
The Home Alone star, now 40, became a father for the first time when longtime girlfriend Brenda Song gave birth in April of 2021.
What happened to Macaulay Culkin’s sister Dakota?
Dakota Culkin was killed in a car accident in 2008.
She was just 29.
“We can officially confirm that the victim is Dakota Culkin,” the family told TMZ at the time.
“This is a terrible tragic accident. We have no further comment at this time.”

Macaulay’s siblings include Succession star Kieran, Rory, Quinn, Shane, and Christian.

“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.’”
