Kieran Culkin has confirmed that his brother Macaulay Culkin and his fiancee Brenda Song have welcomed their second child, but says they haven’t been able to visit due to distance and busy schedules.
The Succession actor, 40, spoke with access to hollywood at his show’s fourth season debut in New York City at Lincoln Center on Monday.
The actor is the father of his own young children with wife Jazz Charton, 34, daughter Kinsey Sioux, three, and son Wilder Wolf, one.
He said he and his family have yet to make the cross-country trek to visit Macaulay, 42, Song 34, and their children amid the ‘nightmare’ of hectic schedules and the difficulty of traveling with children.
“Well, the cousins live in Los Angeles, we live in New York,” said the actor, who plays Roman Roy in the critically acclaimed HBO series. “I have a one-year-old and a three-year-old and no matter how busy I am, there is no way to get on a plane and leave, and the same with them.”

Kieran chats with the media following a US Weekly reports that the Home Alone actor and Song welcomed their second child, Carson, late last year. They are also parents to their son Dakota, who turns two next month.
“I haven’t met No. 2 yet and they haven’t met (my) No. 2 either because we just haven’t been able to figure that out,” Kieran told Access Hollywood at the event.
He said of the difficulties of traveling with young children: “We have a one and a half year old, the first time we did it, she was about 19 months old, I think, a nightmare.”
“She’s three and a half now, she’s good on a plane now, but our son is about a year and a half, so we’re not going to be putting him on a plane any time soon. It’s just a nightmare.
After Macaulay and Song welcomed Dakota back in April 2021, they also made a concerted effort to keep the news under wraps until they felt ready to share it with the world.
In a brief statement, Brenda and Macaulay admitted to being “overjoyed” at the time.
Brenda also previously revealed that they are both ‘hands-on’ parents. The stars have been romantically linked for five years.
Speaking about her approach, she shared: ‘My fiancé and I are very hands-on.
Baby joy! Brenda Song has given birth to a baby boy. The 34-year-old actress and her fiancé Macaulay Culkin quietly welcomed a second child, named Carson, around Christmas, according to Us Weekly. Seen in 2018
They lean on each other: The actress said: ‘I think when you and your partner have children, especially the first few months, you don’t have the patience to be polite to each other’
“We don’t have a babysitter, but my mom has been here with us since my son was born,” she said. When she was working, my mom would bring (my son) to the set so she could nurse him and see him during the day.
“People talk a lot about labor and pregnancy, but not about the fourth trimester. To my friends who are pregnant I say, make sure you have help. Because your instinct is to want to do everything and physically you can’t.
Additionally, Brenda stressed the importance of having good communication with Macaulay.
The actress, who began dating the Hollywood star in 2018, said: “I think when you and your partner have kids, especially the first few months, you don’t have the patience to be polite.”
‘Being forthcoming when you need help is very important. Instead of having set duties, we just grope each other out.
“I’ll be putting my son down and my partner says, ‘Let me feed the animals and make dinner.’
Her last Instagram post was from November 2022 and she has not been seen in public for several months.

The couple reportedly got engaged in early 2022.

said a source us weekly in March 2022 that the new parents are already looking forward to further expanding their family.
They sure want more than one child. … It can definitely happen soon,” they stated, adding that it wouldn’t be a “surprise” if the two conceive another child after Dakota’s first birthday.
“Brenda couldn’t be happier,” the source added. ‘Becoming a mom has changed her. She always puts her child first, especially when it comes to making career decisions.
“She is really focused on being a mother and giving her all her attention. She has a good support system around her, but she and Macaulay are really hands-on parents.’
The source also said the couple were looking to “get married in the next year or two,” though their first priority was raising Dakota.
“They are committed to each other and they are fully committed to it for the long haul. They are very in love with each other and have been from the beginning,’ they said.
Brenda has kept herself busy in recent years with film and television roles, including on Hulu’s Dollface and as a voice actor on the Disney Channel series Amphibia.
Macaulay’s acting work has been more sparing in recent years, though he bonded over his love when he made a guest appearance in Dollface.
Most recently, he made a surprise guest appearance on HBO’s acclaimed comedy series The Righteous Gemstones as a long-lost relative of one of the main characters.
