Brenda Song has given birth to a baby boy.
The 34-year-old actress and her fiancé Macaulay Culkin quietly welcomed a second son, called Carson, around Christmas, according to Us Weekly.
Brenda gave birth to their first child, a son called Dakota, in April 2021.
At the time, 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, 42, 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 their approach, she shared: ‘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,’ she said.
‘When I was working, my mom would bring [my son] to set so I could breastfeed and see him during the day.
‘People tell you a lot about labour and pregnancy, but not about the fourth trimester.
‘To my girlfriends that are pregnant I say, make sure you have help,’ she added.
‘Because your instinct is to want to do it all and you physically can’t.’
What’s more, Brenda stressed the importance of having good communication with Macaulay.

The actress – who started 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 with each other.
‘Being communicative when you need help is so important. Instead of having set duties, we just feel each other out.
‘I’ll be putting my son down and my partner is like, ‘Let me feed the animals and get dinner ready.’
Her last Instagram post was from November 2022 and she has not been seen in public for several months.
His last Instagram post was for January where he showed off his breakfast, which was a plate of Cheerios and a banana.

The couple reportedly got engaged in early 2022.
A source told People in late January 2022 that the lovebirds had gotten engaged, and Brenda seemingly confirmed the news shortly afterward when she was spotted out in public wearing a diamond ring on her left ring finger.
A source told Us Weekly in March 2022 that the new parents are already looking forward to further expanding their family.
‘They want more than one kid for sure. … It can definitely happen soon,’ they claimed, adding that it wouldn’t be a ‘surprise’ if the two conceived another child after Dakota’s first birthday.
‘Brenda couldn’t be happier,’ the source added. ‘Becoming a mom has changed her. She’s always putting her son first, especially when it comes to making career decisions. She is really focused on being a mom and giving him her full attention. She has a good support system around her, but she and Macaulay are really hands-on parents.’
The insider also said the couple were looking to ‘get married in the next year or two,’ though their first priority was raising Dakota.
‘They’re committed to each other and are fully in it for the long haul. They’re very in love with each other and have been from the beginning,’ they said.
Brenda has stayed busy in recent years with film and television roles, and is on Hulu’s Dollface and as a voice actor on the Disney Channel series Amphibia.
Macaulay’s actin work has been more sparse in recent years, though he did join his love when he made a guest appearance on 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.
