Macaulay Culkin and Kieran Culkin’s Mother Struggling with Health Issues

Macaulay Culkin and Kieran Culkin’s Mother Struggling with Health Issues

Macaulay and Kieran Culkin’s mother Patricia Brentrup has been dealing with some serious health issues that have sidelined her. Brentrup has been quite prevalent in the lives of Macaulay and Kieran over the years.

Recently, she was invited to appear when Macaulay received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. These health issues, though, kept her from being present for her son.

“Patty was invited, and they wanted to fly her out, but she’s been having some hard times with her health,” Mart Cox, Brentrup’s husband for the past 12 years, told Page Six. “Kieran was looking after her and she was going to doctors in the city. All the kids have been very helpful, oh for sure. Just from Patty, they have a lot of love in them — she is an incredible woman.”

Kieran Culkin Offers High Praise for Mother

Kieran Culkin has offered plenty of praise for his mother, People reports. He’s been doing this while also piling up award after award for his work in Succession. Culkin, for example, brought Brentrup up when accepting a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. He thanked “my wonderful mom. Mom, thank you for doing everything you’ve done for us. You’re an amazing woman.”

Kieran wasn’t through putting his mom over with media members backstage at the Golden Globes. “I have no idea how my mom did it — she raised [us] in this basically studio apartment and I don’t know how she did it,” he said. Kieran added just how “amazing” Brentrup has been as a mother.

“Obviously [I] wouldn’t be here without her,” Kieran said of his decision to mention Brentrup, 69, in his speech. “Not just because of the sex she had with my father. For the woman she is. And for having sex with my father.”

The Culkin boys have four other siblings in their family. They are Shane, Quinn, Christian, and Rory. Sister Dakota died in 2008. Cox talked with Page Six about the closeness of the kids to their mom. “None ever gets more love than the other,” he said. “That’s how their mom raised them,” he said, “although Kieran always thought he was the favorite!”

Macaulay Culkin Has Two Children With Brenda Song

Macaulay Culkin is all grown up now. Sorry to burst your bubble, Home Alone fans. He’s in a relationship with Brenda Song and has two children with her. He’s not acting as much these days but makes occasional public appearances.

As for Kieran, he’s been married to Jazz Charton since 2013. Culkin has two children from his relationship with Charton. His first movie appearance was alongside Macaulay in Home Alone. Before getting involved in Succession, Kieran appeared in several independent films. That’s where he has been able to get his acting reps in recent years.

After Kieran won his Golden Globe Award, Song went on Instagram and offered her congratulations. She wrote, “Yay Kieran!!!!!!!”

Here’s hoping that the Culkins’ mother gets well soon. She appears to be very proud of her sons and their achievements.
