As of now, the actor is leading a small family. His wife records all the moments of their family life on her Instagram.

Parents & Family

Kieran comes from a family of performance artists. He is the son of Christopher “Kit” Culkin, a failed professional actor, and mother Patricia Brentrup. He grew up in and around acting scenes, auditions, and fame. 

Kieran was one of the seven children of Kit and Patricia. His siblings are Shane (born - 1976), Dakota (born - 1979), Macaulay (born - 1980), Quinn (born - 1984), Christian (born - 1987), and Rory (born - 1989). Kieran, unfortunately, lost his sister, Dakota, to a car accident in west Los Angeles in 2008.

The actor’s parents never actually married, but Patricia started the procedures for separating from Kit in 1995 after being with Kit for 21 years. She cited the reasons for demanding the split to be "excessive drinking, physical abuse, and unfaithful behavior." 

Before and after his parents’ split, Kieran experienced both abject poverty and huge wealth during his childhood. He also saw first-hand what wealth could do to a person like his brother, Macaulay.

So, Kieran chose not to get into the life Macaulay had and found the balance between his career and personal life. He told the following in regards to the damage that fame could do in an interview with The Daily Beast in 2014:

I think if anybody saw real fame first or secondhand, they would not want to pursue it at all. It is not attractive... I don't do this for fame, I do this to be good.

Now, the siblings live separately, as do their parents. His father married a woman named Jeanette Krylowski in 1995 and lives a secluded life with her.
