The mother of all reunions! It's been 25 years since Catherine O'Hara and Macaulay Culkin first graced the screen together in the 1990 classic Home Alone, but they still share a special, fake-family bond like no other.

During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live to promote her new show, Schitt's Creek, on Tuesday, Feb. 10, the For Your Consideration actress, 60, recalled an adorable run-in she'd had with her former on-screen son, now 34, a couple of years ago. (O'Hara played mom Kate McCallister to Culkin's Kevin McCallister in both the original Home Alone and the first sequel, 1992's Home Alone 2: Lost in New York.)

"I haven't seen him for years and years, but I saw him two years ago — a year-and-a-half-ago? — at a Martin Mull art opening, and he was coming out, and he went, 'Mommy!'" And I said, 'Baby!'" she told WWHL host Andy Cohen, extending her arms out in front of her as if to hug someone.

The mini-reunion was so sweet that even O'Hara's husband, production designer Bo Welch, was aflutter with excitement.

"My husband, who's usually cool about these things, was like, 'Okay, both of you get together, I'm getting a picture!'" she shared. "And he got beautiful pictures on his phone, which I wish I had to show."

As for Culkin himself? "He was living in Paris at the time, and he looked lovely, and he was doing really well, and I was happy to see him," the Waiting for Guffman star enthused.
