Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher getting together was the best thing that ever happened to That ’70s Show fans. When they first met, Ashton was with Demi Moore, and he actually was Mila’s first kiss. Meeting years later when he was divorced from Moore changed everything for the two of them. “I felt like I got punched in the gut, literally overnight,” she said on a podcast. “He said something, and I was like … ‘Oh, my God. I love this man, and I have to walk away because this is not the agreement that we had. And so I’m going to speak up.’”
The two got married in 2015, and just a year later, they started to have children. Kunis has stated over the years that motherhood did not come easily for her, and that makes her one of the more relatable stars out there. “He’s one of the most brilliant human beings I’ve met in my entire life,” she’s also stated of the hubs. Kunis has always looked adorable when pregnant, right up until the ninth month. Check out these 20 pics of Mila Kunis pregnant.
20. LOOKING GOOD IN STRIPES
One thing about Mila Kunis is that she loved being casual while pregnant. Who can blame her? Pregnancy changes our bodies in ways that make us uncomfortable, and trying to make ourselves comfortable is a priority to get through those nine months. “I don’t read anything about myself. I genuinely don’t know what’s written about me … other than I know that I’m pregnant about once a year and my husband [Ashton Kutcher] and I are getting a divorce once a year,” she told Cosmopolitan. “I know this because I go down the grocery store aisle, and I see it on the cover of magazines and I’m like, ‘Oh boy, OK!’”
19. MILA TAKING A STROLL WITH A SMALL BABY BUMP
How cute does she look in this long summer dress? She just has a small baby bump, and she’s never looked more adorable. The paparazzi put her through a lot of heartaches when she was pregnant, but it’s just one of many stories that celebrities have to go through. “At one point when I was pregnant, [the tabloids] said that I had an emergency and was rushed to the hospital, and my face was on the cover,” Kunis said to Cosmopolitan. “The amount of stress that caused my family, nobody will understand.” That’s a hard experience for anyone to go through.
18. MILA SETTING THINGS STRAIGHT WITH ASHTON
We would love to know the conversation that these two are having to make Mila look the way that she does. It’s actually a pretty funny picture, and it’s relatable in the sense that all married couples have this sort of look. Mila has said that she regrets all the time she missed being with Ashton since they got together many years later. “The people that we were back then would never be together. But it’s just such a bummer that we missed out on 20 years together. I look back, and I think, ‘We could have spent 20 years together.’” The feels!
17. SHE FEELS VERY LUCKY TO HAVE HER CHILDREN BOND
It doesn’t look like Mila has to worry about any sibling rivalry with her kids, not yet anyway. She has two children, a boy and a girl, and she says that the kids have a really strong bond. “She loves it. She loves her brother,” Mila gushed to E! News exclusively. “She wants him to sleep in her room and doesn’t get jealous or envious. She’s great. We got very lucky.” The two children have only grown closer as they got older, and it probably has a lot to do with the fact that she is such a down-to-earth mom.
16. SHE’S FINISHED HAVING CHILDREN
Mila has stated that the two children that she has with Ashton are more than enough for them. She sees no reason to have any more children. She told Entertainment Tonight, “We’re good on two right now. We’re solid. It’s perfect … I have two really healthy, really wonderful kids. Why test my luck?” Two is a great number to have, and they got one of each, so maybe she is right about testing her luck. Not everyone is meant to have a big family, and these two are pretty busy all on their own.
15. HER BEST RED CARPET LOOK
This dress is so adorable, and it’s showcasing her little baby bump. It’s definitely one of her best red carpet looks when she was pregnant. Her family is her priority now, and nothing comes before that. “I’d rather be in love and have a baby than have a movie.” She wants to raise her own children in a normal household just the way that both she and Ashton were raised. “I grew up incredibly poor and went to school and had a very average upbringing.” They have been doing a pretty great job of it so far, and they have every reason to be proud of their little family.
14. SHE BELIEVES THAT SHE HAS THE PERFECT FAMILY
She’s already stated that having two children creates the perfect family for them and she doesn’t want to change what they already have. The great thing about being a successful actress with a successful husband is that she can choose to be at home with her family as much as she wants to. “I am in the position where I don’t have to work for the sake of working, so I’m very lucky, in a sense. So, I can always sit back and wait for a project that I respond to, that I want to do.”
13. HER DATE NIGHTS WITH ASHTON HAVE CHANGED
Date nights certainly have changed with Ashton and Mila, and it’s not wild nights for them anymore. “My girlfriends and I went out to dinner a month ago, and I got home at 10:30 from dinner and I had three penicillins which is a delicious, delicious beverage,” Mila shared with us. “[I was] hammered. Three drinks, I am now a very cheap date.” There is no longer and clubbing for her and hubby. “No, because in the morning we still have kids,” she joked. “Your date night can’t be that wild because at 7 in the morning, you still have, ‘Mama’ and you’re like, ‘What? I’m up.'”
12. THERE ARE SO MANY DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HER CHILDREN
When Mila had her second child, she realized just how many differences there were between her children. “Baby one to two is different,” she explained. “Baby one, I would’ve been like, “OMG, OMG, what am I gonna do?” Baby two I’m like, “I got my pump bag, I got my clock going, I gotta be picking up from school in, like, three hours. I gotta go.” You’re a little bit more on a time schedule. The first one I was weeping. This one, I’m like, “It’s fine. Everyone’s alive, it’s all good.’”
11. HER CHILDREN ARE SO MUCH MORE ADVANCED
Ashton and Mila believe that they have some pretty smart children, and that’s something that most parents assume. During an interview, Ashton discussed how advanced his children are, especially his daughter. “It’s weird because girls advance apparently faster than boys,” Kutcher explained, according to People. “I didn’t know this but researched early childhood advancement. My daughter is 2½ [and] she speaks three languages; she’s got [the languages are spoken in Russia, Spain, and the U.S.]. She actually understands and speaks to them.” It’s amazing to think that their children can speak so many different languages so early on, and the language of Russia is not an easy one.
10. MILA AND ASHTON THINK GIRLS ARE SMARTER THAN BOYS
Mila took a hit in the media when she started comparing her son to her daughter and she said some interesting things that didn’t go over very well. “They’re incredibly different,” Kunis told Ellen DeGeneres, according to Us Weekly. “My boy’s like a sloth. He’s wonderful, and I love him — ’cause one day he’ll probably watch this and be like, ‘Why did you say that?’ — but the truth is, women are smarter than men. And I have this evident from my two different humans that I created.” It’s a funny thing to say about your kid, which was why she got a lot of flak for it.
9. MILA HAS AN INTERESTING TAKE ON BOYS
She has stated that her son just isn’t as quick as her daughter is, and we have to wonder if that’s the best way to go about comparing your two children. Many people thought that she might be putting a stereotype on her son that didn’t need to be there. “Girls are just on it, and boys are like, ‘Dum da-dum da-dum da-dum,’” Kunis added, according to People. “They’re more like little linebackers going through life, and like … Neanderthal-ish.” Many fans took to Twitter to say that it was saddening that she was calling her son a Sloth.
8. MILA HAS A BOHEMIAN PREGNANCY STYLE
We just love the casual style that she sported during her pregnancy. She has a bright smile on her face, and she couldn’t look happier than she is right here. She had a bohemian vibe going on with this outfit, and we love it. She’s not having any more children, but her father always gets excited when he sees that the tabloids are claiming that she is pregnant again. “My dad is always very hopeful that the pregnancies are true,” she dished. “He’s always like, ‘Is there really another?’” That’s kind of cute, but it’s never easy when family members have to see the things printed on magazine covers.
7. SHE KNOWS HOW TO WORK HER KIDS’ DAILY SCHEDULE
She has said in interviews that she has found motherhood exhausting, and we can all relate to that. Now that she has two children, she has managed to get a schedule in place that allows her to have control over her life as well as to add some fun into it. “My ideal day consists of waking up around 7 a.m. because that for me is sleeping in, doing a giant kid pile in my bed with my husband… Putting on some cartoons, getting an extra 30 minutes of sleep, rolling out of bed, doing breakfast while staying in our pajamas and then maybe going to the zoo or the aquarium or park.”
6. SHE PUMPS WHEREVER SHE WANTS TO
Mila Kunis is not the type of mom that worries about breastfeeding. She likes to pump ahead of time so that she has available access to milk. She stated in an interview that she doesn’t worry about where she should pump. If she needs to do it, she just does it, and people have to deal with it. “I mean, people are like, “Do you need a private room to pump?” and I was like, “Nope, no, I’ll do it right there.” I don’t care. Like, literally, I just don’t. It’s so different.” That’s what motherhood is all about, your priorities start to change.
5. MILA KNOWS SHE’S WITH HER SOUL MATE
She had seen Ashton at a party and didn’t realize it was him at first. She was checking him out from behind, and when he turned around, she couldn’t believe it was him. “I see this guy, and I see his back and he’s really tall,” Kunis says of seeing Kutcher, who had just split from Demi Moore. “Then he just turns around, and it was literally like if we were in a movie, the music would start playing and the violins would go. I think for the first time ever he took my breath away – I was like… he’s good-looking.”
4. SHE’S TAKING ON FEWER PROJECTS NOW
Mila Kunis loves the fact that she can take on the projects that she is passionate about. She doesn’t work for the sake of working anymore. She wants to be with her children and have a normal life. She doesn’t take a project unless it’s something she really wants because otherwise, it’s not worth leaving her family. She told interviewers that Ashton once took an Uber to a premiere after he put the baby to sleep because they live a very normal life. That’s a little surprising for two celebrities with millions of dollars at their disposal.
3. SHE IS A STRICT MOM
Ashton and Mila don’t want to raise spoiled children or children who feel that they are entitled to everything. She has stated that they have no reason to spoil their children and she doesn’t want to raise them to be troubled children. “Yeah, we’re not gonna raise jerks (sic). There are enough jerks (sic) in this world!” Kunis said. “We don’t need to contribute. But, you know, there are some nice people.” They are about as down to earth as it comes, and apparently, Ashton even does all the handyman chores around his house. They don’t hire people to do these things for them.
2. MILA DOESN’T BELIEVE IN CHRISTMAS GIFTS FOR KIDS
Mila is so determined to not raise spoiled children that she canceled Christmas for her children, at least while they were young. “We’re instituting [no presents] this year because when the kids are [younger than] 1, it doesn’t really matter,” Kunis says. “Last year when we celebrated Christmas, Wyatt was 2, and it was too much. We didn’t give her anything — it was the grandparents. The kid no longer appreciates the one gift. They don’t even know what they’re expecting; they’re just expecting stuff.” Not too many parents would agree to this sort of thing, but they feel it’s what’s right for their children.
1. MILA LOVES FAMILY TRADITIONS
She may not want her children receiving Christmas gifts, but she does love family traditions. “We literally bought a Christmas tree,” Kunis continues. “So as far as tradition goes, my family’s big on any excuse to get the family together and (have drinks). Whether it’s Easter, which we’ve now all accepted into our Jewish household or Christmas, it doesn’t matter. It’s all family time, but having kids, we’re building up our own little versions of tradition.” It sounds like her life in Russia wasn’t the same, and she’s been able to embrace the traditions in the United States with her family.
