Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are expecting their second child
The 38-year-old actor is expecting his second child with wife, Mila Kunis just less than two years after welcoming their first
Congratulations are in order for Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis!
A source close to the adorable couple has exclusively confirmed to PEOPLE that they are expecting their second child.
Their first daughter, Wyatt Isabelle is now 20 months old.
“Ashton genuinely lights up when talking about Wyatt and the little one on the way,” a source revealed to PEOPLE. “Everything about being a father is natural to him.”
The low-key couple tied the knot in a private ceremony in June of 2015.
Late in 2015, Mila said in an interview that she was excited to expand their family and, less than a year later, she got her wish!
It may seem daunting for most parents to welcome a newborn when your other child is barely a toddler but, Mila seems ready for anything.
She previously told Entertainment Tonight that she has mastered the “balancing act” of being “a great partner, a great wife and a great woman.”
“I know that when we decided to have a kid, we were ready to no longer be selfish — at least start the process,” she said. “Because innately, as humans, we’re very selfish people, and we really wanted to have a family.”
“Having a little human to raise is a balancing act,” she added. “It’s definitely a learning process.”

Ashton began his fatherhood journey motivated by a simple goal.
“That first year, you spend just trying to keep them alive,” the funny dad quipped on Ellen. “And then after that, you actually hit a point where your job is to keep them from killing themselves.”
“She tries to kill herself on a regular basis,” he added. “You’d think that they would come with instincts around fire and large falls, and they don’t!”
He shared that the best part about being a dad is seeing ‘Mila Kunis come into her own as a mum’.
“The most amazing thing about having a baby is my partner, Mila,” marvelled Ashton. “She’s the greatest mum — I can’t even. I go to work every day, and I come home and she’s like perfect. And it just seems like everything went amazing, and I know that something probably didn’t go amazing, but she never complains. It’s unbelievable. She’s incredible.”
Hands-on parenting and a deeper kind of love
Though they are both busy Hollywood stars, they manage to care for their baby without the help of nanny.
“Just the two of us,” shared Ashton. “It’s awesome. We just want to know our kid. We want to be the people that know what to do when the baby’s crying to make the baby not cry anymore. We want to know, like, when she makes a little face or something, we want to be emotionally in touch with her. I think the only way to do that is by being the one who’s there.”
Becoming parents broadened their understanding of what love means.
“You think you know how much you can love another person, and then you have a child and then you know,” he marvelled. “It’s like infinitely rewarding.”
As for mum Mila, having Wyatt taught her how parenthood just takes you to a different level of love: “If she murdered somebody in cold blood, I would love her. I would be like, that’s okay,” she joked, describing Ashton as “an amazing dad”.
Acknowledging that she couldn’t have done any of it by herself. “He is 100 percent present.”
We wish them well on this new chapter of parenthood!
