For a show to remain on the air for years, loyal viewers have to care about the series’ main characters. On top of that, in some cases, fans also become invested in the actors that bring those characters to life. In fact, sometimes when two actors do a great job portraying characters that fall in love, some viewers find themselves hoping that the performers will similarly wind up together.
Unfortunately for anyone who wants their favorite co-stars to fall in love, most of the time that doesn’t happen. Worse yet, there are several examples of co-stars who shared loads of on-screen chemistry only to greatly dislike each other behind-the-scenes. On the other hand, years after Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher played an on-screen couple, they became a couple, got married, and had kids.
Given the fact that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are both very busy people, some people may assume that just like a lot of celebrities, they let nannies raise their children. Once you look into the nature of Kutcher and Kunis’ relationship with their kids, however, it seems like that isn’t the case at all.
When you look back on Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s relationship timeline, they truly have a fascinating history. Co-stars for many years, back when Kunis and Kutcher worked together they were involved with other people. For example, in 2002 Mila Kunis met and fell for one of the most beloved child actors of all-time, Macaulay Culkin. Together for many, many years, for a long time, there was a great deal of conjecture that Kunis and Culkin would walk down the aisle. Instead, they broke up in 2011.
When it comes to Ashton Kutcher, he has been linked to many women over the years. Most notably, Kutcher got married to Demi Moore in 2005 only to divorce her just over six years later. In addition to that much talked about relationship, Kutcher dated many other stars including Lindsay Lohan, January Jones, Brittany Murphy, and Nelly Furtado. Finally, there have been rumors about Kutcher dating Rihanna, Amy Smart, Selma Blair, Cameron Diaz, Penelope Cruz, Jessica Simpson, and Tara Reid.
During an appearance on Marc Maron’s “WTF” podcast, Mila Kunis spoke about the origins of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher. Interestingly enough, she spoke about the fact that that she had no interest in Kutcher when their That ‘70s Show characters were a couple. Instead, when they kissed in front of cameras there were “no feelings whatsoever”.
In the years after That ‘70s Show came to an end, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher lost touch. Then everything changed when the actors saw each other for the first time in years at an awards show and began hooking up. During the aforementioned “WTF” podcast appearance, Kunis revealed that after a while she began to develop real feelings for Kutcher and her reaction was unique.
"I walked up to him and I was like, 'You know what? I actually care about you, and I don't wanna mess anything up, so I'm just going to walk away before it becomes too much and he was like, 'Got it.'" Thankfully, Ashton Kutcher quickly realized that he wanted Mila Kunis in his life so the “next day he showed up to my house, and he was like, 'Move in with me.'".
Ever since Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis got together, there has been a lot of interest in their relationship. With that in mind, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that many observers are interested in how Kutcher and Kunis raise their two kids. Fortunately for anyone curious about that, the couple has talked about their relationship with their kids during interviews.
In mid-2020, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis made a joint appearance on the podcast “Teach Me Something”. During the resulting conversation, the couple showered praise on their kids with Kunis even calling them the “greatest human beings ever created”. After that statement, Kunis spoke about how they like to keep things fun when she said; “We’re very goofy parents when it comes to our children”. For his part, Kutcher revealed that their “daughter demands that (he) tell a story from real life” nightly and he always complies.
A few months after that interview, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher made an appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan and talked about parenting during a pandemic. According to her, even though her kids were only 5 and 3 at the time, both of them were being homeschooled. After admitting she is “not a good teacher”, Kunis lavished praise on Kutcher when she said he is “fantastic at it” because he is “really good at explaining things”. For his part, Kutcher revealed that Kunis keeps their family afloat because he is “a focus-on-one-thing-at-a-time kind of person” while she is great at multi-tasking. "She can teach the kid how to ride a bike while cooking while being on a producer call at the same time."
