Ashton: Mila's mothering blows my mind
Ashton Kutcher looks at fatherhood as the greatest opportunity of his life.
The 36-year-old actor and his stunning fiancée welcomed their daughter Wyatt in September and love every moment of parenthood. The couple are keen to be hands-on with their little girl so rather than hiring a nanny, Mila has been at home on baby duty while her beau heads to work.
“She’s the greatest mom,” Ashton gushed to Ellen DeGeneres on an episode of her talk show, airing tonight. “I go to work every day, and I come home and she’s perfect. And it just seems like everything went amazing. And I know that something probably didn’t go amazing, but she never tells... it’s unbelievable. She’s incredible.
“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. And I think the only way to do that is by being the one who’s there.”
Ashton and Mila got engaged in February of this year after striking up a romance in 2012, following the Two and a Half Men star's split from his ex-wife Demi Moore. Both parents are overwhelmed by the adoration they feel towards Wyatt and Ashton admits it's a sensation he has never experienced before.
“You think you know how much you can love another person, and then you have a child and you realise you didn’t know. It’s infinitely rewarding," he smiled.
“There’s a great quote by [Mexican businessman] Carlos Slim, and he said, ‘Most people think they need to make a better world for their children, but the reality is we need to make better children for our world.’ And I try to live by that. And I think I really look at this as the greatest opportunity of my life.”
Their daughter may be a mere ten weeks old but Ashton is already planning lots of activities for them to share. In the meantime, he and Mila are entertained enough by Wyatt discovering herself in the mirror.
“It’s like getting a new cell phone where all the features don’t work yet,” he grinned. “It’s like a phone that won’t take pictures and you’re like, ‘Why won’t my phone take pictures?’ And it won’t make calls and it doesn’t do a lot, but it looks really cute.”
