Well, that was fast. Just a year and a half after welcoming their first child, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are expecting their second child. The news was first reported after Kunis’ rep exclusively confirmed the news to PEOPLE.
But this isn’t the first bit of exciting news for the couple, who were married in July 2015 after the birth of their first daughter: Talk of expanding their family has been happening for quite some time. As recently as October, Kunis was open about wanting to have more children, telling Business Insider that she “for sure” wanted to add to their family.
And the timing for this news couldn’t be more perfect. Considering Kunis is soon going to begin promoting her new film Bad Moms, she’ll be able to draw on real life as she promotes a film all about living that mom life — the good, the bad, and the ugly parts of it. As Kunis works on her own personal balancing act of negotiating work life with mom life, she’ll be able to speak directly to the effort it takes to be a working woman, a wife, and a mother.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the star described what it was like to try to master all three: “Having this little human to raise … it was a balancing act, and then you learn how to be a great partner, and a great wife, and a great woman, and be yourself, and still be responsible for a living child. It’s definitely a learning process.”
Now with another child on the way, it will undoubtedly be another exercise in balancing all of the joys that life has brought to Kunis and Kutcher. Congratulations to the amazing couple and their beautiful family.
