How ‘Bad Moms’Mila Kunis Showed Again How Low-Key She & hubby Ashton Kutcher Are


Bad Moms star and current 2nd-time mom-to-be Mila Kunis revealed recently that she and her husband Ashton Kutcher got their wedding rings for about $90 each on Etsy, the popular website that sells hand made goods by local merchants.

While appearing on TBSConan Wednesday night promoting her new movie, Conan O’Brien praised her very unassuming wedding ring.

“It’s not showy,” the host told Kunis. “It’s not, like, incredibly flashy, which I think is cool.”

That’s when Kunis revealed more insight into the ring.

“I can’t believe that I’m telling anybody this story. So, my husband and I got married a little while ago. He got me a beautiful engagement ring. Like, stunning, stunning, stunning!” the That 70s Show alum added. “But for our wedding bands—for when we got married—I decided to just get them off of Etsy.”

She also shared a bit about the details of the purchase.

When browsing Etsy, Mila explained, “I wanted the thinnest possible platinum band. I mean, you can’t see it, but it’s super, super thin.”

She talked about being shocked at the price of Tiffany and Co. wedding bands.

“I was like, ‘They’re howmuch? This is astronomical,” the actress said. “So, I went on Etsy and I was like, ‘$90?’ I was like, ‘Buy now!’ Ashton’s was $100, so technically his wedding band was a little bit more expensive.”

She already had the big engagement ring so a cheaper band was “not a big deal,” Mila added.

“My engagement ring is beautiful, but I don’t ever wear it. This ring, I’m like, ‘It’s $90!’ It’s great. That person on Etsy had no clue whose ring they were making, but they were wonderful and very nice and polite and generous.”

Kunis and Kutcher are parents to 2-year old daughter Wyatt. They are currently expecting their second child.

Editor’s note: I saw Bad Moms yesterday with a bunch of moms and it was a great time. We all laughed our way thru it.

It was like The Hangover meets Mean Girls.  And Kunis was wonderful in it. Convincing and relatable. Highly recommend!

Watch the clip from Conan.

Bump Watch: Mila Kunis Goes Brave in a Jumpsuit at NYC ‘Bad Moms’ Premiere

mila kunis

Actress Mila Kunis was legit giving me sultry chic mom when she walked the red carpet to the New York City premiere of her new movie Bad Moms at Mila at Metrograph on July 18, 2016.

The 2nd time mom-to-be, who met her actor and tech investor husband Ashton Kutcher while the two co-starred on the long running hit show That 70s Show, skipped a traditional dress and went bold in a black jumpsuit with embroidered trip and pink pumps. Traditionally, pregnant ladies who make frequent trips to the bathroom avoid something that requires a ton of work to put on and take off.

She swapped out her usual shoulder length dark hair with a bob that framed her face, smokey eye and pink lip. I wish there was more volume to her bob but overall, I love the look.

And on her wrist was the traditional red string bracelet that is commonly worn among followers of the ancient Jewish spiritual tradition, Kabbalah. This is the second child for the Kutchers. They are parents to 1-year old Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, born in October 2014.


Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher Wanted Their Kids to Be Close In Age

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are preparing for another little one, and they couldn’t be happier.

E! News learns that the celeb couple, who are already parents to daughter Wyatt, are “thrilled” about the arrival of baby No. 2. And although there are already some obstacles with juggling a tiny tot and a pregnancy, these two lovebirds are conquering them together.

“They are very excited about baby No. 2. They wanted their kids to be close in age and Wyatt will be just over 2 [years old] when the baby is born,” a source tells E! News. “Ashton and Mila both enjoy parenting and spending time with Wyatt more than anything else, so they are thrilled to be adding to the family.”

The insider adds that although everything seems “so far so good” with Mila‘s pregnancy, the actress is definitely facing some differences when it comes to her every day routine.

“She is feeling good, although taking care of a toddler while pregnant is different for her than the first time around, where she could rest a lot more. Ashton dotes on her though. He always carries Wyatt and doesn’t want Mila doing any lifting at all. He has always been very hands-on, but he has really been taking over lately and trying to give Mila a break.”

Meanwhile, the duo are enjoying some quality time with their little girl (and with each other). “Ashton and Mila do everything together with Wyatt. They are always doing family lunches, trips to the zoo and taking Wyatt to dance class together. They are close with their families and always have them around as well. But they also have alone time where they are baby-free and all about each other. They have a good balance.”

Why the celebrity masculine names for baby girls trend is great

Mila Kunis and Rachel Bilson both gave their baby girls, birthed this year, masculine names

This year saw another surge of celebrities giving their newborn daughters masculine names.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher named their daughter Wyatt while their good friends Rachel Bilson and Hayden Christensen named their daughter Briar.

This time around Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard went with a more feminine name for their second daughter, Delta. But last year, the couple named their first daughter Lincoln. It was the same year that TV journalist Lisa Ling and her husband named their daughter Jett.

And while many didn’t follow Mariah Carey‘s lead in naming their daughter the masculine name Monroe as Carey and husband Nick Cannon did, several celebrities who gave birth this year did opt for it as a middle name.

Jenna Von Oy named her newest daughter Marlowe Monroe; Tila Tequila named her daughter Isabella Monroe while reality TV alum and baby concierge & maternity designer Rosie Pope named her daughter Bridget Monroe. Poppy Montgomery went with the trend but for her son, naming him Gus Monroe.

I am 100% in support of the unisex or masculine name for a girl trend.

Recently, I was reminded of a riddle about a father and son who got in an accident where the son survived and when he arrived in the emergency room for treatment, the surgeon declared, “I can’t operate on him. He is my son.”

Many people guessing that riddle were stumped how could it be. It is because many picture professions like surgeons to be male. The answer is the surgeon is the boy’s mother.

Similarly, in my professional life, because my name is odd, whenever I get unsolicited pitches at my law firm  for services via email or snail mail, the sendees always err on the masculine and address me as Mister. The assumption is most lawyers are males and it’s a safer guess.

But it doesn’t stop in predominantly masculine fields.  When I ran a small boutique public relations firm, whenever I would eventually meet a client or someone I was only corresponding with electronically or over social media, they’d tell me they thought I was a male. This would be the case despite the fact that PR is a traditionally heavy-female field. Perhaps, business owners are thought to more likely be male.

But from that experience, I know that I was granted any benefit of the doubt and extra leeway given to males by accident. Naturally, the presumption will be trumped once there is an in person meeting but by then, we would have had plenty opportunity to prove our value on the merits and not be burdened by any negative stereotypes or limitations heaped upon women.

If but for that, I say go for masculine names for girls. Give them a head up and without the burden of sexism across a computer screen.

6 celebrity couples who split up before baby was born

Bellyitch Rewind
I saw this smokin’ hawt photo of Christina Milian today and thought boy is her ex singer/ mega producer The Dream missing out. The couple was one of several celebrity pairs to split in the middle of a pregnancy and BEFORE the baby was born.
Christina Milian was 8 months pregnant when she filed for divorce from The Dream  in 2010.
Personally, I know of a few friends who wound up splitting with their boyfriend or spouse before having their baby and each of them say it was very challenging being pregnant and not at least having someone to help them through those challenging months. A few have said, in hindsight, they would’ve waited it out until baby was born. Oy! Here are four other celebrities who split before their child was born:
In 2004, four months before delivering her 1st child, son Leni, whose dad is billionaire Flavio Briatore, Heidi Klum started dated Seal, who she later married and had 3 kids with before they too split in 2012.
Rapper Nas and singer Kelis were in the middle of filming their MTV reality TV show when they split while she was 7 months pregnant with their first child together in 2009. 
Alexis Knapp had to get Ryan Phillippe to submit to a paternity test to prove that the child she was carrying was his.  The two split before Knapp confirmed she was pregnant in 2010. 
Ex Spice Girl Melanie Brown too had to force comedian/actor Eddie Murphy to submit to a paternity test to prove he was the father to her then-soon-to-be born daughter Angel Iris born ironically on Murphy’s 47th birthday, April 3, 2007.  The couple had split in 2006 and back then there was no way of proving paternity until the baby was born. 
No one knows for sure who the dad is to Mad Men star January Jones’ first child, son Xander, but she announced she was pregnant in May 2011, five months after splitting with her boyfriend Saturday Night Live‘s  Jason Sudeikis. Rumors swirled that Ashton Kutcher may have been the dad. The two are good  friends.

Edited to Add: I found this post of 12 Celebrities that broke up before the baby was born that Crushable did a year ago which also includes Denise Richards and Charlie Sheen, Tom Brady and Bridget Moynahan, Mary Louise Parker and Billy Crudup and Tiki and Ginny Barber which I so would have added to this list had I remembered about them too!

Why are people giving Mila Kunis a hard time about her interviews?

“Leave Mila Alone!”
Star-Ledger reporter Stephen Whitty had some not-so-nice things to say about a recent 25 minute telephone interview he had with mom-to-be Mila Kunis while she was promoting her latest project, Third Person.
According to Whitty, Kunis assumed when he asked her in the beginning of the interview how she was feeling, he was referring to her pregnancy. The question led her to quickly shut him down, “I don’t talk about that for publication.” And it went downhill from there, he says.
The Philly Tribune summarized:

“Every question I ask over the next 25 minutes seems to strike her as either dull, insulting or burdened by some sort of agenda,” he writes. 

Kunis appears less than impressed with the questions that follow – from her immigration to the United States as a child (“It’s the most mundane subject possible”) to her string of dramatic roles (“People have this misconception that comedy’s easy”). Then they touched on what made her take up acting in the first place (“There was nothing else to it. I don’t know if that’s the answer you’re fishing for.”) Ouch.

Some lay blame on the snippy interview on pregnancy hormones and another on the fact that there was another quasi-unflattering Marie Claire  interview that released that same day as the Whitty interview.
Which reminds us that the Jupiter Ascending star who is expecting her first child with fiance Ashton Kutcher did reveal to loving her new boobs in that Marie Claire piece. 
“They’ve tripled in size. I was a 34A; now I’m a 36C. I’m so excited! I’m telling everyone I know, ‘Go ahead, touch them!’ Without being an asshole, I have to say, I love being pregnant,” she mused.
About the type of children she wanted to raise, she said, “I just don’t want my kids to be assholes. I feel like so many kids nowadays are. Both of us just want to have well-behaved, honest, nice children who people meet and say, ‘That’s a good kid.'”
Perfect answers if you ask us!


 Again, Leave Mila ALONE! ha!

5 celebrities welcoming their 5th baby (How does it Equal 15 parents tho?)

FIVE is the number for this FIFTH day of the work week for some celebrity birth and pregnancy stories around the web involving baby number FIVE. 

But in this era of blended families and separation and divorce so common, there are 15 parents in this story. Read on: 
After welcoming 4 daughters, country singer Zac Brown and his wife Shelly finally welcomed their 5th child, a son, this week on May 5th! The couple are parents to 3-year old Joni Mason, 4 1/2 year old Georgia Slone, 5 1/2 year old Lucy and 7-year old Justice. In 2011, after Joni was born, Brown joked that he planned to keep on trying until he got his boy. I guess Shelly was down for the plan! (smile)
Meanwhile, Bruce Willis and his wife model Emma Heming-Willis welcomed their second child, daugher  Evelyn Penn Willis, also on May 5th they are parents to 2-year old Mabel Ray. And this is Willis’ 5th child as he is dad to 20-year old Tallulah, 20, 22-year old Scout, 22, and 25-year old Rumer with Demi Moore.
[Side note: Demi’s other ex Ashton Kutcher is reportedly expecting his first kid too with fiance Mila Kunis]
Finally, shortly after announcing that she is pregnant with her fifth child, British TV personality and model Katie Price announced to split with her hubby Kieran Hayler who is dad to their 8-month old son together Jett Riviera.  The couple married last January 2013 after dating only a few months. 
This will be Price’s 5th child.  She has three other children with exes Peter Andre and Dwight Yorke: 12-year old Harvey, 12, 8-year old Junior and 6-year old Princess.
Also across the pond, singer Kerry Katonia  of Atomic Kitten welcomed her fifth baby with her beau George Kay Kerry is already a mother to three daughters and one son, to her past husbands Brian McFadden and Mark Croft.
Also, this week Donald Trump Jr.‘s wife Vanessa tweeted that she has FIVE weeks left until she welcomes her 5th child. The Trumps, who have been married for 8 years are parents to 6-year old Kai, 4-year old Donald III,  2-year old Tristan and 15-months old Spencer.
Was our math right? Did you count 15 parents too?

Bump Watch: Mila Kunis wears traditional clothes for hiding a bump

Since word leaked that Mila Kunis is pregnant with her and fiancé Ashton Kutcher’s first child, she’s been seen out and about and attended stage events in tops that are perfect for concealing a baby bump. 
For anyone trying to keep a pregnancy under wraps, you’ll want to go with A-line or empire waist tops or dresses and dresses & blouses that billow and gap in the center.
This would be the future Mr. and Mrs. Kutcher’s first kid together. 

Report: Mila Kunis and Asthton Kutcher are expecting their first child

Less than 6 months after his divorce from ex Demi Moore was finalized and a month after his engagement to co-That 70s Show alum Mila Kunis, actor Ashton Kutcher is reportedly expecting his first child with Kunis.
Apparently the news was unplanned, sources tell OK!  magazine. The couple has dated for two years and Kunis was reportedly seen attending a pre-natal yoga class in Hollywood, California, E!Online  reports.
“It was a total shock for both of them, but they feel up for the challenge,” the friend told OK “It didn’t seem like it was possible for them to fall any deeper in love, but the prospect of raising an insta-family together has solidified their commitment to each other.”
Interesting too is that Kunis was recently named as a spokesperson for Jim Bean liquor.  We’ll assume it will be apple juice in the glass in the campaign.
