Mila Kunis: “Ashton & I Wanted Kids So Bad”

A Bad Moms Christmas star Mila Kunis covers NET-A-PORTER’s digital magazine The EDIT, and opens up about family life with husband, The Ranch star Ashton Kutcher, and their two children — daughter Wyatt, 3, and son Dimitri, 11 months.

On raising their kids right: “I don’t think any parent wants to be responsible for a child that grows up to be an a******. I want to raise a kid that I would be friends with. I’m not friends with my daughter now — she’s not my friend, she’s my daughter — but later in life. In my 20s, [my mom] became a friend of mine.”

On their kids cursing: “My daughter has used ‘f***.’ She just went, ‘Ah, f*** this!’ Ashton and I looked at each other, acknowledged it and walked away and giggled to ourselves. Yeah, I’m not proud of it.”

On being “a mess” when it comes to her children: “[My kids are] where my vulnerability is. My job, it comes and goes. You don’t get a job, you get a job, you don’t get a job. Your kids, you just want one thing.”

On sticking to a schedule: “[We have] routined the s*** out of our kids. We pick out my daughter’s clothes the night before, I make her lunch the night before, it’s all in the fridge in the morning when we wake up. One of us grabs the baby — probably me, because I nurse the little one — [Ashton] goes for Wyatt. Dresses Wyatt, brushes teeth, potties. We go downstairs, we eat our breakfast, we chit-chat, we play some music, off to school she goes. Done!”

On wanting a family: “Ashton and I wanted kids so bad; we were so ready to be parents. We were able to have this little family the way we wanted, and I’m so grateful for it and it’s the one thing that I can’t control.”

On how Ashton helped her hone her career from behind the scenes: “Honestly, full disclosure, when I started dating Ashton, I was like, ‘I don’t want to know [about the] business side, it makes me so uncomfortable.’ And he said, ‘Right, stop, get on the call.’ And then I started educating myself, getting the language right. I would ask him questions, Googled lots of things, and now I know what everybody’s doing, I know what I can do, I know what I can ask for. I am way more involved than I was five years ago. I’ve been in the industry 25 years and only five years ago I started. Think about that, perspective-wise.”

On learning to say “no” during her career: “When I was 19, I made a conscious decision to surround myself with people [who are] better and smarter than I am. Prior to that point, any job that came my way, I was like, ‘Yeah, I’ll do this piece of s***! Who cares, acting’s fun. When I decided it was going to be my career, I reined everything in: ‘No, I don’t want to do this movie – it’s great on paper, but I’m gonna hold out.’”

Chris Hemsworth & Twins: “Epic Weekend”

Gone fishin’.

Thor star Chris Hemsworth enjoyed an “epic weekend” with his 3-year-old twin sons Tristan and Sasha.

“Epic weekend with these little legends,” The Avengers star, 34, Instagrammed the image Tuesday.

The Ghostbusters actor recently dished on family life with wife, Fast Five actress Elsa Pataky, and their three children, including 5-year-old daughter India.

“My wife and I fell in love, had kids, didn’t really see each other for a few years, then fell back in love,” he admitted.

Hemsworth went on to talk about Hollywood being “suffocating.”

“You stop becoming a person,” he said of Tinseltown. “You have nothing to draw from because you’re living in this world of pretend on and off the screen.”

And he admitted that his wife made career sacrifices when she became a mom.

“In terms of work, she’s certainly given up more than I have,” shared the father-of-three. “She’d like me to step back and be at home with the kids more, and of course, I want that, too. But I feel like I’m at this crucial point in my career—I’ve just got to set up for longevity or I’ll slip off.”

He added: “Once you have children, every instinct and every moment of your time is consumed by that. You’ve got nothing for each other, so make sure you have date night even if it’s once in a blue moon, because most of the time you’re just too tired and you’d actually prefer to sleep. There’s no shortage of how much I tell her I love her. But I guess there’s no detail in it, why or how.”

It sounds like he’s working on being a more thoughtful husband.

“It’s funny. I can be so attentive and listen to people I hardly know, then you get home and you’re like, ‘What was that? The ‘Yeah, no, that sounds good.’ Why do we do that? But you’ve got to switch off at some point, you know? I prefer the efficiency of phone calls,” the father-of-three shared. “With texts, the back and forth pulls me away from the kids and what I’m doing. Not to say I don’t do it. But as a society, we’re close to not communicating verbally anymore.”

Mindy Kaling: Baby Bump Watch

Mom-to-be Mindy Kaling posted an updated photo of her baby bump via Instagram.

“Look at me! In front of the @marlboroughlife crest having just done a Q&A for their student body. I have never met so many impressive, smart, thoughtful young people. Go Marlborough!” she captioned the image donning a checkered midi maternity dress.

In a recent interview, Kaling confessed her pre-motherhood jitters.

“I’m really happy that that’s what I project but right now I just feel so anxious,” she said when asked if she’ll be a fun mom.

She added: “But I’d like to be the fun mom. I know I’m gonna be the dorky mom. So it could be kind of fun, too. I think that would be nice.”

The Mindy Project star, 38, reflected on her late mother, who died of pancreatic cancer in 2012.

“My mom was incredibly fierce and so devoted to us, just loved us and really wanted us to be happy no matter what we did,” Kaling shared.

“My career choice was not something that she was familiar with and she was just so supportive of that. And if I could give that to my child, just that open-mindedness, I’d be so happy,” she continued.

And she’s happy to openly criticize other parents now.

“It’s so easy to criticize parenting until you’re a parent, so one of the nice things about becoming a parent is that I’ll be able to openly criticize other parenting because I will have a child,” she laughed.

In July, The Office alum debuted her baby bump. The actress is remaining mum on the identity of the baby’s father.

It’ll be a girl for the single mom-to-be.
