Ashton Kutcher Compares Parenthood to Getting a New Cell Phone
By Jackie Willis
Is being a new parent really like working a phone that doesn't take photos?
That's what Ashton Kutcher compared his experience to when daytime host Ellen DeGeneres asked the Two and a Half Men star about his 2-month-old daughter Wyatt.
"You know it’s incredible. When you first get them it's, you're all excited and you're like ready to do all these things," he said of being a new dad. "And then you realize it's like getting a new cell phone where all the features don't work yet."
Further explaining this bizarre comparison, Ashton continued, "It's like a phone doesn't have it. [It] 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."
The 36-year-old actor and his fiance Mila Kunis are taking care of their newborn without the help of nannies and the new dad says that Wyatt is discovering new things every day. "She found herself in the mirror and realized she was able to control the thing in the mirror," he recalled.
His daughter wasn't the only lady in his life Ashton was doting on while chatting with Ellen. "But the most amazing thing about having a baby is my partner, Mila," he touted. "She's the greatest mom. I can't even, like I go to work every day and I come home and she's like 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."
The former That '70s Show star manages to become even sweeter when Ellen asks him the biggest surprise he's faced since Mila gave birth to Wyatt. "Ya know, I it's just how much you can love another person," he said. "You think you know how much you can love another person and then you have a child and you realize you didn't know. It's infinitely rewarding."
Mila, 31, made her first TV appearance since giving birth "two months, nine weeks" ago on the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on Thursday. She too gushed over her daughter, and revealed the benefits of having a girl over a boy. Check out the chat, below.
