6 Times Mila Kunis Deserved a Mother of the Year Award in 2017
Mila Kunis has been everywhere this year between her new movie A Bad Moms Christmas and her work as the spokesperson for Jim Beam, which is especially impressive since she has two adorable kiddos, Wyatt, 3, and Dimitri, 1, at home. But despite all the success Mila has had career-wise in 2017, she's been an even bigger influence in the parenting sector; from gushing over her children's father, Ashton Kutcher, to explaining why she's not springing for Christmas gifts this year, Mila delivered big time. Scroll through for her best parenting moments in 2017.
When she admitted to being tired just like the rest of us.
No matter if you're a famous actress or not, motherhood pretty much guarantees all women one thing: more than enough sleepless nights! Mila opened up about how she's constantly tired in an interview (and to be honest, we wish we had her positive outlook!): "I'm ragged tired. Who cares? My kids are healthy, I'm happy."
When she and Ashton made sure their kids weren't in the public eye.
Living your life constantly in the spotlight can be a huge challenge for adults, let alone little kids. And both Mila and Ashton agree that it's best to keep their children out of the Hollywood scene. Ashton opened up about their decision in an interview with Ariana Huffington, explaining their thought process: "We don't share any photos of our kids publicly because we feel that being public is a personal choice."
When she got her son the most incredible shirt ever.
Mila and Ashton proved they were the greatest of all time (and had an awesome sense of humor to boot!) when they dressed up their son, Dimitri, in a shirt featuring Mom and Dad from their time on That '70s Show. Yes to all of this.
When she got real about why she's not getting her kids Christmas presents.
Perhaps one of our favorite aspects of Mila's parenting style is she's no bullsh*t when it comes to laying down the law. The actress explained why she didn't feel compelled to get her kiddos Christmas presents this year, and honestly, her reason is worthy of a standing ovation.
When she made sure Ashton knew who was really in charge.
Earlier this year, Ashton went on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote the newest season of The Ranch and got pretty candid about his relationship with his wife, saying: "Everything Mila says is right! She's my wife, so that's just what it is. Everything she says is right."
When she wasn't shy about saying how awesome her husband is.
Mila had the sweetest response when a reporter at E! asked her what, if anything, annoyed her about Ashton. "My husband does not annoy me. He really doesn't," she said. "It's an honest answer and it's the opposite of what people want to hear. I don't know if [being annoyed] happens later; we've only been married for a handful of years, and it's still very much in the honeymoon phase." As if they could get any cuter.
