Although it took actor Ashton Kutcher and co-star Mila Kunis, 11 years after their first kiss, to start dating, the pair couldn't get enough of each other after they did. They moved in together three months after announcing their relationship.


Celebrity marriages are not rare among stars in the entertainment industry, but Ashton Kutcher and his wife Mila Kunis have one of the most beautiful relationships in history. These two lovebirds have made building a family while maintaining their careers look effortless.

Kutcher and his bride are excellent actors who have remained top stars in the movie industry since shooting to fame. However, despite being acclaimed actors, these two are proud of their love, dating back to 1998.

Kunis once revealed she and Kutcher started dating several years after their first kiss. During a 2001 interview with People, the "Black Swan" actress admits being smitten by Kutcher since 1998. She said they had their first kiss on the set of "That '70s Show."


While filming the hit 1998 sitcom, Kunis and Kutcher worked on a script that involved kissing. However, Kunis, who already had a crush on the model turned actor, became nervous and uncomfortable. Kunis said:

"I was like, 'Oh, he's so cute, it's the Calvin Klein model!"

Fortunately, Kutcher tried putting her at ease, and the actress remembered him being so lovely with his words and jokes that made her laugh. Meanwhile, Kunis wasn't the only one who was anxious at the time.

Kutcher once revealed that he was just as nervous as Kunis, although he didn't show it. The actor said he had no idea their first kiss on "That '70s Show" was Kunis's first.


However, he also noted that he was happy being clueless as he said it would have made him tenser. Meanwhile, the two stars kissed a few more times before Kutcher left the series.



Despite sharing a romantic smooch on "That '70s Show," it took Kutcher and Kunis years to start a relationship. The "No Strings Attached" actor left the FOX TV series during its 8th season but remained in touch with Kunis, who once said she wasn't interested in him romantically.

However, while they may have remained in contact, the two were with different spouses at the time. Kutcher was married to actress Demi Moore, and Kunis was with boyfriend Macaulay Culkin. By 2011, Kutcher and Kunis became single again.


Moore and Kutcher began dating in 2003 and married in September 2005 despite a 15-year age difference. Following Moore's divorce announcements, Kutcher took to social media to share a post about how marriage is one of the most challenging things in the world. But he did write that he would always cherish his time with Moore.

Meanwhile, the timing of their broken relationships turned out to have worked perfectly for the "That '70s Show" co-stars. After splitting from their exes, Kutcher and Kunis hit it off at an award show, and the "Bad Moms" star said on The Marc Maron on his podcast in 2018:

"I was looking around, and there was a really beautiful man from the back. I was literally like, 'Oh, he's kinda hot.'… And then he turned around, and I was like, 'Oh, my God, it's Kutch.'"



After Kutcher and Kunis met again as singles, he invited her to his housewarming party, and since then, the pair started hanging out more frequently.

Speaking on Maron's "WTF" podcast, Kunis said she slept for the first time in a man's house since becoming single after she and Kutcher started hooking up in 2012.

She further revealed that just like her onscreen character in "Friends With Benefits" and Kutcher's in "No Strings Attached," they both started having an affair, but they weren't dating.


Just like in the movie, the casual relationship didn't last, and Kunis said in an interview in 2016 that she tried to stop their affair three months later.

Of course, Kutcher didn't accept and instead asked her to move in with him. Although the actor had announced his split from ex-wife Moore at the time, reports later surfaced that their divorce was finalized in 2013.

By 2014 Kunis was spotted wearing a Tiffany engagement ring, and in the months that followed, the actress revealed she was expecting their first child during a discussion with Ellen DeGeneres.



When Kutcher and Kunis tied the knot, it wasn't in the public's eye. But, Kutcher opened up about his and the "Ted" actress's secret wedding during a discussion on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show." According to the doting husband, it was a ninja effort.

Since saying "I do," the celebrity couple has welcomed two adorable kids together. And Kunis, just like her role in "Bad Moms," is a loving mother in reality. Kutcher, 43, had also been taking his dad role seriously.


Kunis gave birth to their first child, daughter Wyatt on October 1, 2014. Wyatt is notably a brilliant kid. Her father revealed in 2017 on "The Tonight Show" that his daughter started taking English classes when she was only 2-and-a-half. She also said she speaks and understands Russian and Spanish.

The couple's son Dimitri was born on November 30, 2016. Kutcher and his son are very close pals, and they have been spotted together on several occasions. Dimitri is always in Kutcher's arms, and the movie star once said it because the young boy never walks.



While attending the grand opening of the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine of USC in Los Angeles, Kunis, 38, revealed his kids have been introduced to Jackie Burkhart and Michael Kelso, the actress and her husband's onscreen character on "That '70s Show". However, Kunis noted her children hadn't seen their movies because they are on children's Netflix.

According to Kutcher, Wyatt only got to know her parents met on a show because someone told them. The actress was forced to explain what transpired while she starred alongside Kutcher in the 1998 sitcom, but she wasn't sure that 6-year-old Wyatt got the message.
