New mom Mila Kunis left her four-month old baby at home for the first time this week. The Jupiter Ascending actress is making her rounds on the film’s press tour with stops at The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Jimmy Kimmel Live!
Kunis insists that though she trusts dad Ashton Kutcher to look after their daughter Wyatt while she’s away, "It’s really weird to be out."
"This is my very first time out and about. Swear to God! I left [Wyatt] at home yesterday for the first time during the premiere. It’s frightening. I have to be honest. I was with her every day for the first four months of her little life. I cried. I did. It’s weird. It’s very strange. If anyone’s a mom, and being a stay-at-home mom, it’s a very weird feeling to all of a sudden leave your child."
Kimmel teased, "You mean you don’t trust [Ashton Kutcher] because he’d be using her as a prop in a Punk’d sketch or something like that?"
Kunis laughed and replied, "I trust him! He’s an incredible father! But the way that I hold the baby and the way that he holds the baby…I mean, he’s like a jungle gym!"
Kunis, who looks phenomenal for giving birth four months ago, credited breast-feeding for her slim figure. "Breastfeeding is like working out."
She’s also exercising to get back into shape. "I am very active. I hike almost every day with her," she revealed. "I strap her in a papoose and away we go."
Mila’s maybe husband Kutcher is known for his app developments, and since the birth of his daughter, he’s been focusing on infant-oriented ideas.
Kunis shared, "People bring more baby things to him, and he kind of just runs them by me. Like, there’s these things called Bellababies – I’m not doing an advertisement for anything, by the way! – but you put the little microphone around the belly and you can hear the baby’s heartbeat. I think this is awful because unless you know what you’re doing, you may not hear the baby’s heartbeat and then panic ensues. It’s like WebMD but bad. If your baby’s like 7 months, you’ll hear it anywhere. But if your baby’s a little poppy seed, you really have to dig for it. Like, you gotta find that baby heartbeat," she said. "And let me tell you, at 3 months I was like, 'Where is it?!'"
Near the end of her talk show appearance, the 31-year-old actress shared a funny story from when Kunis and Kutcher had just started dating – Kutcher encouraged his new girlfriend to join Tinder!
"Listen, when we started dating – this is an awesome story and this is fact! – Tinder hadn’t really been out yet. And he was like, 'So, babe, I got this thing that I’ve been thinking about. You need to do me a favor and download this app.' I was like, 'No problem.' I download Tinder, OK? I was like, 'What is this?' Like, swiping things left and right. I was like, 'This is amazing!' This is stuff I do at home. He makes me go on all of these websites. Everything!"
Sounds like family life is fun at the Kutcher house!
