Date December 6, 2017

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are now married with two children. Seeing how happy they are these days makes us want to look back at how far they have come.

Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher

The pair first met on the set of That 70s Show' in 1998. Ashton was 20 years old while Mila was only 14. They both played the roles of teenagers on the show. At the time, their relationship was purely platonic. In 2009, she told WomensHealth, while stating that all the cast of the show were close, that Ashton helped her with her science homework.


Speaking to PEOPLE in 2012, she also revealed that Ashton was her first kiss and that she had a very big crush on him.


Even though they were still friends as the years went by, they were both in relationships with other people. Mila Kunis was romantically linked to Macauley Culkin 2002, they dated until 2011. Meanwhile, Ashton met Demi Moore in 2003 and they got married in 2005. However, the marriage, like Mila's relationship, also ended in 2011.

In the Spring of 2012, rumours of a relationship between Mila and Ashton began to swirl and it became confirmed later that year. In 2014, Mila was spotted rocking a beautiful diamond ring at an LA Laker game, confirming that they were engaged.


In February 2016, Mila revealed that she and Ashton actually had a casual intimate relationship at first which mirrored the movies each of them were starring in at the time. She was among the cast of Friends With Benefits while he played the role of Adam Franklin in No Strings Attached. Speaking to Sirius XM, Mila said:

We were in similar movies and we should have paid attention to them because this doesn't work in real life.

She said that, at the time, she had just gotten out of a long-term relationship while Ashton was in the middle of his divorce from Demi so they agreed that it was just going to be casual:

Marriage and kids

In 2014, Mila was reportedly pregnant with the couple's first child. That same year, they had their first daughter, Wyatt. In 2015, the officially tied the knots. Their second child, Dimitri Portwood, was born in November 2016.


While appearing on The Howard Stern Show last year, the actress said she believed that timing was important in their relationship. And since they met when she was a teenager, she understood that they had to grow before they could become a real couple:

We would never be together based on the people that we used to be.

For the first time since they were officially a couple, Mila and Ashton walked the red carpet together. They attended the 2018 Breakthrough Prize Awards ceremony on December 3rd. This was their first red carpet appearance since they were co-stars on That 70s Show.


It's pretty amazing to see how far this pair has come as a couple. Who would have thought they would have their happy-ever-after with each other when they played the funny teens in a sitcom years ago? We wish them a lifetime of happiness.
