Kutcher appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Friday and had this to say about parenthood, “[It’s] just the two of us [taking care of the baby]. It’s awesome. It’s unbelievable.”
The consummate comedian, of course, made light of the fact that new parenthood is a lot harder than you think it’s going to be and that babies don’t come with manuals.
“When you first get them it’s, you’re all excited, and you’re ready to do all these things. And then you realize it’s like getting a new cell phone where all the features don’t work yet… it won’t make calls, and it doesn’t do a lot, but it looks really cute.”
The proud daddy couldn’t say enough about his baby girl, but it’s what he said about his baby mama that has us all a-stir. “The most amazing thing about having a baby is my partner, Mila. She’s the greatest mom — I can’t even! Like, I go to work every day, and I come home and she’s perfect… I know that something probably didn’t go amazing, but she never complains. It’s unbelievable. She’s incredible.”
But the most emotional and profound thing he said truly touched our hearts. He quoted Carlos Slim’s saying about leaving better children for the world instead of a better world for your children, and we lost our last bit of sense altogether.
“I try to live by that. I really look at this as the greatest opportunity of my life,” Kutcher said.
