Even the most private among us have trouble keeping mum when it comes to big baby news. Despite his low-key relationship with the press, Ashton Kutcher accidentally slipped during an interview on the Today Show and may have revealed the gender of his new baby. Kutcher and wife Mila Kunis are expecting their second baby — and it seems he is turning Kutcher into one nervous second-time dad, according to the star.
While speaking about his 2-year-daughter Wyatt, Kutcher let the cat out of the bag by saying, “She points to Mila and she’s like ‘baby brother’ when she points to the belly. And then she points to dad and she goes, ‘beer,’ so I think she gets there is something in the belly but I don’t quite think that she knows that it’s not going to be a plastic doll yet.”
Ahem, care to back up, Ashton? Too late, we heard him right — baby brother. Yay! The happy couple is (probably) welcoming a little boy! Of course, Kutcher didn’t elaborate on his slip of the tongue, so we can only imagine he realized he had made a boo-boo and would be hearing it from his equally private wife when he got home.
Kutcher then switched the focus to his feelings about having another baby, and it’s actually sweet to hear he is as conflicted about his role as a dad as a lot of us are when we become parents — for the first, second or fourth time. “How am I gonna run after this one and deal with — I thought the first one was exhausting in the beginning,” Kutcher said. “I’m a little terrified to be honest. It’s intensely scary.”
Having a second child can be scary — but Kutcher and Kunis seem like naturals when it comes to parenting, and they’ll be just fine. Both share a down-to-earth attitude when it comes to raising their children — they even plan to tell them they aren’t wealthy so that they do not grow up feeling entitled to things they didn’t earn. And if they really are having a boy, there’s no doubt their little guy will look up to his dad as one of the coolest guys around.
