There are plenty of celeb parents who share a ton about their kids on social media and in interviews, but Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are not those parents. The pair is usually pretty private. But Kunis recently opened up in a new interview for NET-A-PORTER’s digital magazine The EDIT, sharing that she and Kutcher are very conscious about not raising their kids Dimitri Portwood, 11 months, and daughter Wyatt Isabelle, 3, to be “a–holes.”

“I don’t think any parent wants to be responsible for a child that grows up to be an a–hole,” the Bad Moms 2 star said. “I want to raise a kid that I would be friends with. ... I’m not friends with my daughter now — she’s not my friend, she’s my daughter — but later in life. In my 20s, [my mom] became a friend of mine.”

Totally fair!

She went onto admit that Wyatt has picked up a few profanities from hearing her mom and dad. “My daughter has used ‘f—.’ She just went, ‘Ah, f— this,'" the mom of two said. “Ashton and I looked at each other, acknowledged it and walked away and giggled to ourselves. Yeah, I’m not proud of it.”

Kunis also explained that she and her husband are pretty strict when it comes to getting their LOs on a schedule. “[We've] routined the s— out of our kids,” she explained. "We pick out my daughter’s clothes the night before, I make her lunch the night before, it’s all in the fridge in the morning when we wake up. One of us grabs the baby — probably me, because I nurse the little one — [Ashton] goes for Wyatt. Dresses Wyatt, brushes teeth, potties.”

If it sounds like they're naturals, perhaps that's because they've both prioritized parenthood for a long time. "Ashton and I wanted kids so bad; we were so ready to be parents,” she noted. “We were able to have this little family the way we wanted, and I’m so grateful for it, and it’s the one thing that I can’t control.”

Seems like overall, Kunis and Kutcher's parenting philosophy and outlook is pretty damn on-point.
