Ashton Kutcher Totally Nails the Struggle of Having a Toddler
Ashton Kutcher stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show yesterday to chat about helicopters, parenting, and yes, helicopter parenting.
The actor opened up about his secret wedding to wife Mila Kunis—saying it was a "ninja effort" to keep the helicopters out— then pretty much gushed nonstop for the rest of the visit about the couple's 18-month-old daughter Wyatt.
"She loves dancing," he said. "She's down with dancing. I mean, if I sing 'The Wheels on the Bus Go Round and Round,' she loses it. That's her thing. She just loves it when the wheels go 'round."
Well, who doesn't?!
The former That 70s Show star also told Ellen that Wyatt's got some serious moves, even standing up to bust one of them out for the audience. "She also likes to Whip and Nae Nae," he said. "It's whippin' and whippin' and nae nae-ing. Mama taught her that."
Awww. He just called Mila "mama." Swoon.
But the best part of the visit was when Kutcher totally nailed the wrangling involved when living with a toddler. "She's actually crossed that threshold," he explained. "You know, the first year you spend just trying to keep them alive. And then after that you hit a point where your job is to keep them from killing themselves."
"Like, it's not just about 'I gotta keep it surviving'," he said. "She literally tries to kill herself on a regular basis. Like she doesn't realize—that's a cliff and that could be dangerous! She'll just jump off the thing. You think that they would come with instincts around fire and large falls and they don't!"
The struggle is real, Ashton. The struggle is real.
