Ashton Kutcher Balances Work And Family Life


( 4UMF NEWS )Ashton Kutcher Balances Work And Family Life:

The former Two and a Half Men actor shared a picture of himself carrying a "guitar, drone, wetsuit, baby chair, script" and Chicago Bears hat outside of the home he shares with Mila Kunis and their daughter Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, 8 months. "This may be a metaphor for my life," he wrote on Facebook Monday. "...Balancing act." One of the family's dogs looked on as the 37-year-old TV star struggled to keep everything from toppling over. It's not clear if the dog is the 16-year-old one Kutcher recently tweeted about, who "had surgery" last Thursday.

Kutcher first opened up about fatherhood on Conan last year. "We're really privileged that we have time and can afford to take time. We don't have a nanny or a night nurse or anything. It's just the two of us," he said. "It's unbelievable. It's the greatest thing on earth. As soon as this child was born I immediately wanted to call my parents and just apologize because I never knew how much they loved me."

When he appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in December, Kutcher explained why it was important that he and Kunis not hire a nanny. "We just want to know our kid," the former That '70s Show star said. "We want to be the people that know what to do when the baby's crying to make the baby not cry anymore. We want to know when she makes a little face or something. We want to be emotionally in touch with her, and I think the only way to do that is by being the one who's there."

Regarding fatherhood, he said, "I really look at this as the greatest opportunity of my life." Kutcher also called Kunis "the greatest mom" he's ever known. "I go to work every day and I come home and she's perfect. And it just seems like everything went amazing," he said. "And I know that something probably didn't go amazing, but she never complains. It's unbelievable. She's incredible."
