Hollywood favourites Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis added a baby boy to their family a few days ago, and Kutcher’s just revealed the name they’ve chosen for the little guy.
You may already have known the new addition was a boy, as Kutcher let it slip during a Today Show interview ahead of the birth. This time he’s deliberately spilled the beans, via his A Plus website, happily revealing that their new little guy had been named Dimitri Portwood.
The latest Kutcher joined the gang at 1.21am on November 30th.
Dimitri weighed in at a pretty chunky 8 pounds, 15 ounces and is a brother for 2-year-old big sister Wyatt.
The notoriously private couple, who met on the set of That 70’s Show eighteen years ago, have chosen not to share a photo of their newborn son, explaining that they’re mindful of their children’s privacy.
“We’d like to allow our kids to make their own choices on whether to have a life in the public eye or not. We don’t want to make the choice for them,” Kutcher told A Plus.
The pair were equally reluctant to share shots of daughter Wyatt, and we have to say we find this pretty refreshing.
Kutcher and Kunis famously released a series of four shots featuring different babies when daughter Wyatt arrived, inviting fans to guess which one was their baby. Or not.
“Mila and I would like to welcome Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher to the world. May your life be filled with wonder, love, laughter, health, happiness, curiosity, and privacy. Can you guess which one is ours, or does it really matter? All babies are cute,” he posted on A Plus, after Wyatt made her entrance.
It’s obvious the couple are acutely aware that the combination of high-profile parents and carefree childhood can be difficult to navigate, and are keen for their kids to grow up away from the spotlight and unrelenting scrutiny of the press.
Kutcher has long been an advocate for parents and children’s rights.
He’s campaigned against child sex trafficking with then-wife, Demi Moore and recently drew attention to the lack of public baby-changing facilities available to men in the US, with a call to arms for more dad-accessible change tables.
“There are NEVER diaper changing stations in men’s public restrooms. The first public men’s room that I go into that has one gets a free shout out on my FB page! #BeTheChange” the star posted.
We’re excited to hear about this new arrival and wish Mila and Ashton many, many happy nappy changes in the coming years.
Welcome baby Dimitri!
