Mila Kunis on Childbirth Plans and Her Oddly Secret Engagement [Video]

Mila Kunis talked with Ellen DeGeneres during a Mother’s Day show, where she revealed that she is expecting a child with fiance Ashton Kutcher.

After month of speculation, the 30-year-old “That ’70s Show” actress  confirmed her pregnancy for the first time and opened up about her future husband in her interview with Ellen DeGeneres. Sitting down to talk on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Mila wore a flowy white dress with a V-neck design.

The “Black Swan” beauty revealed that she and Kutcher, 36, were able to keep their growing family and wedding plans under wraps “for a very long time,” as the couple declined to make a public announcement about their engagement, as well childbirth plans.

Their engagement reports bubbled up at the end of February, with the baby rumors following toward the end of May. Kunis is clearly past the point of hiding anything now.

“We were able to keep (our engagement) private for two months without anybody knowing,” Kunis said. “I think everybody assumed we’d been engaged for so long, that I was wearing the ring in public for two months and nobody commented on it.”

The couple was impressed the baby news remained a secret for so long, and Kunis is now making plans for her big day – and she is adamant she wants a natural delivery.

“We watched a couple of documentaries and we looked into the… midwife aspect of it and things, and spoke to my OB/GYN and realized that the hospital that I’m going to be laboring in does a midwife, you know, doula type of thing,” Kunis told Ellen DeGeneres about her plans with Kutcher. “So I’m gonna do it as all-natural as I possibly can unless there’s an emergency or something.” 

Mila went on to explain that she and Ashton will be expecting the baby later this year, but would not give a specific due date or reveal the sex of their child. 

She admitted that the couple already have a name picked out and that because Mila is bilingual, Ashton is now taking Russian lessons twice a week to learn. The actress also shared that she’s having obscene cravings for vinegar-based food.

“I eat sauerkraut all day long,” she admitted.”This is the worst craving to have, because sauerkraut smells and every time you open up the jar, it just reaks in the whole kitchen,” she said, adding that she also craves pickles. “So, vinegar based food is what I’m craving, I guess.”

 To the delight of Ellen’s studio audience, Kunis also said Kutcher has been more than helpful in accommodating her peculiar gastronomical requirements.

“He assumed that I was going to have goofy cravings,” she said. “So he stocked our secondary fridge with weird food. Just, like, pickles and sauerkraut, or like anchovies and ice creams. Just in case at one point during the pregnancy I’d be like, ‘I really want something!’ ”

And as fate would have it, the fridge recently served its purpose.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God, I need a pickle’,” said Kunis. “It was just the weirdest thing. I needed this pickle and he was like, ‘Hold on a second’ and disappeared in the backyard and came back with the most amazing pickle of all time.”
