You know those rich kids who feel entitled because they come from money? Well, that’s not going to happen to Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s kids.
How, yet their parents are among Hollywood’s power couples, and have made some mad money over the years? Here’s how –they simply don’t plan to leave them any! Sounds harsh on the surface, but it’s actually pretty good parenting.
Kutcher and Kunis became fast friends while co-starring in That ’70s Show, and despite the sitcom’s curtains finally closing, their relationship continued to blossom.
It culminated in a 2015 wedding, and the two have been happily married ever since, raising a family while at it. Kunis is now a mother of two; a daughter, 4-year-old Wyatt and a son, 2-year-old Dimitri.
In her exploits as an actress, Mila has accumulated an estimated $55 million net worth. Her husband, who just so happens to be a jack of all trades has done even better, and he’s reportedly worth at least $200 million.
In addition to being an actor, Kutcher is a product engineer and a venture capitalist. Remember when his Uber investment paid off handsomely?
A combined $255 million, a sum that will undoubtedly grow over time, is quite the inheritance, don’t you think? Unfortunately, Wyatt and Dimitri aren’t that lucky.
Appearing on close friend Dax Shepard’s podcast, Kutcher revealed that as a couple, they had no intention of just handing over money to their kids.
They figured that there’d be those who need it more, no wonder a significant portion of their wealth will go to charity.
It came out quite clearly that one of the fears the parents have is raising entitled kids, and they feel that this move will keep them from being spoiled.
However, it’s not like the kids now live like paupers. In fact, Kutcher has admitted that they’re leading quite the privileged life, they just aren’t old enough to figure that out yet.
What’s more, the parents are keen on ensuring that their children make something of themselves, with Kutcher revealing that they’ll fund whatever business idea or project they may come up with later in life. They will, however, still expect a return on their investment. Talk of strict parents!
Same School of Thought
Kunis, speaking to Entertainment Tonight, echoed her husband’s sentiments, saying that she didn’t want her kids just living off their parents’ wealth. That sounds as good parenting advice as any don’t you think?
Talking of a privileged life, Dimitri is really enjoying it. Kutcher revealed that to avoid sleepless nights, they got the kid a $1,100 rocking crib that soothes him to sleep if he chances to wake up. The kid may not know it, but you bet Mila Kunis thanks the heavens for that Roco-crib.
The couple also loves taking their kids out for lunch and other pleasantries, much to the delight of paparazzi who can’t seem to get enough of them.
And despite the couple’s public display of affection towards each other and their children, tabloids never shy away from labeling their union an unhappy one. Luckily, such claims never faze them. In fact, they upload satirizing videos of break-ups instead.
