The couple, who are rarely photographed together at public outings, posed for the camera at Tuesday night's Lakers game


Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher enjoyed some child-free fun Tuesday.

Hours after The Ranch actor, 40, sent the Internet into a frenzy by sharing his phone number on Twitter, Kutcher and Kunis, 35, stepped out for a rare public outing.

The pair left their two kids — Wyatt Isabelle, 4, and Dimitri Portwood, 2 — at home and sat courtside at a Los Angeles Lakers basketball game, where they smiled for the camera and even snapped a sweet selfie together.

For their night out, Kutcher wore a black V-neck underneath a brown tweed sport coat, jeans, and an orange LA Dodgers hat. Meanwhile, Kunis, who also kept things casual, opted for a gray ruffle-sleeved shirt, jeans, and converse sneakers.

In their cute selfie, captured by a fan account, Kutcher leaned in towards his smiling wife and snapped the photo, which featured the opposing team, the Philadelphia 76ers, in a huddle nearby.

Besides smiling for photographers and taking a selfie of their own, the couple was spotted on NBA’s Twitter account giggling on the jumbo-cam.

While the parents appeared to be enjoying their relaxing night out, things weren’t so calm for Kutcher earlier on Tuesday.

In a now-deleted tweet, the actor shared his phone number telling fans, “I miss having a real connection w/ real people. My Community.”

He shared, “From now on you can just text me. I won’t be able to respond to everyone but at least we can be real w/ each other & I can share the unedited latest & greatest in my world.”

Kutcher, who was one of the early users of Twitter, added his phone number and said, “Yes this is my#” in case anyone had doubts.”

The actor included a GIF of himself saying, “You are the fabric of who we are, and we love you!”

A few hours later, he deleted the tweet but explained he was bombarded with messages in a subsequent tweet, writing, “I will repost soon… sms is a fragile beast.”

A representative for the star did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Kutcher, a notable prankster from his days on Punk’d, loves to delight his friends and fans.

In December, the actor, along with his wife, gifted Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell a hilarious shower curtain with a giant photo of themselves on it.

“What a generous Christmas gift from the Kunis-Kutcher family,” Shepard, 43, jokingly captioned the shot. “A beautiful shower curtain for the attic(t) bathroom!”

Kutcher co-created his popular pranking show Punk’d in 2003 which followed the star as he played jokes on celebrities.
