Toddlers say the darnedest things — and 21-month-old Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher is no exception.
“When you tell a kid that you have a baby in your belly, they think everyone’s got a baby in their belly, so my daughter will be like, ‘Where’s the baby?’ ” Mila Kunis told Extra on Monday at the N.Y.C. premiere of her new comedy Bad Moms.
And the big sister-to-be doesn’t stop at just asking Mom all the hard-hitting questions.
“She’ll point to her belly, she’ll point to your belly, a stranger’s belly,” Kunis, 32, continues. “So there’s a slight problem because she’s not quite old enough to understand, so she’s like, ‘Everybody has a baby in their belly.’ ”

Aside from the ways being a mom has changed her general outlook on life, the expectant actress also notes that having a solid support system is crucial in a world where she’s juggling parenting and a hectic work schedule.
“Acting is like 17-hour days, it’s not a nine to five,” Kunis says. “Having the script and having the amazing group of women that I worked with [on Bad Moms], besides my husband who is super supportive, it was the greatest experience that made me realize how important it is to be fulfilled as a human being in order to be fulfilled as a mother.”
Though the film, which premieres in theaters July 29, pokes fun at the idea of having to be a “perfect” mother 24/7, Kunis admits that real-life mothering has its scary moments — like the time she forgot one crucial detail while taking a car trip with her daughter.
“I look in my rearview mirror and [Wyatt’s] not strapped in,” she confesses. “I pulled over and I strapped her in … I got to my husband’s work, completely broke down, and started crying.”
