Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher announced the name of their newborn son on A Plus (a digital media platform which counts Kutcher as an investor) Friday afternoon. The new baby’s name is Dimitri Portwood Kutcher, and he was born weighing 8 pounds and 15 ounces, according to the announcement.
Axar.az reports citing to Vanity Fair.
Kutcher and Kunis appear to have released the information as a proactive way of getting privacy. Kutcher told the site, “We'd like to allow our kids to make their own choices on whether to have a life in the public eye or not.”
A representative for Mila Kunis confirmed to Vanity Fair that the actress gave birth to a son on Wednesday, November 30. This is the second baby for both Kunis and her husband, Ashton Kutcher. The famously low-key pair kept the news of their son’s birth under the radar, just as they did their secret wedding last summer. If this new addition to the Kutcher-Kunis family is anything like his sister, Wyatt, he will be far cooler than any of us in no time. “She likes to ‘Whip/Nae Nae,’ too,” Kutcher said of his young daughter in an interview when she was only a little over one years old. “She’s just whippin’ and whippin’ and nae nae’ing; mama taught her that.”
No word yet on what the couple has decided to name their first son, but we know it’s not Hawkeye. That’s what Kutcher wanted. “There was a rallying cry from a collective for Hawkeye,” the Iowa native told Conan O’Brien earlier this month. In addition to being an homage to the University of Iowa, Kutcher reasoned that naming their kid after a famous TV doctor—Alan Alda’s MASH character—might inspire his kid to go into the medical profession. But according to her husband, Kunis shot down the idea.
And while Kunis and Kutcher are fairly private when it comes to these major life events, they are not at all shy about addressing the pitfalls of modern parenting. Kunis, who was hilariously candid about her first pregnancy on Jimmy Kimmel Live!, recently spoke out about the judgment she received when breastfeeding her daughter in public. “That’s what I chose to do,” she told Vanity Fair, “but I think it’s unfortunate that people are so hard on women who choose to do it and do it in public. In the States and in our culture, we sexualize the breast so much that there’s an aspect of it that people just don’t know how to wrap their head around the idea of showing your breast in public. But I respect the opinions on both sides. If it’s not for you, don’t look.” Odds are she’ll care even less about other people’s opinions when it comes to taking care of baby number two.
