Ashton Kutcher has told talk show host Conan O’Brien the story of how he and Mila Kunis chose their baby girl’s name Wyatt.
“We had another name picked out. We got pregnant a couple of weeks after we picked the name but when we were pregnant, the name didn’t fit the energy we were feeling. One night, Mila was like, ‘This is not the name.’ I was like, ‘okay it’s not the name.'”
Good job, Ashton. Pregnant wife = always right. So they had to come up with the right energy-flowing name.
“I had to get the creative juices going, so we were going to a Lakers game, and I got ‘name tourettes’… I just started listing off anything and everything I saw: ‘sign, truck, wall, door…’ She [was] like, ‘Shut up!”‘I said, ‘if you don’t accept my bad ideas, you’ll never accept the good ones.’
(Is that logic logical? Not really. But please continue, Ashton….)
“Then I was like, ‘I’ve got a really dumb idea. What about Wyatt?’ She goes, ‘That’s it.'”
Wyatt’s middle name, Isabelle, was chosen to honour Mila’s family heritage. “We gave her the name Isabelle after Mila’s grandfather, who was Yitzhak.”
They’ve registered the name on all social media and websites. Sounds ridiculous, but when you’re famous, it’s more about security than publicity.
“We immediately went home and reserved all the domain names. We’ve got the Twitter handle – the Instagram – everything you could possibly get – I don’t want a porn site with my daughter’s name!”
She’s one month old, and even has her own email address.
“We write her emails. One day she’ll be able to look at it and see the kinds of things people had to say.”
And are you ready for a pretty cute quote from the 36-year-old first-time Dad?
“It’s unbelievable. It’s the greatest thing on Earth. As soon as this child was born, I immediately wanted to call my parents and just apologise because I never knew how much they loved me.”
“Staying home the first couple of weeks, I’ve learned the little things that will calm down the baby. So I feel like I’m the baby whisperer now. I like to give the baby to my friends and let it cry for a second. Then be like, ‘Let me just take care of that.'”
“I feel like we got a good one. We put her down and she sleeps. We wake up a couple times a night, and that’s it. I feel really blessed.”
And for their first Halloween as a family? “We’re going as the three little pigs. Not my idea, but I’m sucking it up.”
Good idea, Ashton. Mother of newborn = always right.
