It’s no secret that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are one of our favorite celebrity couples ever. They usually keep things pretty low-key when it comes to talking about their relationship, but Ashton just paid tribute to Mila and their kids in the sweetest speech over the weekend, and we’re swooning.
Ashton took the stage in his native Iowa to receive the Pillar of Character Award and gave the most emotional, heartwarming speech, being sure to shout out his lady love, and you’re gonna need the tissues for this one. Ashton teared up when talking about Mila and their two children.
In the 16-minute speech, Ashton joked about his own questionable character, saying he was probably the first person to receive a role model award “who had a deferred judgment for a felony burglary for trying to break into his high school” at 18, got “pulled over by a state trooper while tripping on mushrooms,” and had his “name splashed across every gossip magazine as an adulterer, like, five years ago.”
But then, Ashton switched to a more serious tone, saying;
“[…] This award is for you. It is for my family, it’s for all four of my parents, it’s for my wife, who kicks my ass on character every day.”
“I’m telling you, this morning, I woke up and she kicked my ass on character. I thought I was awesome because I got up early and helped with the kids before she woke up and I let her sleep a little bit and then she’s like, ‘Well, now you’re gonna act tired? I do it every day.’ But it was a character moment, right? Because she’s right!”
We will forever love these two for keeping it real about parenting, and love how supportive Ashton is of Mila. Props, guys!
