The Two and a Half Men star, 36, stopped by The Talk on Wednesday, Oct. 29, and spoke about parenting his daughter, whom he and Kunis, 31, welcomed on Oct. 1.
“I kind of have like, a hero complex a little bit,” Kutcher told the panel on The Talk. “I’m somebody’s hero now. It fulfills every bit of your ego when the kid starts to cry and you’re like, ‘Oh, I got this,’ and you take it, and suddenly the child calms down, and you’re like, ‘Oh yeah!’ You feel like you’re like a baby whisperer.”
Wyatt is the first child for the former That ’70s Show stars, who got engaged in February 2014 after almost two years together.
“The whole thing is pretty exceptional,” Kutcher continued about becoming a new parent. “We decided right away that we didn’t want to have a nanny or a night nurse or anything, and we’re lucky enough that we have jobs that we can afford to spend time and be at home, or take time off if we need to.”
Kunis and Kutcher took some of this time off to prepare for their bundle of joy, doing extensive research before they welcomed their new addition.
“Everybody says when you get a child, they don’t come with an owner’s manual, but that’s kinda not true because Google’s kind of like an owner’s manual,” the Jobs actor said on The Talk. “You can pretty much Google anything and it’s there. For me, I go to my partner, you know? I talk to Mila, and we make choices. We did a lot of research — we both did like, a lot of research.”
“I’d been a parent to teenage girls before in my life, and so I have experience with girls, and experience with that like, from age 7 to 25,” Kutcher continued, referencing the eight years that he was married to Demi Moore, who is the mother to three daughters from her previous marriage to Bruce Willis. “But infants, it was like a whole new thing. So, we really started studying what it is to take care of a baby and how you do it, and the whole thing. It’s all on Google, it’s kinda there.”
