Wyatt comes first! Mila Kunis‘ lifestyle drastically changed when she and Ashton Kutcher welcomed their daughter, now 19 months, in 2014 — and in the best way possible. The Bad Moms actress opened up about motherhood during a new interview on Monday, May 2.

“I reprioritized my life, in all honesty. I traveled through all my twenties and I was very selfish … in a good way, not in a way I regret. And I think having a kid made me realize how incredibly selfless I want to be,” Kunis, 32, explained to Entertainment Tonight.

“It does change the way you think and look at life. I would never trade it for the world,” she continued. “But I know that when we decided to have a kid, we were ready to no longer be selfish. Or at least start the process, because innately, as humans, we are really selfish people.”

Kunis’ sleeping habits have also changed since becoming a mom. “I can let loose as much as I want, but at 6:45 in the morning she’s awake, so so am I. They don’t care that I let loose the night before … Honestly, I don’t know what letting loose means, probably not going to sleep at 9:30,” she told ET. “[With parenthood] you learn how to be a great partner and great wife and a great woman and be yourself and still be responsible for you know, a living child. It’s definitely a learning process.”

Kunis and Kutcher, 38, first met on the set of That ’70s Show in 1998. The two remained close and began dating in 2012. They became first-time parents in October 2014 and married the following year.

Back in 2013, the Ukrainian-born star suggested that she would take a break from acting when she had a family. “I want to be a present mom. When I was growing up both my mom and dad worked full-time. I guess the only thing I can say about that is they worked full-time in one location. I’m never in the same place for more than two months. How am I ever going to have a family like that? You have to make compromises,” she told Playboy at the time.

She added: “If that means I do one movie a year, if people still want to see me and hire me and I don’t suck by that point, great. But my only source of happiness can’t be dependent on something so fickle. And I find this industry to be incredibly fickle.”
