Tuesday, Mila Kunis appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with an important public service announcement to all expectant fathers: Stop saying “We’re Pregnant!”
Mila Kunis and Jimmy Kimmel engaged in small talk about Kunis’ pregnancy with Ashton Kutcher’s child. Unlike the sitcom couple Jackie and Kelso, the real-life couple appears very happy together. Jackie fans were rewarded Tuesday, though, when the pregnant actress went off on a dramatic rant that was reminiscent of the explosive tirades made by Mila’s character on That ’70s Show. Kimmel set up the sketch:
“My wife and I are pregnant,” Jimmy Kimmel tells Mila Kunis. “We’re having a baby very soon as well.”
Mila scoffs at Kimmel, “Oh, you both are — are having a baby?”
“Yeah,” Kimmel confirms.
“You and your wife are pregnant?”
Kimmel reiterates, “Yeah.”
Kunis removes her microphone from her shirt, grabs a microphone from behind her. Mila aggressively steps towards stage right to talk about something many pregnant women have been saying for years:
“Hi. I’m Mila Kunis with a very special message for all you soon-to-be fathers: Stop saying, ‘We’re pregnant.’ You’re not pregnant. Do you have to squeeze a watermelon-sized person out of your lady-hole? No. Are you crying in your car alone listening to a stupid Bette Midler song?! No. When you wake up and throw up, is it because you’re nurturing a human life? No. It’s because you had too many shots of tequila. Do you know how many shots of tequila we had?! None. Because we can’t have shots of tequila. We can’t have anything! Because we’ve got your little love-goblin growing inside of us. All you did was roll over and fall asleep.”
The curtain opens up, and a pack of pregnant moms walk up behind Mila, as she declares to Kimmel and the expectant fathers of the world, “You’re not pregnant.” In unison, the women, holding ice cream -or perhaps frozen yogurt- declare, “We are!” The monologue was a funny sketch that had the crowd roaring with laughter, but it prompted a battle of the sexes after the Jimmy Kimmel Live YouTube channel posted the clip.
In response, the top comment on the YouTube video retorts, “This is a fine example that men suffer just as much during a pregnancy… we suffer 9 months of pure mental anguish as a pin cushion and slave.”
In reality, Mila’s pregnancy seems to be going very well, and Ashton has tried to make her pregnancy easier. Kutcher reportedly stocked a fridge with food items preemptively. “He assumed that I was gonna have goofy cravings, so he stocked our secondary fridge with weird food,” Mila explained in US Weekly. “Just, like, pickles and sauerkraut, or, like anchovies and ice creams, just in case at one point during this pregnancy I’d be like, ‘I really want something.’”
Mila Kunis’ stunt on Jimmy Kimmel Live! brought up a good question though: When fathers say, “We’re pregnant,” do you find it endearing or annoying?
