It’s official that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are expecting a baby boy as a new addition to their perfect little family. Wyatt, the couple’s 2-year-old daughter, will have a baby brother very soon, and the big question now is, when is the due date and what will the star parents name the little bundle of joy?
One of those questions has reportedly been answered, well, to Kelly Ripa at least. While Ashton Kutcher co-hosted Live! on Friday morning, Kelly asked Ashton about name selection for their son. Ashton responded as would be expected, stating that he and Mila have chosen a name but are keeping hushed on the subject because they really don’t want other people’s opinions.

People shares the exchange between Kelly and Ashton on the baby name topic.
“Kutcher, who co-hosted Live! with Ripa on Friday, revealed that he and his wife have ‘dialed in’ on a name for their baby boy — but they’re keeping it to themselves for now. ‘You don’t want everyone else’s opinion on the name’ he explained.”
After Kelly worked her magic and prodded a bit for Kutcher to let the secret out, she finally was able to get the actor to supposedly whisper the baby’s name in her ear, and stated that when the baby is born and the name is made public, she will do nothing but praise it.

Kutcher shared that he and Mila have already got some high hopes for their “little hombre,” as the star put it, saying that they practice saying his name following words like president and football star.
When it comes to the manner Mila, 33, and Ashton, 38, came up with the name for their newest little one, he describes the process that seems to work for the pair.
“I do a thing, Mila calls it ‘name tourettes,’ because when we get in the naming process she hates every name I come up with,” Kutcher explained. “So I just start rattling off … she hates it, but eventually both times I’ve landed on the name with ‘name tourettes.’ “
Kutcher went on to share that preparing for baby No. 2 has been much different than how he and Mila prepared for baby Wyatt, seeing as they have been so busy taking care of Wyatt that they are barely left time to “refresh” their minds about prepping to welcome their little boy.
“The first one, I was basically a doula, I was reading all the books and going crazy,” he detailed, adding, “This one, I’ve got no idea. It’s number two, I’m running around with Wyatt all day long, so I haven’t looked at the book. I haven’t even refreshed.”
It is no surprise that Ashton and Mila are not looking to share their son’s name with anyone just yet, seeing as the two are very private about their little one Wyatt and were very strict about no photographers snapping pics of her, from the time she was born. The happy couple have shared on numerous occasions that they love parenting even though there are many challenges that go along with the role.
While promoting her film Bad Moms, Kunis spoke about the struggles that are often presented to new parents, one challenge being the feeling of competition and comparison between mothers. Pop Sugar shares words spoken by the beauty on the subject.
“It’s the competitive energy that is so destructive. It’s just like you said — we’re all in it together. You only are a mommy in this way for such a brief amount of time anyway that you don’t wanna look back and be like, ‘Why did I care about that stupid nonsense?'”
