He might be the highest paid actor on television, but Ashton Kutcher is still a traditional guy. Before proposing to Mila Kunis with that gorgeous, round-cut diamond engagement ring, Kutcher reportedly got the approval from her father Mark first.

"He talked with Mila's dad around Christmastime," a source tells People. "He asked for Mark's blessing to marry her. It was important to Ashton to be respectful and traditional. This is the real thing for him and he wants to do it all right."

All signs point to a successful man-to-man talk considering Kunis and Kutcher confirmed their engagement late last month. She was spotted out wearing her ring a week later as the two cuddled courtside at a Los Angeles Lakers game, one of their favorite date spots.

We love that Kutcher followed one of the most important wedding customs. Even though the former That 70's Show co-stars have known each other for more than 15 years, involving the bride-to-be's family from day one is a foolproof way to ensure a happy, well-run wedding. Which, for these lovebirds, isn't very far off.

"They don't want to wait," the People source adds of their marriage timeline. "This relationship started on solid ground and everything is working out. They are in it for the long haul, truly."

Before they tie the knot, they have many other exciting things to look forward to, including picking out a wedding dress and Kunis' scheduled appearance on Kutcher's show Two and a Half Men. We can't wait!
