Mila Kunis Talks Motherhood

She may be starring in the new comedy, Bad Moms, but Mila Kunis seems like a pretty fierce mama bear if you ask us! This past year has brought some huge changes for Kunis. She's the mom of 19-month-old Wyatt Isabelle and almost a year ago, the actress said "I do" to Ashton Kutcher in a super secretive garden wedding. And while we've only ever seen a few blurry photos of her adorable little one (but still have yet to see any of her and Kutcher's hush-hush nuptials!), we love to hear any little tidbits from Kunis' new life as a wife and mother. Recently, Kunis opened up about how motherhood has changed her — for the better, of course!

Brides-to-be sometimes (keyword: sometimes) can earn a pass for a bit of occasional selfishness when it comes to wedding planning. Sure, splurge a little on the wedding dress... Why not go for the larger centerpieces? But, as the actress is now learning, selfishness is certainly a harder role to pull off as a parent. "I reprioritized my life, in all honesty," Kunis shared with Entertainment Tonight during her Bad Moms press junket. "I traveled through all my 20's 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." Bad mom? Definitely not!

"It does change the way you think and look at life," Kunis further explained. "I would never trade it for the world." The Black Swan actress even gave us a little insight to how her hubby is handling parenthood. "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," said Kunis.

"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," she concluded. "It's definitely a learning process."

It may be a learning process, but it sounds like Kunis' new life is shaping up to be just as perfect as her secret garden wedding. Well, we assume so. (Did we mention how we still haven't seen any photos?! Oh well, in the meantime we'll just gawk at adorable pics of baby Wyatt...)
