Ashton Kutcher appeared on NBC's Late Night Thursday and revealed that his 2-year-old daughter is becoming a linguist. "She can speak and understand English. She can speak and understand Spanish," he said. "She can understand Russian, but she can't really speak it yet."
Mila Kunis' family emigrated from Russia to the United States when she was a child, though they still speak in their native tongue often. "Mila's grandparents basically only speak Russian, so I took like six months of Russian to understand what they were saying. Russian is a very aggressive language. It doesn't matter what you say, it sounds like you're yelling...Everything sounds really aggressive. I thought that they really didn't like me. I thought that they were really upset," he said. "I learned it just so I could understand what everyone was saying, and it turns out they were just like, 'We love you so much!' Now I got it. Now I know. They love me!"
Ashton needs to be careful about what he says around Wyatt, though.
When she was about 18 months old, the family's new dog, Ricky, had an accident. "I'm getting ready in the morning and Mila's like, 'Oh, Ricky peed in the stairwell.' I'm like, 'F--k, Ricky!'" Ashton recalled. "I'm walking and my daughter's right behind me, and all of a sudden I just hear, 'F--k, Ricky!' I'm like, 'No, no, no! Papa didn't say that. Papa said fox! Papa said fox! Ricky's like a wily fox.'" At first, Ashton thought he had tricked Wyatt. Crisis averted! But after Wyatt saw a hole the dog had chewed in the carpet, the actor overheard her say, "F--k, Ricky!" again. "I think I've got her convinced that it's 'fox' now," Ashton promised. "I'm pretty sure she thinks its 'fox.'"
Ashton will need to bite his tongue a little longer, as he's "eight weeks away" from welcoming a baby boy. "I was hoping for a girl—because first of all, our first girl is unbelievable—but also I figured if we had a girl second she might give me one more shot to have a boy. Now I don't know. It's even money! She might cut me off. I want like 12 of them," Ashton told host Seth Meyers of his desire to have a big family with Mila. "I don't know. We haven't discussed it yet. We're not into it, and so this isn't a tabloid argument at all. We're very excited and very happy."
