Mila Kunis Spills on Her Worst Mum Blunder (And It’s Actually A Pretty Big One)

Sophie White

Ah, the old mum blunders…

Completely unavoidable (especially if you’re human) but still it’s reassuring to hear other mums reveal the mistakes they’ve made navigating these hazy, crazy years of sleep deprivation.

In a recent interview with Babble, the Bad Moms actress described preparing to take her daughter to visit dad, Ashton Kutcher, at work. Having packed all the infant essentials into the car, Kunis had already hit the highway before realising that she hadn’t strapped her infant daughter, Wyatt, into her carseat.

“I was like, oh, f**k me,” she revealed. “And I’m on the 101, and she’s just like blah, like fine in her car seat, nothing, no strap whatsoever. And I think I just turned white.”

The actress pulled over to secure her baby and later cried when relating the blunder to Kutcher though a few weeks later she spotted that he had done the exact same thing, which reassured her and made her feel much less alone in the chaos of early parenthood.

Luckily Kunis wasn’t too hard on herself:

“I’m the only mom my daughter is hopefully ever going to know and I’m the best version there is for her,” she said. “I’ve only been a mom for 21 months.”

Kunis is now expecting her second baby, which is sure to make things less chaotic… oh wait.
