Now for the cutest news you’ve heard all day: before he popped the question, Ashton Kutcher asked Mila Kunis’s dad for her hand in marriage.
We know, we know. Ashton totally doesn’t sound like the kind of guy who would succumb to traditions like that — after all, marriage definitely doesn’t work like it did when asking for the father’s permission was the norm. But for Ashton, it was out of the respect he has for Mila’s father… and it’s better to get off on the right foot with the family of his future wife, right?
“He talked with Mila’s dad around Christmas time,” a close friend of Ashton’s shared with 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.”
So sweet! And obviously, Mark said yes. But who wouldn’t want Ashton Kutcher as a son-in-law?
And despite the fact that earlier reports have said that Ashton and Mila are in no rush to get married right away, the source has insisted that the couple (and former That 70s Show co-stars) is ready to get that knot tied.
“They don’t want to wait,” the friend said. “This relationship started on solid ground and everything is working out. They are in it for the long haul, truly.”
So are we. We think chances are good that Mila and Ashton are forever — and that their future babies will be ridiculously good looking.
