“The other day, someone asked me how far along I was and I was like, ‘I have no idea,’ ” said Kunis, who is already mom to 21-month-old daughter Wyatt. “I was like, I can tell you when I’m due, and then I can do the math backwards.”
But during her first pregnancy, she knew all the details.
“With [my first pregnancy], I could tell you precisely what she was developing, and what stage it was … but [with] the second one, I’m running after a toddler or I’m working, so I’m like, ‘Oh that’s right, I’m pregnant,’ ” she shared.
Admitting she “can eat eggs all day long,” there’s one thing the pregnant actress can’t handle.
“I can’t eat meat. It’ll look delicious to me, and I’ll take a bite of it and I’ll be like, ‘Uh-uh. Can’t do it,’ ” she dished.
In terms of taking on new roles now that she’s a mom, it has to be a passion project.
“[This is] the first time that I’ve ever left my daughter for three days. It’s rough,” admitted the expectant mom. “I have a thing called Nest Cam in my family room, so I totally spy on my kid eating breakfast. And then I talk to her and she thinks Mommy lives in a camera, which is frightening and horrible anyway. But it’s rough. It’s hard being away from your kid.”
Earlier on the Today show, Kunis got real about juggling career and motherhood.
“[When] I got pregnant with Wyatt, I put so much pressure on myself to think about how I’m going to balance work and life. And I realize it’s impossible. And I think it literally ate me alive,” she shared. “No one put the pressure on me — I just did it fully to myself.”
Thankfully, she has a supportive partner in life.
“He’s an incredible father — there’s not even a question,” she gushed of Kutcher. “Some men, and it’s okay, they take a little bit of time to adapt to having a baby and feel comfortable. Wyatt came out and two seconds later he had it down. He was swaddling and changing diapers.”
