Mila Kunis is so certain of what she wants for her pregnancy and baby delivery that you’ll wish that she taught some sort of decision-making class. For a person like myself who, if given the chance, could spend a full hour choosing a vending machine snack, this would be the single most useful class ever. On the first day, she’d teach us precisely how to tell every expecting father who says, “We’re pregnant” to shut all the way up, and it’d only get better from there. Because, after reading her interview in the July issue of Marie Claire, I’m convinced that this is one lady who decides a thing and stands her ground about it. So, consider me all the way delighted.
In the issue, for which Mila is the cover
girl goddess, she proves that she’s got a good majority of the answers. And not in a snotty, know-it-all sort of way. But more like in an, “This is my life and I’m fully in charge of it” way.
“Two people are allowed in my delivery room. My doctor and my significant other. And he is staying above the action. He’ll be head to head. Not head to vag. Unless he wants to risk his life and see. But I wouldn’t if I were him. I highly doubt he wants to see that being ripped apart and shredded. Because it will be shredded. It’s just a matter of how badly.”
UM. Is anyone else feeling secondhand labor pains right now or am I the only one? Although, she makes a valid point because childbirth is gross-looking. And don’t believe anyone who tells you otherwise. But, I suppose, what’s even more gross is raising little entitled jerks which, if all goes according to Mila’s grand plan, isn’t gonna happen.
“I just don’t want my kids to be assholes. I feel like so many kids nowadays are. Both of us just want to have well-behaved, honest, nice children who people meet and say, ‘That’s a good kid.’”
Plus, aside from declaring that she’ll never in a million years have a clothing line even if all of the world’s clothes were set aflame (my words, not hers), Mila disclosed one other way that she’s been taking charge of her life.
“I was really good at saying no. I decided I was just going to say yes to any opportunity that came, no matter how crazy. And it changed my life.”
Okay, how inspired do you feel after learning that Mila’s decided to live life how they do it movies? Like really live it. Of course, there’s no way to determine the future entirely. But there’s something to be said about a person who has such strong conviction in their choices, especially during a new and potentially terrifying time in their life. And that something is “Damnnn, girl.”
