The Kutchers are all-in when caring for Wyatt

While many in Hollywood have often opted to hire nannies to care for their celebrity newborns while they work long hours in studio or on set, the standard practice seems to be making a 180 among parental newbies like Ashton Kutcher and it-girl Mila Kunis.

Kutcher told talk show host Ellen DeGeneres in December the two had decided to go nanny-free (at least for now), choosing to care for their now-four-month-old daughter Wyatt strictly on their own.

“We just want to know our kid,” said Kutcher, quite pleased that he has the freedom to choose. “We want to be the people that know what to do when the baby’s crying to make the baby not cry anymore. We want to know, like, when she makes a little face or something, we want to be emotionally in touch with her. And I think the only way to do that is by being the one who’s there.”

For those who have watched his character Walden Schmidt on the CBS hit comedy Two and a Half Men, which is coming to an end of its run in two weeks, life either seems to be imitating art or vice versa: the character just adopted a young boy.
