We got to sit down with聽Mila Kunis recently and pick her brain about baby names (in case you didn鈥檛 already know, the聽Bad Moms聽star is expecting baby number two聽with BFF-turned-husband Ashton Kutcher). The couple clearly knows how to bequeath the perfect moniker 鈥 their little girl Wyatt Isabelle will be turning two in October. Mila revealed how she and Ashton named their kiddos 鈥 and yes, they鈥檝e already picked out a name for the bun in the oven.


When it comes to choosing a baby name, most parents start with a couple rules of thumb. At least, that鈥檚 what Mila pictures.聽鈥What鈥檚 gonna sound good with the last name?鈥 she imagines parents-to-be asking.聽鈥What鈥檚 not gonna get my kid picked on? I hope that鈥檚 what they鈥檙e thinking,鈥 Mila聽says. Then, she adds with a dry laugh, 鈥淎lthough there are some names where I鈥檓 like, 鈥榃hat聽were聽you thinking? Clearly, you weren鈥檛.'鈥

When it came to naming Wyatt and baby number two, she and Ashton had a game plan. 鈥淸It was] just something that felt right. For us, picking a baby name was very much [we] wanted something personal in one element 鈥 whether that鈥檚 the middle name or the first name 鈥 and then [we] just wanted it to fit the energy of the baby,鈥 she tells us.


Timing AND patience were crucial to the process, too. 鈥淔or us, it was always halfway through the pregnancy. We would always go through hundreds and hundreds of names,鈥 she says. But when the stars align, it just works. 鈥淔or both the kids, we knew instantly,鈥 Mila says. 鈥淚t was never a question.鈥澛燳ep, you heard it here first: Mila and Ashton already have a baby name picked out for their second child. But Mila鈥檚 not spilling any secrets.

鈥淎lways [keep it a] secret,鈥 Mila says emphatically, 鈥渂ecause just in case something happens and we change our minds, we realized people start embroidering things聽way聽too fast. We keep it a secret from everybody just in case, so we don鈥檛 get a blanket embroidered with the wrong name.鈥
