Mila Kunis Reveals Her Painful Birth Plan & Proves Ashton is the Perfect Partner

When it comes to what name they're planning on giving their baby girl, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher have one in mind (and we bet it's super cute) but they're keeping quiet about it. Oh well -- we can't have everything! Lucky for us, Mila was more than happy to open up on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and give us lots of other juicy pregnancy, baby, and engagement tidbits.

For example: what kind of birth plan do you think Mila has in mind? Perhaps a cushy one -- maybe a planned C-section and tummy tuck? Nope, guess again!

The 30-year-old actress has revealed that she is ready to take the pain and try for a natural birth in a hospital setting. It sounds like she and Ashton are going to use a midwife to help them through the birth, but that -- unless there's an emergency -- she's going through with it without an epidural.

Brave girl! She certainly gives an interesting reason for choosing this plan: Mila says she "did this" to herself and that she might as well "do it right." Oh lord, I'm worried her words are going to make some women angry, but I get what she's trying to say. As a mom who experienced two births -- one with and one without drugs -- I don't believe there's any shame in seeking pain relief while in labor. But Mila's got a point, too: our bodies were made to give birth naturally, and she's willing to give it a shot.

Okay, let's move on to less controversial topics, shall we?

Like this one: apparently, Ashton is such an amazing partner that he filled their fridge with weird foods like pickles, sauerkraut, and anchovies because he assumed his beloved would have cravings one day. And he was right! She is all about the sauerkraut, which -- fortunately for her -- contains way fewer calories than other foods we love while preggers, like hot fudge and banana splits.

Ashton is also on board with Mila's cultural background and has been taking Russian language lessons twice weekly for the past 6 months. So, it's safe to say baby Kutcher will be a bilingual cutie pie.

It sounds like Mila is having a wonderful pregnancy so far and has a sweet, loving partner who is supporting her throughout it. Good for them!

What do you think about Mila's attitude toward giving birth without drugs? What sweet things did your partner do for you during your pregnancy?

If she wants to try a natural birth without drugs, by all means go for it. I'm fixing to be a first time mom in June and I'm going into it trying to do it without pain medication, but I'm certainly not above asking for help if I need it. If I get to the point where I can't relax between contractions and am just stalling my own labor, then I will get an epidural and not feel an ounce of guilt about it.

I think the language classes are a such a wonderful idea. Instead of keeping himself out of it or asking her not to teach her Russian he wants to be able to join in and support it. I know so many bilingual couples that don't do this.

I'm thrilled she's opting to try without drugs, to many hollywood women are "to posh to push" these days and that does nothing to encourage other women to have confidence in themselves going through childbirth. 

I'll be going on my third natural childbirth and thats the current plan, but I definetly won't be ashamed if for whatever reason drugs are required after I've tried the natural route.

I have never given birth, but I am the type who, at least intellectually, am attracted to the idea of natural birth. Not sure if i would carry through, however;-) (By the way, love the phrase, "too posh to push!") As for sweet things done by partners: Sounds as if Ashton is setting a high bar for other daddies-to-be. Well done, these two.

I gave birth several years ago, before epidurals were the norm. I didn't have any drugs or meds. I'm glad I did it that way. The minute your baby is born, you feel like you could do anything, the "high" you feel. Women have been birthing babies this way for thousands of years. I'm glad I wasn't numb and felt it all like the earth mother I am!!!

I had my 3rd child in 2012 and had no pain killers at all. IM so happy I went in that direction my labor went faster and much smoother. But I'm all for asking for relief if needed. I did with my first 2 :)

I always find it funny how women whove never given birth are so excited about going drug free. Just see what its about first, then decide. With or without, it doesnt make a difference at the end. You dont get a special gold star for going drug free. Ive done 2 with epidural, one without because he came too fast. If I had to give birth again, id have an epidural. I dont enjoy being in pain, even in birthing pain. Each their own

I have two kids. One with drugs the other without. GO FOR IT. I didn't think i could handle the pain with my first so i did the drug route. My youngest didn't give me the chance. It was wonderful painful but wonderful. Ashton thanks for being there for her

I did all 3 of my boys naturally without epidurals. Although I speak of it proudly, my reason for no epidural is way worse than some women just choosing to feel as less pain as possible. I'm actually more scared of a giant needle in my back than I am of pushing a human head out of me. (I know...makes no sense right?)

Oh, yeah, he'll be a dandy partner til she discovers he's been knocking boots with someone else while she's fat and grumpy.
