Mila Kunis Is Already Thinking About Baby #3

In a recent interview with Australian podcast The Kyle and Jackie O Show, actress Mila Kunis joked with the hosts that she and husband/former onscreen love interest Ashton Kutcher are planning to raise their kids "poor" despite the fact that mommy and daddy have tons of money, reported People.

"It's so important because we both came from pretty solid poverty backgrounds and grew up very poor and are very much self-made and are very aware of what a dollar is worth," Kunis said.

"It's a matter of teaching them from a very early age that, you know, 'Mommy and Daddy may have a dollar, but you're poor ... You are very poor, you have nothing. Mommy and Daddy have a bank account.'"

Kunis and Kutcher have one child, a daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, and another on the way. It's chill that their respective experiences at both ends of the massive American class disparity have given the two celebs some perspective, but let's be real, inherited wealth and privilege are as real as cash in your pocket.

In a country that is now "the most unequal of all Western nations," according to a 2015 report from the Scientific American, rich people raising their kids poor is about as possible as dolphins raising their babies to be chipmunks.

Kunis is clearly joking, of course, and it's seriously unlikely that she and Kutcher will deny their kids a cut of that sweet, sweet That 70s Show money, but maybe they're serious about raising children to be aware of the massive problem of income inequality in the U.S. — in which case, go forth in glory, Kunis-Kutcher family.
