Robert Cianflone/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Ashton Kutcher is loving fatherhood so far. The Two and a Half Men star made an appearance Tuesday night on Conan, saying that being a dad is the “best thing on Earth.”
Kutcher said he and his fiancée, Mila Kunis, are not relying on a nanny to help out with one-month-old Wyatt Isabelle because they have the time to spend with their child. He told Conan O’Brien on the TBS late-night show that following Wyatt’s birth he wanted to call his parents and apologize because, he said, “I never knew how much they loved me.”
Kutcher, 36, joked that he knows what will calm down his child when she’s upset, so much so that he’s become a “baby whisperer.” He joked, “I like to give the baby to my friends and let it cry for a second, be like, ‘Let me take care of that.'”
He continued, “Any sort of hero fantasy that I have is completely satiated.”
Kutcher explained that Wyatt was not the name he and Kunis initially had in mind for their baby. He said the first name they chose “didn’t fit the energy” of what they were feeling during the pregnancy. Eventually, the actor said, he felt pressure from Kunis to come up with a new name, so he started to list random objects he spotted, like a sign or a door. Once he uttered the name Wyatt, Kunis liked it, and they went with it.
After that, Kutcher said, they acquired the rights to various URLs that included the name. He exclaimed, “I don’t want a porn site with my daughter’s name on it!”
The couple also set up an email address for Wyatt, which they use to send messages to her that she can read when she’s older.
Kutcher noted that his daughter’s middle name was inspired by Kunis’ grandfather.
As for the family’s Halloween plans, Kutcher stated that he, his wife and his child will dress as the Three Little Pigs, even though he’s not a big fan of the holiday.
Kutcher was on Conan to promote Thursday night’s season premiere of his CBS sitcom. When asked what he thought of former star Charlie Sheen having expressed a desire to return to the show, Kutcher said, “I just kind of stopped listening to things that Charlie Sheen says. Charlie Sheen has become like a parent on Charlie Brown to me. It’s more like, ‘Wa wa wa wa.'”
