Ashton ‘asks Mila’s dad for wedding blessing’

Ashton Kutcher

Ashton Kutcher was apparently determined to be “respectful and traditional” when proposing to Mila Kunis.

The two stars recently got engaged, with Mila spotted out wearing a large diamond ring in February. Ashton apparently spoke to her father before popping the question, setting time aside for the conversation late last year.

“He talked with Mila’s dad around Christmas time,” an insider told People. “He asked for Mark’s blessing to marry her. It was important to Ashton to be respectful and traditional. This is the real thing for him and he wants to do it all right.”

Despite recent rumors that the pair are in no hurry to walk down the aisle, it’s been claimed they will tie the knot in 2014. It was thought they saw no need to speed up plans, but they apparently now can’t wait to be man and wife.

“They don’t want to wait,” the insider explained. “This relationship started on solid ground and everything is working out. They are in it for the long haul, truly.”

Ashton and Mila have been friends for many years, having starred alongside each other on That ’70s Show. Speculation they were dating began in early 2012, after the breakdown of Ashton’s marriage to Demi Moore following allegations he was unfaithful.

Rumors they were planning to wed reached fever pitch at the end of last year, with sources insisting the pair had already discussed whether they wanted to settle down.

Friends of the pair claim it is the similarities in their outlook on life which makes their relationship thrive.

“Ashton loves to travel and so does Mila, so they have seen a lot of new places and both are charged at the idea of doing it more, even living part-time abroad,” a source has explained. “They seem to have a lot in common, and that helps keep a relationship strong.”
