Demi Moore was reportedly one of the “first people” to find out about Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ impending parenthood.
The former That ’70s Show stars are engaged and currently expecting their first child together. Although Ashton’s marriage to Demi ended badly following allegations that he cheated on her, the 36-year-old actor is said to be trying to keep things civil between himself and his ex-wife.
“Demi was one of the first people Ashton called when he found out Mila was expecting his first child,” a source told RadarOnline.
“While that might seem shocking to many given their bitter breakup, it’s just Ashton’s style to inform Demi before the news broke. He was fully aware of how much Mila’s news would affect Demi and wanted to be the one to tell her personally.
“He’s still in denial of how much hurt he’s caused Demi and friends are convinced he’d do anything to salvage a close friendship with Demi despite that.”
Ashton got close to Demi’s three daughters Rumer, Tallulah and Scout – who she has with former spouse Bruce Willis – during their marriage, which officially ended in November last year. While Mila only confirmed her pregnancy earlier this month during an appearance on Ellen DeGeneres’ show, Ashton is thought to have told Demi way before then.
“Demi knows how badly Ashton wants to be a father and have a huge family – they tried to conceive a kid together for years with no luck,” the source added.
“[Ashton] is desperate to have a big family, and it’s something Mila and he have been open about with their friends. They’re both in a place in their careers where they can actually do this and make it work, but Ashton doesn’t want any more drama with Demi and is keeping her in the loop out of what he says is courtesy.”
