Ashton Kutcher doesn't often talk publicly about his and Mila Kunis's kids, 2-year-old Dimitri and 4-year-old Wyatt, but once Ellen DeGeneres revealed herself as a toddler-shamer, the dad had to come to Dimitri's defence with a story about him. In an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ashton was asked how old Dimitri is, except Ellen dubbed him "the young boy who never walks."
Ellen and her wife, Portia de Rossi, are neighbours to Ashton and Mila, and the talk-show host said she'd seen Dimitri about five times and had never seen him walk. At Ellen's comment about him (the conversation in the video above starts at 1:59), Ashton got frazzled and said, "He walks! He's 2!" But Ellen maintained, "He never puts him down. He's always on his back!"
If you've ever parented a toddler, Ashton's story about his son is all too relatable.
"I now have a complex about this," Ashton said. "I have one of those hiking backpack things, so I put him in the hiker to go down the beach so we can actually go down the beach, otherwise it's a whole wrangling session with the kid. And then you came out and you were like, 'Oh, does he walk?' And I'm like, 'Yes! He walks!' So now I take him out of the thing once we get to purview of your house, and I'm like, 'Go, go, go! Run, little sucker!' And I'm trying to dish him along so I don't have to hear about it anymore. This kid's going to be an Olympian, man, because I'm going to be behind him like, 'To Ellen's house! She's watching!'"
