Sixteen years after they first met as ‘Jackie’ and ‘Kelso’ on ‘That ’70s Show,’ Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are finally tying the knot — and we think they’re perfect for each other!
Sometimes it’s love at first sight and a quick trip to the Vegas chapel, and sometimes it’s a decade-spanning friendship that slowly turns into love. Ashton Kutcher, 35, and Mila Kunis, 30, are the latter, and we’re so glad to see that they are engaged!
Ashton Kutcher & Mila Kunis Engaged — Why We Love It
Yes, some people preferred Mila’s Jackie Burkhart with the wisecracking Hyde (Danny Masterson), but Mila and Ashton had undeniable onscreen chemistry even way back in ’98, when That ’70s Show first introduced the duo has a dumb-yet-lovable pair of lovebirds.
Since the show ended in 2006, much of the cast has drifted apart — you rarely see Scientologist Laura Prepon paling around with Mila — but Mila and Ashton have always remained close as friends, even during Ashton’s marriage to Demi Moore and Mila’s relationship with Home Alone legend Macaulay Culkin.
They’re remained friends through thick and thin no matter what life has thrown at them, and even remained strong as a couple during Ashton’s long and painful divorce. Now that’s a solid foundation for a relationship!

In addition to their obvious hotness and the impressive, decade-spanning nature of their friendship, Mila and Ashton are also perfect because they have so much laid back, normal fun together!
When Ashton was with Demi he was frequently snapped out and about on the Hollywood scene, and now Ashton is totally over that and wants a more normal, quiet relationship. He’s always hanging out at sporting events and low-key restaurants with Mila, and they look just as comfortable and in love as any other “normal” couple there! Every couple needs to have some of the same hobbies, and their mutual love for sporting events is so cute!
Also, they support each others’ families. Mila went home with Ashton for the holidays in December 2013, and Mila even visited Ashton’s old stomping grounds at the University of Iowa for a Hawkeye’s wrestling match. The fact that Mila cares so much about Ashton’s past is adorable, and proves how much she loves him — and he was cuddling her and showing adorable PDA at the event, clearly thrilled to be sharing his history and favorite hobbies with his lady love!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you love Ashton and Mila together as much as we do?
