Ashton Kutcher Surprises Mom With Home Remodel: Her Stunned Reaction
He may be a huge star living in Hollywood now, but growing up, Ashton was just a small-town boy from Iowa, where some of his family still lives. In a new video for HouzzTV, the actor returns to his childhood home, which he helped his stepfather build when he was just 13, to completely remodel it for his mom.
“I think everybody has a place in their life that they call home. It sort of has that feeling of home, and no matter where you go in the world or what you see or what you do, when you think of the word ‘home,’ you’re drawn to a specific place in your mind,” Ashton explains in the video, noting that this property in Homestead is what he truly considers “home.”
But, he says, now that there’s grandchildren in the picture, he wants to make the residency more modern for the family’s new generation. “There are a lot of reasons to go home and do something special like this, but at the end of the day, it’s my way of saying ‘Thank you’ to my mom,” he adds. “My mom has been the greatest influence in my life and anything that I can do to say thank you is the right thing to do.”
With Diane in Los Angeles to help with Ashton and Mila Kunis’ new baby, Wyatt, the Houzz team tore apart the entire house and finished the renovations in just 27 days, with Ashton pitching in his ideas via an online app.
Naturally, the Two and a Half Men star’s mother was completely shocked and blown away by the whole thing. Watch the video to see her reaction!
Ashton and Mila reportedly gave Diane another great surprise recently, by asking her to help plan their wedding, OK! Magazine claims. Although it’s been rumored that the couple may already be married, the mag’s April 27 issue says they’re actually still making plans for an intimate ceremony.
“They don’t want note than about 40 guests,” an insider told OK!. “Mila’s letting Ashton’s mom, Diane, and her own mother, Elvira, do a far bit of the planning — she knows how much they enjoy it and likes that they can bond over some ideas.”
It’s so great that even though Diane may live far away, Ashton is still making sure she’s a huge part of his and his daughter’s life!
