Mila Kunis may be starring in a movie called “A Bad Moms Christmas,” but the Jewish mother of two with Ashton Kutcher has a committed Shabbat practice for her family. In a confessional interview with co-star Kristin Bell, Bell admitted that neighbors have caught her feeding her daughter nonalcoholic beer. Kunis responded:
Want me to make you feel better? We do Shabbat in our house. At Shabbat you have a sip of wine. My daughter has had a sip of wine since she was born.”
Kunis and Kutcher’s daughter, Wyatt Isabelle, is 3 years old. Her brother, the equally magnificently named Dimitri Portwood, is 10 months old.
Kunis added, “Friday mornings [when she] wakes up and I’m like, ‘It’s Friday,’ she goes, ‘I can have wine?!’”
Cheers to the weekend, Wyatt and Dimitri! An early Good Shabbos to the whole Kunis-Kutcher household.
