Madison Anthony, Senior Staff Writer

It’s official! Recently news broke that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are expecting. This announcement is particularly sweet because the couple is currently one of Hollywood’s greatest and most endearing love stories.

The pair first met in 1998 while working together on Fox’s hit sit-com That ‘70’s Show. Kunis played the rich, self-centered cheerleader, Jackie Burkhart, and Kutcher played idiotic pretty-boy Michael Kelso. Kunis, who was just fourteen at the time the show began, revealed that Kutcher was her first kiss. However, according to several people who worked on the show the pair reportedly could not stand each other at the time. The two also both had their share of romantic relationships during the show’s run. Mila Kunis dated former child-star Macaulay Culkin from 2002 to 2010, but the relationship was kept low-profile. Meanwhile, Aston Kutcher had several high profile relationships that occurred during the show’s run, including his romance with January Jones that lasted from 1998-2001 and his nine-month relationship with actress Ashley Scott in 2002. Filming for That ‘70s Show ended in 2006 and Kunis and Kutcher went their separate ways.

In the years leading up to their relationship they were able to both build successful careers and stay in the media’s attention. Mila Kunis starred in several hit movies such as Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Friends with Benefits, and earned her first Golden Globe nomination for her performance in Black Swan. Ashton Kutcher also starred in several films, including Valentine’s Day and What Happens in Vegas, but also found success on television. He was the host of MTV’s Punk’d and took over for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men. He also married actress Demi Moore in 2005, but the couple filed for divorce in 2012.

Later that same year, Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher were spotted together on several occasions. Rumors began circulating of a possible romance between them, which they confirmed in 2013. After two years of dating, the couple announced their engagement in February of 2014. One month later, Mila Kunis’ pregnancy was confirmed. This will be the first child for both. Their relationship didn’t begin as a traditional co-star romance, instead beginning years after their days together on set. Kunis and Kutcher remain one of Hollywood’s most interesting couples and their relationship is deeply endearing.
