After weeks of silence, Mila Kunis has finally confirmed that she’s expecting her first child with Ashton Kutcher, the Daily Mail reports.

The 30-year-old sat down with Ellen Degeneres in an episode timed for Mother’s Day. No details on whether the baby is a girl or a boy, or when the due date is, but the actress was more than happy to dish about her food cravings: ‘I’m very stereotypical. I eat sauerkraut all day long,” she said.

And before you ask, yes, Ashton has been more than accommodating:

He assumed that I was gonna have goofy cravings, so he stocked our secondary fridge with weird food,” Kunis added. “Just like pickles, and sauerkraut, or like anchovies, and ice creams…just in case at one point during this pregnancy I’d be like I really want something. And it happened last week, I was like oh my God, I need a pickle. Like it was just the weirdest thing. Like I needed this pickle and he was like hold on a second and disappeared in the backyard and came back with the most amazing dill pickle of all time.

The “That 70s Show” star also revealed that she wants a natural birth. “We watched a couple of documentaries and we looked into the like the you know midwife aspect of it and things and spoke to my OB/GYN and realized that the hospital that I’m going to be labouring in does have a midwife, you know, Doula type of thing.”

Kunis, who is Jewish and originally from Ukraine, added that Kutcher was learning Russian so they could raise a bilingual child.
