Mila Kunis: I’m Planning a Natural Birth
“He assumed that I was going to have goofy cravings, so he stocked our secondary fridge with weird food. 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.’ “

What she’s been craving mostly is sauerkraut. But one day last week, the fridge came in handy when her cravings shifted.
“I was like, ‘Oh my God, I need a pickle.’ It was just the weirdest thing,” Kunis says. “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 actress, 30, says she and Kutcher, 36, have a name picked out but they aren’t revealing it. They’re also keeping the sex a secret.
But Kunis is more forthcoming about her birth plan, saying she’s committed to having a natural birth — that is, without an epidural.
“The hospital that I’m going to be laboring in does a midwife, you know, doula type of thing,” she says. “I’m going to do it as all natural as I possibly can unless that there’s an emergency or something that should go wrong.”
She adds, “I did this to myself, I might as well just do it right. I wanted this!”
