Ashton Kutcher said that his and Mila Kunis’ kids haven’t chosen a public life, so they don’t post photos of them.
The “That ’70s Show” costars have a 5-year-old daughter named Wyatt and a 3-year-old son named Dimitri. While Kunis isn’t active on social media, Kutcher has explained why his fans don’t see photos of their children online.
“We don’t share any photos of our kids publicly because we actually feel like being public is a personal choice…. My wife and I have chosen a career where we’re in the public light, but my kids have not,” the actor said on an episode of “The Thrive Global Podcast” in October 2017.
He continued, “So, I think they should have the right to choose that, and I actually don’t think that they should have images of them as children that are out there, that somebody could potentially blackmail them with or do whatever — you know. It’s their private life; it’s not mine to give away.”
Adele keeps her son away from cameras because “it’s really hard being a famous person’s child.”
The “Someone Like You” singer said that she’s keeping her 7-year-old son Angelo out of the spotlight on social media and away from paparazzi to protect him in the future.
“We need to have some privacy,” Adele told Vogue in March 2016. “I think it’s really hard being a famous person’s child. What if he wants to smoke weed or drink underage, or what if he’s gay and doesn’t want to tell me, and then he’s photographed and that’s how I find out?”
Mindy Kaling avoids showing her daughter’s face in photos.
Not only does the writer and actress spare details about her 2-year-old daughter Katherine’s life, but she doesn’t post photos of her face on social media. Kaling posts the back of Katherine’s head when she does appear on her feed.
“I’m on social media and like sharing with people what my interests are and how my day’s going and all of that, but I do feel entitled to have privacy about my daughter and my relationships. It’s really essential to my life that there be something not everybody knows about. That’s a boundary, but it’s a very small boundary. Everything else I really don’t have any issue sharing,” she told Glamour in June 2019.
Kaling has also refrained from answering questions about Katherine’s paternity.
“My feeling is that until I speak to my daughter about that, I’m not going to talk to anyone else about it,” she told The New York Times in June 2019.
