Mila and Ashton met on the set of That 70’s Show back in 1998. Mila was an unknown and very young actress, while Ashton has already forged a successful modeling path for himself. At the first table read for That 70’s Show, Ashton was 19, and Mila, much younger than him. But no one, except for Mila, knew just how young she was.

The casting director of That 70’s Show was required only to hire actors 18 years or older. When Mila was questioned about her age, she lied and stated that she is turning 18 soon. But soon, in her language, meant in four years. Mila was only 14 when she was cast in the show. And that made some things pretty interesting for her.

Mila, being as young as she was, has never had a boyfriend and has never kissed a boy. When the onscreen couple Mila and Ashton played on That 70’s Show was meant to kiss, no one realized this would be Mila’s first kiss in her life. And Mila was dealing with something else at the same time.

Ashton had model looks and was extremely popular among the girls. Naturally, Mila developed a crush on him, and this made their onscreen kisses even more strange. But there was one thing that was stopping both from pursuing anything while the show was running.

The Age Difference

On the show, Mila’s and Ashton’s characters were close, but in real life, everything was different. The age difference, at that time, was simply too big for them to develop any sort of romantic feelings for each other. Ashton became more of a big brother role model for Mila. But even that relationship was to end soon.

After seven very good seasons of That 70’s Show, Ashton pulled out. This meant that he was no longer in daily contact with Mila, and even though they kept in touch from time to time, their relationship dwindled until it came to a complete halt. But was Mila hoping for more?

Mila revealed that she really appreciated that Ashton sometimes messaged her, checking in on how she was doing. But even she wasn’t as naive as to believe there could be anything between them romantically. Her crush on him was now almost gone. Little did she know that she would get an opportunity to reignite it a few years later.

Reconnecting Again

In January 2012, Mila and Ashton met once again, this time, on the stage for the 69th Golden Globe Awards. They haven’t seen each other in years, and have rarely even talked. What’s more, both of them were living their lives to the fullest, in relationships, and happy. And that history they didn’t share together put an even bigger dent in their relationship.

Mila was in a pretty serious relationship herself, while Ashton went through a very public and often scrutinized marriage to Demi Moore. Clearly, both Mila and Ashton moved on with their lives, but now that they were adults, meeting again at an award show, did anything change?

Mila remembers those Golden Globe Awards very specifically, as it was when she realized that her crush on Ashton hadn’t passed yet. She noticed Ashton sitting in front of her, and she began thinking towards him romantically again then and there. And it wasn’t before long that the love wheels started turning.

The First Kiss

In 2012, Mila and Ashton shared their first off-screen kiss at Ashton’s housewarming party. They were surprised at the incident at first and talked about just how big of a mistake it was. They were both single and wanting to remain so, and a new relationship, especially with another celebrity, would just not work for them at that time. But fate had different plans with them.

Soon after the first kiss at the housewarming party, Mila moved into Ashton’s house. After that, things escalated quickly, and Ashton finally filed for divorce from Demi Moore and was officially single by the end of 2013. It looked like the new couple was preparing for something big.

Only a few months after Ashton became officially divorced from Demi Moore, he asked Mila to marry him. Naturally, Mila said yes, and the two were set to get married very soon. But no one was expecting the next big news that Mila revealed in a rather strange way.

Much like most celebrities, Mila and Ashton wanted to keep their privacy private and rarely talked to the media about their relationship. But in 2014, when Mila made an appearance on The Ellen Show, she reveled in front of thousands of people that she was pregnant. And the family of the celebrity couple started growing.

In 2014, Mila gave birth to the couple’s daughter Wyatt Isabelle. A few months after that, the couple finally tied the knot in California and went on to have another baby in 2016. Their son, after much deliberation, was named Dimitri, even though Ashton was pushing for a much more odd and original name - Hawkeye.

The love story of Mila and Ashton is the stuff romantic movies are made of. Having met so early on in their lives, and having found a way back to each other many years later, is proof that there was, possibly, some sort of fate that played a role in their lasting romance. It's a great love story, right? Why not share it with all your friends that want to find true love?
