Mila Kunis promises 'Ellen' that baby is due 'this year'

It's no secret that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher are engaged and expecting. (Kunis hasn't exactly been hiding her huge engagement ring or her growing baby bump.) Now in an interview set to air on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” Friday, the actress is speaking publicly for the first time about the couple's happy news, divulging some details and keeping mum on others.

At certain points, the funny 5-minute teaser clip seems like a game of 20 questions, in which Kunis is all terse answers and mysterious smiles.

“You’re not saying when it’s due or anything like that?” DeGeneres asked of the impending arrival.

Kunis shook her head no, then grudgingly added, “Sometime this year, I promise you. It will be this year.”

“And you’re not saying if it’s a boy or girl,” DeGeneres prompted.

“No,” Kunis said.

“Do you have a name picked out?”

“Yes,” Kunis said, declining to elaborate.

But later in the interview, the Ukraine-born actress may have inadvertently dropped a clue about her due date. When telling DeGeneres how fiance Kutcher is learning Russian so he can speak to the baby in Kunis’ native language, the actress revealed, “He’s been taking classes for probably, like, six months now.” (Perhaps a little Leo is on the way?)

Kunis did say she’s planning on a natural birth, without the use of anesthesia.

“Will you do an epidural, even?” the host asked.

“No,” Kunis declared. “I did this to myself; I might as well do it right.”

“Well, you didn’t do it to yourself,” DeGeneres corrected. “I know that much. I may not know a lot, but I know that much.”
