Ashton Kutcher is the latest celebrity parent to decry the media for a lack of respect when it comes to children’s privacy.
The “That 70s Show” actor took to Twitter to vent his frustrations that press outlets won’t respect his and wife’s Mila Kunis’ desire to keep their daughter Wyatt’s identity a secret.
Why is it so hard for publications to respect that I would like the identity of my child kept private for safety reasons? Pls honor that.

Kutcher explains in the tweet that the couple haven’t released pictures of their daughter for safety reasons. Though Wyatt Isabelle was born in October 2014, Kutcher and Kunis haven’t released any pictures to the press or published them on social media. They chose to announce her name to the press via Kutcher’s website aplus.com once the baby was born.
In the announcement post, Kutcher also posted pictures of several other babies — both human and animal — asking if people could guess which one was Wyatt. “Or does it really matter? All babies are cute,” the actor wrote.
Both Kutcher and Kunis have tried to keep their private life out of the press despite both having Hollywood careers. Kunis was even reluctant to admit the two were married until “Late Late Show” James Corden brought it up in his premiere episode.
