Ashton Kutcher is recovering after breaking his toe in an early morning accident at home.
The actor revealed his attempts to be a great dad left him nursing a nasty injury during an appearance on U.S. TV show Live With Kelly and Ryan on Tuesday (10Sep19).
“I was in bed and our daughter comes into the room to, like, jump in bed with us… and sometimes I just, like, scoop her up and put her in bed, sometimes I take her back,” he explained.
“So she comes in and I am like, ‘OK, I’m either going to get 15 minutes of hell from my daughter right now or 15 minutes of hell from Mila in the morning’, because we’re trying to get her (daughter, Wyatt) to sleep in her bed. And so I’m like, ‘OK, I’m gonna go put her in bed’.
“I go to take a step and I just go down. My toe is, like, pointing the other direction now. And I’m on the ground and I’m like, ‘Babe, I think you need to take Wyatt to bed’. And so she comes around and takes her to bed.”
Kutcher didn’t want to go to urgent care at 3am, so he attempted to fix his broken toe: “I, like, do a Mel Gibson, Lethal Weapon thing and just kinda put it back on,” he said, adding his wife Mila Kunis was very impressed with his pain threshold: “Mila’s like, ‘That’s the sexiest thing I’ve ever seen you do’. I was like, ‘I will break my toe every night for you, babe’.”
He then added a word of warning to all parents, stating, “Be careful when your kids come into the room at night. It can be more dangerous than you think!”
