Mila Kunis has opened up about being a mum for the first time since giving birth to daughter Wyatt Isabelle – her first child – with fiancé Ashton Kutcher.
Commemorating the occasion, new mum Mila, 31, has designed a special maternity ring worth $5450 (US$4800).
Mila was appointed as a brand ambassador for Gemfields, a luxury producer of precious stones, earlier this year, when she travelled to Zambia, Africa to meet with the locals and investigate ethical mining.
Now in their latest campaign, Mila has collaborated with jewellery designer Marina B to create the ring as a symbol of motherhood, and has taken the opportunity to reflect on motherhood herself.
“Carrying a child and bringing new life into the world marks the start of an incredible journey,” Kunis, 31, says. “Throughout history, every culture has its own way of recognizing this extraordinary event, often with a gift for mother or child.”
Mila has chosen to honour fellow mothers with all proceeds from the sale of the $5450 ring will be donated to the Gemfields Nkana Health Center in Zambia, in support of an upgrade and the addition of a maternity clinic.

The gold ring features an elaborate green emerald design and Mila says that: “Precious green emeralds are traditionally symbols of motherhood, wisdom and long-lasting love. “
“But they are also a symbol for hope in many cultures, and so the proceeds from this collection of Motherhood Rings will benefit the opening of Gemfields Nkana Health Centre, where four new wards have been built — a major undertaking that will have long-lasting benefits to the local community.”
Mila welcomed baby daughter Wyatt Isabelle just three weeks ago with fiancé Ashton Kutcher.
Ashton, 36, chose to make the birth announcement via Facebook:
“Mila and I would like to welcome Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher to the world. May your life be filled with wonder, love, laughter, health, happiness, curiosity, and privacy.”
