Get ready for baby Kunis-Kutcher.

Hollywood actress Mila Kunis is expecting her first child with Ashton Kutcher. The pair, who met more than a decade ago on the set of “That ’70s Show” and became engaged last month after dating for over a year, confirmed the news on Monday after several weeks of speculation.

Kunis is Jewish, meaning the child will be as well. The actress was born to a Jewish family in Ukraine and moved to the US when she was 7 years old. She has spoken openly of her Jewish faith and even her desire to have “Jewish babies” with Kutcher. And while Kutcher hasn’t yet officially converted, he is an avid devotee of Kabbalah, which he began studying while married to Demi Moore.

Kunis and Kutcher traveled together to Israel several times to visit the Kabbalah Center in Safed, and in September 2013 tabloid photographs showed Kunis consoling Kutcher at the funeral of Kabbalah chief rabbi Philip Berg, who was buried in the mystical city.
