During their relationship, Kutcher was a hands-on stepdad who accompanied the kids to training and attended parent-teacher meets.
Ashton Kutcher started seeing Demi Moore when he was just 25 years old. Although the actress was fifteen years older than Kutcher, the two here were happy and were often seen together with Moore's daughters. Kutcher quickly developed a bond with the three girls and became their stepfather when the couple got married after two years of dating.
Demi Moore was married to her children's father Bruce Willis from 1987 until 2000. After Moore married Kutcher, the two men formed a perfect friendship. In 2010, Kutcher said that Bruce Willis was his friend, and they have seen a lot together. "At first it was difficult. You think, 'He's the guy who used to sleep with my wife', but once you overcome the jealousy… it gets easier…being with Bruce is normal to me now. We go scuba-diving, and skiing, we hang out with the girls together, we watch movies, we talk about sport," Kutcher said in an interview, per ContactMusic.
The couple was happy until Moore went through a miscarriage that affected her commitment to her kids and the two youngest daughters did not exchange a word with their mother for many years.
During an interview on the Jada Pinkett-Smith show Red Table Talk, Rumer Willis, Moore's eldest daughter said that the marriage had taken a toll on them and the younger sisters don't even understand what's going on.
The whole thing was not far from the truth as Moore has gone on record saying that she was "addicted to Kutcher" and it took her away emotionally, per ELLE.
Six years later the much-talked-about couple filed for divorce. However, Kutcher who was a stepdad at 25, was extremely pleased with his role. According to Entertainment Weekly, The star was a hands-on stepdad who accompanied the kids to training and attended parent-teacher meets. Just before separating from Moore, in 2009, he helped Rumer buy a house worth $971,500. Nine years later he signed off his share of the Hollywood Hills home. According to METRO, the actor filed a grant deed as a married man which made his second wife a part owner of the 1,800 square meters home. Thus Kunis filed a quitclaim deed, giving rights of ownership to Rumer.
Almost a decade later after their divorce, the former teen model, who is now married to Mila Kunis, admitted that he has maintained the equation with his ex-wife's kids. The star did admit that after the separation he never tried to engage with the kids as he thought that was their father Bruce Willis' place so they never hung out after that. However, Kutcher still shares a bond with Rumer, and the two were seen a couple of times hanging out together. In 2019, the two were seen at the Balck Market Bar in the Studio City neighborhood in L.A, as per PEOPLE.
Talking to Marc Maron on WTF podcast Kutcher said, “I make a really conscious effort to stay in touch with the girls. Tallulah was 8 or 9 [and] Rumer was 12 or 13 when we first started dating” in 2003. He said explaining that during their relationship he had helped "raise teenage girls through their adolescence."
