While he’s portrayed himself as a snotty slacker in much of his work, Ashton Kutcher is actually a gentleman at heart.

And when the “Dude, Where’s My Car” star decided to propose to his girlfriend Mila Kunis, he first sought the approval of her father Mark.

An insider shared, "He talked with Mila's dad around Christmastime. He asked for Mark's blessing to marry her. It was important to Ashton to be respectful and traditional. This is the real thing for him and he wants to do it all right."

Meanwhile, it seems they’ll tie the knot before the year is up. "They don't want to wait. This relationship started on solid ground and everything is working out. They are in it for the long haul, truly. They are clearly very much in love, in tune with each other and so comfortable. In some ways, it's like they're married already."
