Rumours were abound earlier this week as actress Mila Kunis was spotted wearing a gold band on her ring finger, leading to suspicion that her boyfriend of one year and fellow actor Ashton Kutcher had proposed. Though Kutcher has been tangled up in legal issues as he finalised his divorce with Demi Moore over the past year, he and Kunis have been reportedly dating since early 2012 and are regularly seen out and about together.

The Pair Are As Close As Could Be.

"Ashton is set on proposing [to Mila]. He really wants to marry her and is so annoyed that there is still the hold up with the divorce," said a source in the "actor's inner circle" speaking to People. "He knows what they have is amazing and special. He's been thinking about proposing for a long time." However another source addressing the current engagement rumours said "they are not engaged," yet mentioned that the Punk'd star had planned on popping the question on Mila's 30th birthday on 14th August.

Will Ashton Rush Into A New Marriage So Readily After His Divorce?

When seen out together, be it on an exotic foreign adventure or watching basketball in an L.A stadium, the pair don't seem afraid to be smooshy and let each other know their affections. They met as teenagers on the set of 90s TV programme, That 70s Show, where they played fictional sweethearts Jackie and Michael. The pair have just returned from a tour of China where they walked parts of the Great Wall of China and visited Beijing.

Both of the actors' schedules are packed for the next few months so they could well be making the most of the quality time they have now. Kutcher, perhaps keen to move on from his widely panned Steve Jobs biopic, Jobs, will return to filming sitcom Two And A Half Men this Autumn whilst Ted actress Mila will be busy promoting her new movie Third Person at this month's Toronto Film Festival and filming for next year's sci-fi action movie, Jupiter Rising.

If we were Mila, we'd want to make sure we knew Ashton really, really well before we agreed to any marriage proposals, just in case she says "yes" and TV crews pop out of a bush whilst Kutcher yells "PUNK'D!"
