Ashton Kutcher is taking a stand for all of the new dads out there. The 37-year-old, who is father to baby Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, took to Facebook to lament the fact that men's washrooms aren't equipped with baby-changing tables like their female counterparts.
The post simply said: “There are NEVER diaper changing stations in mens public restrooms.” He also gave businesses an incentive to take on the task:
At press time, the post has been shared some 10,300 times and has been liked by almost 235,000 people.
One commenter noted that every men’s room in Florida is currently required by law to have diaper-changing stations. “Every single one. And this law has been in place since 1994. So we’re just waiting for the rest of the country to catch up to us.” Canada doesn’t yet have such legislation in place.
Though the Two and a Half Men star, who just wrapped shooting the series, laments the lack of amenities for dads, he does seem to be a huge fan of fatherhood. While speaking to Ellen DeGeneres he said of the experience: “It’s awesome. It’s unbelievable.”
“We want to be the people that know what to do when the baby’s crying to make the baby not cry anymore. We want to know, like when she makes a little face or something we want to be emotionally in touch with her and I think the only way to do that is by being the one who’s there.”
Ashton is currently taking some time off between projects so he can relax with his new family.
