According to an insider, the answer is yes, but the couple is currently keeping their new status on the DL in order to avoid the wrath of Ashton’s ex-wife, Demi Moore, who he is currently in the middle of a divorce settlement with. “Ashton badly wants to marry Mila and have children,” our source reveals. “He’s upset that he wasted so many years on Demi when he believes Mila was the one for him all along.”
Before the Jobs star even met Demi, he starred on That 70’s Show with Mila, who he began dating after splitting from his wife of six years in November 2011. However, the divorce has yet to be finalized, as Demi is reportedly seeking spousal divorce from her ex (although…she’s worth more than he is). Because the official separation is still pending, Ashton is doing his best to avoid making his ex angry, which is why, for now, he’s given Mila a promise ring rather than an engagement ring.
“Even though the divorce keeps getting nastier, Ashton refuses to let it affect the great relationship he has with Mila,” the insider concludes.
