    Ashton Kutcher's Super Thoughtful Valentine's Gift For Mila Kunis Turned Out To Be A Complete Fail

    "It's the thought that counts."

    It's pretty clear to anyone with eyes that Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis are ridiculously in love.

    In fact, the start of their relationship was like something out of a rom-com.

    So, when Valentine's Day rolled around, Ashton made sure he marked the occasion with a meaningful gift.

    However, during an appearance on The Ellen Show, Mila revealed that the gift went hilariously wrong.

    Mila prefaced the story by saying that she "loves [Ashton] so, so, so, so much," and that it's "the thought that counts."

    She went on to explain that Ashton gifted her with two Lovebirds, and the reason why was stupidly cute.

    She said: "Our kitchen faces a tree and there were birds nesting. My daughter and my son and I got so into watching this robins' nest, and birds being born. We were fascinated with these little birds. So for Valentine's Day Ashton got me two little Lovebirds."

    But when they took their new pets to a bird specialist to get them checked over, it turned out that they weren't Lovebirds after all.

    She said: "When we took them in to get their nails trimmed and things you do with birds, she informed us that we did not have Lovebirds, and we in fact had Parakeets. They're called budgies. We have budgies."

    When Ellen informed Mila that Budgies "cost, like, ten dollars," and asked her whether Ashton had deliberately chosen a cheaper option, Mila responded by saying that he'd actually been misled by the pet store.

    She said: "He called a Petco-like store, and they were like: "Yes, come in we have Lovebirds!" And so he did, and they showed him and sold them. So now we have two little Parakeets — one's teel and one's blue."

    To see where Ashton could possibly have gone wrong, I took it upon myself to look up both breeds. Here are a pair of Lovebirds.

    And here are two Budgies.

    So, to be fair to Ashton, they're not wildly dissimilar. And, as Mila said: "It was a beautiful thought."
