There were several challenges working on a stressful job whilst being the mother of two daughters, but Daisy reckons the added constraints helped her in some ways. She remained unfazed and never lost the desire to become the perfect mother even though her infant baby had a tongue tie while her older daughter had recurrent chest infections.
There’s this myth that you have kids and your brain doesn’t work and you can’t do anything, and actually that’s just rubbish because it completely focused me.
I could have written a million shows to myself in my 20s and 30s, but I was too busy sitting around in my pants complaining about all the time I had. I had too much time.
Meanwhile, not much is known about the actress’s married life with musician husband, Joe Wilson. Taking a peek into her Instagram, apparently, the couple loves goofing around and often shares adorable snaps. The entire family of four looks wonderful together.
Stars as Ally Worsley on FX Comedy ‘Breeders’ (2020)
Breeders is an FX parenting comedy starring Martin Freeman and Daisy Haggard as the imperfect parents of the two susceptible kids.
The premise of the show reads:
FX’s Breeders is an uncompromising comedy that explores the lives of Paul (Martin Freeman) and Ally (Daisy Haggard) as they juggle full-time careers, aging parents, a mortgage and the unenviable curveballs of parenting their young children. When Ally’s estranged father appears on their doorstep, the family essentially takes on a third child – but this one comes with baggage and opinions.
Daisy Haggard plays the character of Ally Worsley, the wife of Paul Worsley, played by Martin Freeman. The rest of the main cast includes Jayda Eyles and George Wakeman as Eva Worsley and Luke Worsley, respectively. In addition, Better Call Saul star Michael McKean portrays the role of the wacky grandpa of the kids.
