Alyson Hannigan: No TV for my kids!


Alyson Hannigan’s children don’t watch television.

The 40-year-old How I Met Your Mother actress shares two young daughters with husband Alexis Denisof. And Alyson reveals her little girls, Satyana (5)and Keeva (2) are kept away from the small screen as much as possible. “My kids don’t watch television yet,” she told People magazine.

‘My kids don’t watch television yet’

Alyson is open to allowing her tots to watching TV in the future.

The star is pretty sure her eldest daughter is getting close to having the opportunity to view her first programme.

“It’s probably getting to the point where we’ll introduce it to Sati now,” Alyson shared. “We were waiting for her to start begging us. She’ll ask occasionally, but until recently she didn’t know we had a television so it was a non-issue.

“I think she was convinced for a long time that the only thing on television was either news or sports because when you go to restaurants that’s what they’re playing.”

Alyson confesses it was difficult to keep her kids away from hit animated family film, Frozen, at the height of its popularity.

So she allowed Satyana to see the movie, on one condition.

“We let her watch it without the sound,” Alyson said. “We figured if she’s just going to lean over and watch it on someone else’s screen, we can just put it on the screen in front of her. So she says she’s seen Frozen. Pretty much!”

Alyson married her Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Alexis in 2003 in Palm Springs, California.
