Believe it or not, fans watched actress Alyson Hannigan’s IRL pregnancy unfold on the hit series How I Met Your Mother through her character Lily—which is pretty legen—wait for it—dary, if you ask us. Now, with a 6 and 9-year-old at home, the comedy star is returning to the small screen to lend her voice to a role all too familiar to her: the leading mom.

She isn’t afraid to lean on her husband for those awkward parenting moments.

“I have absolutely told my kids to go ahead and ask dad to get out of answering a tough question. Yes, and I enjoy saying, ‘That’s a great question for your father. Why don’t you go ask him?’ I love it. And then I go watch, I go watch him squirm. It’s fun—he is good at it.”

She’ll take advantage of her kids faux-pas for some great video content.

“My daughter was going to do a magic trick that she’s never learned. She just watched a trick where you poor milk into a paper container—it’s called disappearing milk.
