Share article:

Sharon Horgan has found a sneaky way of enjoying a drop of alcohol at home without her kids finding out.

The "Catastrophe" star - who has daughters Sadhbh, 14, and Amer, nine, with her husband Jeremy Rainbird - is reluctant to be seen drinking in front of her children, so she has taken to sipping her favourite tipple from a mug.

She shared: "My relationship with drinking is weird.

"I used to feel bad about drinking too early in front of my daughters because I didn't want them thinking I was some sort of lush. So I started drinking it from a mug."

Sharon's popular sitcom takes a realistic look at the ups and downs of a relationship and parenting.

"Don't look at the birthing room and think, "Oh, that looks nice." Don't do that. Do yourself a favour and get in there and take the drugs."

In fact, Sharon admitted to being bemused by the obsession that some women have with giving birth naturally.

The actress - who stars alongside American comedian Rob Delaney on the Channel 4 show - explained: "I don't understand why there's any pride in a natural birth - it upsets me."
