Actress Alyson Hannigan was calm, cool and collected during an appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman last week, but she reveals that she was anything but on the cross-country flight to New York.
The How I Met Your Mother star brought her 6-month-old daughter Satyana along on her first ever flight, and admits she was very nervous that it might not go so well.
“This was her first plane flight, so I was really nervous,” Alyson said “I went on my Twitter page and I asked for advice. I got some good advice and bad advice. The bad advice was, ‘Leave her at home,’ or ‘Put her in the overhead compartment…’ But good advice that I took was to hand out earplugs to the people around you and say, ‘Hopefully you won’t need these, but just in case here you go!’”
In the end her fellow travelers did need those earplugs – but not because of Satyana.
“The flight was great, she was awesome. She’s a good baby. But the earplugs did come in handy because there was a toddler a couple rows back that screamed the whole time.”
