Alan Halsall and Tisha Merry talk about parental clashes in a “blended family”


Alan Halsall and Tisha Merry talked about what it takes to co-parent in their “blended” family with her ex Lucy-Jo Hudson. The stars of Coronation Street bonded after Alan’s relationship with Lucy-Jo ended and have co-sponsored their six-year-old daughter Sienna since then.

Tisha also exposed what it’s like to go from being single to a stepmother.

Talk to OK! Magazine, the soap association, talked about the parental disagreements they have with Lucy-Jo and how they solve the problems.

Alan, who plays Tyrone Dobbs in the ITV series, was married to Lucy-Jo for nine years before separating in May 2018. They have now made progress in finding solutions for their daughter to make the most of both worlds.

Alan Halsall and Tisha Merry of Corrie reveal the “ups and downs” of co-parenting in a blended family with her ex Lucy-Jo

Lucy and Alan separated in May 2018 after nine years of marriage – but have now managed to found a “blended” family.

The actor said, “There will always be ups and downs with a blended family.

“As long as Sienna comes first in all of this, that’s all that matters. Sienna has her mom and dad, and she also has Lewis and Tisha. It’s just a case that everyone likes it.

“Of course there will be differences of opinion; as long as we are in this loving way when Siena is there.

“We don’t have a lot of communication, it only concerns Siena and that’s all she needs. ”

Tisha added that there may be little feet again as she would like to have a child with Alan.

She said, “He’s such a good father, he’s so caring and loving. I would love it for our child if we have one. “

Alan Halsall spoke about the trials and tribulations of co-parenting with ex-Lucy-Jo Hudson

The 27-year-old actress said she had to adjust to being a mother-in-law after previously only having to worry about when she was single.

Tisha said, “In all honesty, I have had several times where I thought” Oh my god, my life has changed so much “. It’s crazy but it changes for the better.

“When I first met Alan and became a more important part of Siena’s life, my father said” it will be the creation of you “.

“It’s tricky when you went from a single girl with no one to think of someone with a family. It’s the best thing in the world, but it can be really intimidating. “

Alan admitted to opposing his daughter’s parenting

Lucy-Jo has already talked about the difficulties that co-parenting presented, especially since they have different styles for raising Siena.

She said, “The fact is, everyone who has a blended family knows that it is not easy. You cannot pretend that this is the case.

“And Alan and I sometimes have different opinions about Sienna’s education, so trying to co-parent can be difficult.

“It’s probably like that for many blended families. ”
