Nothing But "Kids, Kids, Kids" For Sheree Murphy

10/04/2008 at 10:00 AM ET

With her husband Harry Kewell living in Turkey with a new football team, Sheree Murphy says she’s decided to put her career on hold. "I’m mum and dad at the moment," the 33-year-old former Emmerdale actress notes. "The kids miss him so much I have to make an extra effort to spend time with them." The couple decided collectively that Sheree would stay put in England with Taylor, 7, Ruby Heather Toni, 5, and Matilda, 6 months because the kids are "very happy" there, and enrolled in "good schools." Although "desperate" to return to acting, Sheree says she’s enjoying the time off, as well. 

"It’s nice to be at home at the moment. When Taylor and Ruby were young I was never at home, I was always working so it’s really nice to have this time with Matilda. My acting time will come again."

The life of a footballer’s wife is not nearly as exciting as you might think — at least for Sheree, who says that her children are "a bit baffled when people ask their dad for an autograph." She insists that theirs is "just like any other family, except … dad plays football and mum is on [television] sometimes." Despite the perception of nonstop parties and shopping, Sheree says in reality her life "is pretty boring at the moment." 

"It’s just kids, kids, kids."

I love Sheree, she’s such a great actress and her children are beautiful.

I feel so out of it. Where would I have seen this actress? I would like to know more about her since we seem to be living parallel lives. Well, except for the acting part. I’m staying home with my youngest as well.

Sheree was Trisha Dingle on Emmerdale and she was also a panallist on Loose Women amongst other things.
