'How I Met Your Mother's' Alyson Hannigan talks baby and Barney as a sitter

alyson-hannigan-baby-video.jpgIs real-life mom Alyson Hannigan down with the notion of Marshall and Lily having little ones on "How I Met Your Mother"?

"I think it's a great idea," she tells Korbi TV in the clip below. "I'm very excited. Absolutely. You know, it's going to limit their time in the bar if it happens. But that's okay, we spend too much time there anyway."

The series does, however, have built-in baby-sitters.

"Not Barney though," Hannigan says. "I don't think that's safe." 

It's true, Barney might not be the best choice for surrogate caretaker. Jason Segel, however, may actually have a hard time handling a real-life baby onscreen once Marshall and Lily give birth.

Hannigan, whose 1-year-old daughter was on set during the filming of the finale, says she'd be willing to let Jason practice with her own kid. Apparently he serenaded the infant earlier this year.

"It was just delightful and she really enjoyed that, so I'd trust him," Alyson shares. "Not alone. But with me there, yeah." 

Wise woman.
