English cricketer James Anderson's wife Daniella has admitted that her husband's hectic schedule means that she has to go about her parenting duties alone.
Daniella said that that this was not what she signed up for when she accepted Anderson's proposal of marriage in early 2005.
Since the couple were married, the Lancashire paceman has spent every winter abroad.
A highly successful model who featured regularly on the catwalks of New York, Milan and Paris and whose previous boyfriends include former Oasis front man Liam Gallagher said, "I definitely do feel like a single parent sometimes."
"'It's horrible having to take the kids to a party or a situation where other kids are there with mums and dads and Lola says, 'Where's my Daddy?'" the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.
"She is at the age when she gets cross if he isn't around. She hates cricket because it means Daddy going away," she said.
The couple share two daughters, 3-year-old Lola Rose and 1-year-old Ruby Luxe.
