While welcoming his daughter into the Messy podcast, which she co-hosts with her friend Jamie-Lynn Sigler, who also lives with MS, the Dead to Me star, 52, described her teenager as the best guest she “could ever have” and her reason for “getting up in the morning.’

The 13-year-old, who the Emmy-winning actress shares with her husband Martyn Le Noble, revealed that it was her idea to come on the MeSsy podcast and talk about her own experience as the daughter of someone who suffers from MS.

“When she was diagnosed, I felt like… not like it was all over, but it was hard to see my mom lose a lot of the skills that she used to have in my childhood,” Sadie told listeners.

She continued, “When I was a little girl, we would dance in her room for hours at a time.”

Although Sadie said it’s been a “difficult” time for her family, the teen emphasized that “it’s also been nice to be able to help and support her.”

Still, Sadie joked that her mother may be reluctant to accept her help.

“Every time we go to a concert, she always says, ‘You can’t push my wheelchair, Sadie, you’re going to crash into a wall,'” he said. ‘And I will beg you. I just said, “Please, Mom, let me push your wheelchair.” Because I want to help her, so that’s definitely why I want to do it, but it’s also funny because she’s always like, “No, I want this person to do it”… and it’s never me.’

Applegate then jokingly told Sadie that she’s “afraid that… if there was a ramp that Sadie would just let go” to be “funny.”

Despite her occasional concerns, the Hollywood native noted that her daughter was “very good at pushing the wheelchair.”

After she was first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in June 2021, Sadie recalled how Applegate made her ‘wear socks with sand or like balloons with sand’ to ‘help’ her ‘understand the pain of walking.’

“It was a very uncomfortable experience,” Sadie said.

Sadie also opened up about her own health issues, including misophonia, which is a “strong aversion or hatred toward certain sounds,” according to WebMD.

The condition can cause someone to have unusually strong emotions, bodily changes, or reactive behaviors that compromise functioning, socialization, and mental health.

Additionally, he was recently diagnosed with postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome (POTS).

POTS is an abnormality of the autonomic nervous system that can cause an excessively fast heart rate and symptoms of lightheadedness.

‘When my mom says, “It hurts right now. I’m shaking.” If I didn’t have (POTS), I’d probably say… I don’t know what you’re talking about. But I actually have tremors because of POTS,’ Sadie explained. “It’s definitely a lot easier to understand what she’s going through when I’m going through something too.”

Over the years, Sadie has accompanied her mother to several star-studded events, including the 2023 Screen Actors Guild Awards and the 2024 Emmy Awards.

The 13-year-old, who the Emmy-winning actress shares with her husband Martyn Le Noble, revealed that it was her idea to come on the MeSsy podcast and talk about her own experience of living life after her mother's MS diagnosis.
