Pretty soon Bernadette and Howard are going to have their life changed forever. A baby affects not just the parents but an entire family. Bernadette’s family is one subject that we do not know as much about as others. However, we do get to meet her mother and father on occasions. Being that Bernadette is about to expand her family, it is only quaint that we revisit what we know about where she grew up.
Her father is a retired police officer who comes off as a bit of a red-neck. Bernadette warns Howard to avoid certain topics that imply he is right-wing in politics. On one occasion he mentions he likes drinking beer, hunting, and fishing. Her father appeared to have the most influence on Bernadette. Mike’s personality is one where he does not take anything from anyone and even is a bully. These traits come out sometimes in his tiny daughter.
