But things turned around when she came to power as the Prime Minister. The negativity started when she began to make unhealthy compromises with opponent political parties to remain in the authority which invited her to go through thorny life in her work and personal life. She had to face a substantial issue when her caring husband, Philip Christensen (Mikael Birkkjær) got tired of her long absence which forced him to have an illicit affair while her daughter Laura (Freja Riemann) becomes a victim of depression and anxiety.

While at the mean time with theradiotimes.com she shared about the anxiety every Danish women felt due to the presence of the Alastair in the set and also disclosed about their love for the British man, she said:
"Walking around, you knew Alastair was on set because there were a lot of flushed faces. Everyone thought he was very charming. The Danish women liked Jeremy. We have a thing for English gentlemen.”
With so much of issues faced in her personal and professional life in the drama, the actress must have been well aware of the consequences of being over ambitious in life. In real life, she has completely kept her private out from the media light as the telegraph.co.uk reports the lady to have a long term partner and a son whose identity and details got never revealed till date. And despite achieving so much of fame, Sidse has kept her family completely under the cast. When asked about her personal life by a source, she said:
“Why would I tell you? I don’t see the logic in anyone knowing that about me. For whose sake? Nobody wins.You can ask me, but I won’t answer.”
There remains a conflict weather Sidse got married to her partner or has she divorced due to the existence of infidelity in her husband like the series. Well, with a confined personal life Sidse has not revealed any of her prior relationship statuses nor has informed about the present love life, but with a son and an excellent success, she is surely living a wealthy life away from the media reach. Maybe after she retires, she would bring her family life in the limelight and accordingly launch her mysterious son in Hollywood, so we all are eagerly waiting!#Danish actress
