Based on my knowledge, the following sentence is ungrammatical because "has" is a verb and "bold" and "daring" are adjectives.

"His wife is bold, daring, and has plenty of children."

But how about this sentence where there is only one of each type? Is it grammatical?

"His wife is bold and has plenty of children."

    Probly the is in is daring shouldn't be omitted along with his wife by conjunction reduction. She is bold, (she) is daring, and (she) has plenty of children. Or the two predicate adjectives can be conjoined: She is bold and daring, and has plenty of children. – John Lawler May 30 '16 at 13:29
