Michael Sheen and his Swedish actress girlfriend Anna Lundberg are now parents to a newborn girl, according to Micheal Sheen’s father, Meyrick. Michael and Anna had only been together before a few months before the pregnancy news broke, and Michael had to drag some people via Twitter when they claimed he wasn’t single when met Anna. That said, they seem to be going strong and are of course are “over the moon” about their new baby.
This baby is Michael’s second child as he already has a 20-year-old daughter named Lily Mo Sheen with Kate Beckinsale. Which means Lily is 20 years older than her half-sister and only 5 years younger than her dad’s girlfriend. So yeah, this feels about right.
According to The Daily Mail:
Michael Sheen has welcomed a baby girl with girlfriend Anna Lundberg, MailOnline can exclusively reveal.
The 50-year-old actor’s father Meyrick, 80, confirmed the 25-year-old Swedish actress had given birth, and said they were ‘thrilled to bits’ about the news.
Speaking about the happy announcement on Friday, Michael’s beaming father gushed: ‘We are thrilled to bits, over the moon.’
Michael confirmed the news on Twitter saying that they decided to name their baby Lyra:
Happy to say that at 8:41 am on Monday September 23rd our beautiful daughter Lyra was born. Thank you so much to Louise & all the brilliant midwives at both the Singleton and NeathPortTalbot hospitals. ❤️👶🏴🇸🇪😍 pic.twitter.com/Y4Xdt7GkMz

Michael has dated lots of famous women including Sarah Silverman and Rachel McAdams, and now he’s got a baby with a 25-year-old Swedish actress while looking like your kind hearted high school guidance counselor, who wears elbow patches and smells like patchouli oil and smokes a pipe.
Anna has less of a well-known celebrity dating history:
Anna bills herself as a ‘Swedish/NYC actress currently living in the UK’ and has appeared in productions of Othello and Frank Wedekind’s Spring Awakening.
The thespian completed a three-year theatre programme in Sweden, followed by summer courses at London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA) and Guildford School of Acting.
The Far From The Madding Crowd star has been swept up in a whirlwind romance with Anna since the couple went Instagram official in May.
Well congrats to Michael and Anna! And if anyone has an issue with their 25 year age gap, please make sure to send all your complaints to Netflix, and not Amazon, so there’s a zero percent chance Michael will ever see them.
