Actor Michael Sheen expecting first child with girlfriend Anna Lundberg

Michael Sheen is expecting his first child with girlfriend Anna Lundberg.

The Twilight actor took to his social media pages to announce the exciting news that he and new girlfriend Anna Lundberg will be welcoming a little one in the coming months.

Sharing the news with his Twitter followers, he wrote: ‘Very happy to let everyone know that my partner Anna and I are expecting a little angel of our own. (Just to be clear – we’re having a baby!)’.

The 50-year-old, who currently plays an angel in Amazon Prime TV show Good Omens, followed his announcement with the hashtag ‘#nottheantichrist’, making a joke referring to the programme.

He also added a series of sweet emojis including one of a baby, an angelic face and the Swedish and Welsh flags to reflect the home countries of the parents-to-be.

This has been quite a year for the couple, as reports have suggested that the Masters of Sex star sparked up a relationship with 25-year-old Anna back in May.

After much speculation that the two had been seeing each other, the pair seemed to confirm their relationship when they appeared together at the London premiere of his current TV series Good Omens.

The aspiring actress even took to her private Instagram account to express how proud she was of her partner.

The duo’s happy news comes after Michael split with his ex-girlfriend, Irish actress and comedienne Aisling Bea, back at the start of the year.

This will be the second child for Michael, as he already shares daughter Lily Mo Sheen with ex-partner Kate Beckinsale.

The 20-year-old actress was welcomed by her parents during their eight-year relationship, before they split back in 2003.

Speaking about parenthood to the Guardian back in 2010, Michael said that being a parent is the ‘most challenging’ yet rewarding job he has ever done.

‘I think being a parent is the most challenging thing you do. That’s why we’re here. It’s at the heart of what it is to be a human being.

‘It’s the ultimate experience because it questions everything about who you are. But it’s difficult.

‘My job takes me away from my daughter, Lily a lot, so when I am with her the time is really important.’

Big congratulations to Michael and Anna on their exciting news!
