Kate Beckinsale, 47, reveals she hasn’t seen her daughter, Lily Sheen, 22, for TWO years

Kate Beckinsale has admitted she hasn’t seen her daughter Lily Sheen, 22, for almost two years after claiming that the Covid-19 pandemic has kept them apart. 

The actress, 47, who shares her only child with actor Martin Sheen, declared it is ‘preposterous’ and ‘ridiculous’ that they haven’t seen each other as she confessed they are both panicking about looking ‘really old’ when they reunite. 

Since making the comments, Kate has reunited with her daughter and the duo were spotted arriving at JFK Airport in New York together on Saturday.

Appearing on Live With Kelly And Ryan on Friday, Kate said: ‘I haven’t seen my daughter for two years because of everything. Also, I went to Canada working and she couldn’t come see me.

‘Two years of not seeing your child is, to me, the most preposterous thought, it is ridic[ulous].’

Kate lives in Brentwood, Essex, but she jetted over to Alberta, Canada at the start of 2021 to film a new TV series. Meanwhile her daughter resides in New York.

Her ex Michael, 52, is based in Port Talbot in his native country of Wales, with his partner Anna Lundberg, 26, and their daughter Lyra, 22 months. 

Speaking about the upcoming reunion with her daughter, Kate added: ‘Thank goodness for FaceTime and all that, but we’re both panicking that we’ll look really old to each other.

‘My daughter is 22 but looks eight! So she’s like, “I’m just worried that you’re going to think I look old” but “I’m going to look old”‘. 

Kate confirmed her daughter is pursuing an acting career and stars in the forthcoming action-comedy, The Unbearable Weight Of Massive Talent, alongside Nicholas Cage. 

It is believed that Kate has spent the pandemic alone after splitting from musician Goody Grace, 24, in 2020 after months of dating. 

In an interview with Extra recently, she commented on her love life: ‘Do you know, I’ve really barely ever been on a date.’

The Underworld star quipped: ‘Like I literally kind of meet someone, get to know them at work and then either marry them or get pregnant by them, on the whole.’

She confirmed she has certainly never been on a blind date with a ‘total stranger’ as she said: ‘I just can’t think of anything I’d hate more than sitting in front of somebody I don’t know, that chances are I won’t like, and then have to sit and watch them eat food.’ 

Kate began dating Michael in 1995 before they separated in 2003. The Prodigal Son actor also appeared as Kate’s co-star in multiple Underworld films including the original feature which came out in 2003.

From 2004 until 2016 Kate was married to Len Wiseman, who directed the first two Underworld films and has been a producer throughout the franchise.

Kate was regarded as having dumped Michael for Len but she denied as much to Entertainment Weekly in 2012.

‘The popular notion of how Michael and I broke up – that we were on [the first Underworld] and I ran off with the director – is just not true,’ she said.

‘If that were the case, I think it would be very difficult and peculiar to have an okay situation. But everybody involved has felt that the priority is Lily and wanting to get to a good place for her. And everyone is nice. So it’s not bad.’

Michael has said the split ‘was obviously not easy, but in the end it was absolutely fine.’

He previously said: ‘I think we were both brave to have given each other the opportunity to say, “this isn’t making us happy any more. We need to try for something different.”‘

The Welsh actor, who has done three Underworld films, clarified: ‘He’s a lovely bloke, Len, and I never felt like anything had gone on behind my back.’

In recent years Kate, whose late father was the English comic actor Richard Beckinsale, has dated a number of younger comedians.
