Talk about being super friendly with your ex! Actress Kate Beckinsale and former partner, actor Michael Sheen, appear closer than most after commemorating their daughter Lily’s 16th birthday this week. Along with Lily, the pair recreated several moments from the day she was born — and the results are truly hilarious.
The first photo, shared yesterday, shows Beckinsale, Sheen, and their daughter Lily posing to recreate a sweet moment captured right after Lily’s birth. (It looks like Lily has that whole sleeping baby thing down pat.)
But as Beckinsale teased in the photo, there would be more to come later that night on The Late Late Show with James Corden — and she certainly didn’t disappoint.
During her interview with Corden, Beckinsale revealed a second recreation; this time, of the actual birth itself:
As Beckinsale explained the inspiration behind the funny photo to James Corden, she shared:
“It was her 16th birthday and Michael and I thought that it might be nice to recreate the birth in a photo. That’s why there’s so much effort on my face personally and Lily is doing the ‘Yikes! I’m coming out of a vagina’ face … and Michael’s not doing very much at all.”
We love Beckinsale’s super realistic recollection of giving birth, as well as Sheen and Lily’s willingness to participate in the hysterical photoshoot. We must say, this family has an excellent sense of humor.
(Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go bother our own parents about recreating the day we were born, and see if they’re game.)
