Kate Beckinsale is one proud mother! The 43-year-old took to her Instagram page on Sunday to share a beautiful tribute to her lookalike daughter Lily before she headed to her High School prom. In the caption, the mother-of-one gushed: "You take my breath away @lily_beckinsale #prom you're funny and clever and gorgeous and just enough crazy to be my favourite person in world." Her 18-year-old daughter looked divine in a stunning red strapless gown, while her brunette tresses were worn loosely in tousled waves.

Kate often takes to social media to share snaps of her only child, whom she shares with ex-partner Michael Sheen. Despite going their separate ways 13 years ago, the former couple have remained the best of friends. They ended their eight-year relationship in 2003 when Lily was aged four. The Midnight in Paris actor, 48, is now in a relationship with comedic actress Sarah Silverman. Speaking about their friendship last year, Kate told the Telegraph: "We're very lucky. I spent nearly ten years of my life with Michael. I don't think I've got horrible taste and I really value the friendship that I have with him, and the fact that he is Lily's dad."

Michael recently opened up about their family dynamics. Chatting to Chelsea Handler on her Netflix talk show Chelsea, he revealed: "Our relationship now is probably better than it ever was. And it helps that she [Kate] actually likes Sarah more than she likes me." He added: "The only way it doesn’t work out is that now I have not only Sarah, but also Kate and my daughter Lily, who all just make fun of me and embarrass me at any given point."
