"Amazing all you were able to accomplish and experience in the midst of a pandemic and lockdowns. 2022 is going to be even more amazing with both you and Lily having new films released and new projects to conquer," shared one fan, as another wished the two a happy 2022 and added: "You will always be one of my favorite actresses".
In one picture Kate and Lily - whom she shares with her ex-partner Michael Sheen - pose together in front of homemade gingerbread houses, and in a second they can be seen embracing each other in a tight hug.

Lily, 22, is also an actress and British star Kate shared in July 2021 that they had not seen each other in almost two years which was "the most preposterous thought".
Kate lives in Los Angeles while her daughter resides in New York where she is pursuing her career, and Kate also spent time in Canada filming where entry restrictions were incredibly tight.

During an interview on Live with Kelly and Ryan she 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 she looks eight! She's like, 'I'm just worried that you'll think I'll look old.' I'm like, 'I'm gonna look old.'"
However a week later the mother-daughter duo reunited for Kate's 48th birthday where they looked so alike in the adorable photo as they hugged alongside other friends who were partying with them.
They made gingerbread houses over the holiday season
There was no denying the pair were related as they bore a striking resemblance to one another.
Kate and Michael were together for seven years before they broke up in the early 2000s.
While they didn't continue a romantic relationship, they've maintained an amazing friendship. She's said of her former partner in the past: "I really love him and like him and we make each other roar with laughter."
