It's been a very special week for Michael Sheen and his partner Anna Lundberg. The couple celebrated their daughter Lyra's first birthday on 23 September, and Michael shared a photo with fans, along with details of her special day.
"Cake was eaten. Family was gathered. A year was lived. Then this turned up at the bottom of the garden to bring things to a close," he wrote alongside a photo of a rainbow. "Happy birthday, Lyra!"

Michael, 51, and Swedish actress Anna, 26, confirmed the arrival of their first baby on Twitter, with Michael sharing a photo showing him leaving hospital with his newborn daughter.
"Happy to say that at 8:41 am on Monday September 23rd our beautiful daughter Lyra was born," the Quiz actor told fans. "Thank you so much to Louise & all the brilliant midwives at both the Singleton and NeathPortTalbot hospitals."

The news that Michael and Anna were expecting a child together was confirmed last July, just two months after the pair were initially romantically linked.
Michael is also a father to 21-year-old Lily, from his previous relationship with Kate Beckinsale. The devoted dad has described parenting as "the most challenging job".

Speaking to the Guardian in 2010, the star shared: "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."

With two actors as parents, fans could be forgiven for thinking that Lily will follow in the footsteps of the Underworld: Rise of the Lycans stars. But as Michael told HELLO in 2017: "She will plough her own path. She's very independent and she knows what she wants to do and so hopefully she'll always have our support in whatever she does but I think she'll make her own way."
