Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen recreate birth photo


Kate Beckinsale has recreated her daughter's birth photo - 17 years after she was born.

The actress, her ex Michael Sheen and their daughter Lily reenacted their first family photo for a hilarious Instagram post.

It shoes the trio in the same positions they were in back in 1999 when Lily arrived, with a glowing Kate lying in bed, a wild-haired Michael smiling proudly with his arm around her, and the baby lying across Kate's chest.

Kate, 42, captioned the shot: "Always a baby to me #Lily."

And it seems it isn't the first time that the family have reenacted the scene, as Kate recently told E! News that they also took a nostalgic shot for Lily's 16th birthday.

"We reenacted her birth and took pictures of it!" she said.

"I wasn't naked! I was actually in a very nice cigarette pant and a high heel.

"Michael took one of my legs (and held it) and Lily came from behind and was diving between my legs."
