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

The British actress, her former partner Michael Sheen and their daughter Lily Sheen, re-enacted the moment Beckinsale cradled her newborn daughter for the first time for a hilarious Instagram post on Wednesday.

It shows the trio in the same positions they were in back in 1999 when Lily arrived, in which a glowing Beckinsale is lying in bed with the infant lying across her chest, while a wild-haired Sheen smiles proudly in the background.

Always a baby to me #Lily -- See more tonight on the @latelateshow ✨

And it appears Beckinsale wants to make a tradition out of recreating intimate family snaps, as during an appearance on The Late Late Show in the US with James Corden on Tuesday night (local time), the brunette beauty unveiled a photo of the family taken on Lily's 16th birthday, in which they recreated the moment Lily was born.

The photo shows Beckinsale reclined on a kitchen table with Lily sitting between her legs, while a flustered-looking Sheen stands to the side.

"Michael and I thought, y'know, it might be quite nice to recreate the birth in a photo," explained Beckinsale, causing the audience to burst into laughter. "So that's why there's so much effort on my face.., and Lily's doing the 'yikes I'm coming out of a vagina' face and Michael's not doing very much at all, which is quite realistically what the real thing was like."

Beckinsale and Sheen were together for eight years before calling it quits in 2003.

However, the two remain close and Sheen, 47, and his girlfriend Sarah Silverman, 45, even attended the premiere of Beckinsale's new movie Love & Friendship in Los Angeles in the US earlier this month.


Kate Beckinsale's new movie Love & Friendship, based on an early Jane Austen novella, has received excellent reviews.

"I love her. I love her. I love her," Beckinsale said of Silverman to E! Online. "I am so glad Michael found her so I don't have to spend the rest of my life looking for her!"

Love & Friendship has been receiving excellent reviews, and it out in New Zealand in July.
