Michael Sheen and Kate Beckinsale adorably embrace upon hearing their daughter Lily got into college


Kate Beckinsale and Michael Sheen might be exes, but they're also proud parents.

Upon hearing that their 17-year-old daughter, Lily, got into college, the two couldn't help but excitedly embrace. "The appropriate fatherly response when you find out your girl got into college," Beckinsale, 43, captioned photos of Sheen picking up both herself and Lily. "Burst into tears, drop everything, rush over and pick up everyone even remotely involved. @lily_beckinsale, we are so unbelievably proud of you . Fly fly fly."

Sheen also spoke to ET's Carly Steel about his family and how he plans to spend the holidays with Lily, Beckinsale and his current girlfriend, Sarah Silverman.
