Beckinsale’s Daughter, Lily
One of Kate Beckinsale’s first prominent relationships in Hollywood was with Michael Sheen, who she was in a relationship with for 8 years. In 1999, the pair had a daughter, Lily. Lily means a ton to Beckinsale, who always focused on raising her daughter over her career.
In a new interview with rollacoaster.tv, the actress described how her daughter’s presence affected her approach. While some may think think that missing out on young Hollywood life isn’t ideal, Beckinsale calls Lily a blessing.
“So in a way I suppose, yes, I missed out on having a wild social life in my twenties and thirties,” Beckinsale said. “But actually, I think I really got lucky in terms of having Lily as a kind of shield, so that I was just focused on my work. People would ask me, ‘what’s the LA scene like?’ and I’d say, ‘I have absolutely no idea.’
We here at Outsider wish Beckinsale a speedy recovery as she deals with her back issues.
