Kate Beckinsale will always have Michael Sheen to lean on.
While the longtime couple has been broken up for more than a decade, the two stars continue to be close as they co-parent their daughter, Lily.
Their bond was crystal clear this week when the actress shared an adorable snap of them together on the couch, Beckinsale’s head against Sheen’s chest.
The two appeared to be at one of the stars’ homes. While Beckinsale was dressed casually in a T-shirt and striped pants (with some glamorous stilettos), it was the Masters of Sex alum’s ensemble that you probably noticed first.
“So apparently there are two meanings of the word ‘perineum,’ one being the area of the body between the genitals and anus, and the other, the period of time between Christmas and New Year’s Day,” the actress captioned the peculiar photo. “I thought I had been clear we were celebrating the second but Michael turned up in an impenetrable onesie just in case he was ambushed by an excitable relative.”
On another note, wherever does one find a bunny onesie like Sheen’s?
More than 20 years since their former romance began, it seems these two still bring each other some serious joy.
In 2016, the two burst into happy tears and leapt into each other’s arms when Lily got accepted into college, once again sparking #exesgoals.
While their relationship today may be confusing to some, it’s simple for the actress: they love each other.
“It’s so normal for us,” she told Evening Standard in 2016. “We split up ages ago. We have been not together far longer than we were ever together.” The two met in 1995, welcomed their daughter in 1999 and broke up in 2003.
“But I really love him and like him,” she added. “We make each other roar with laughter.”
