'Good Omens' for five-time dad David Tennant's matching baby announcement with co-star Michael Sheen
David Tennant has become a father for the fifth time - with his wife managing to plug his show Good Omens in their birth announcement.
Georgia Tennant shared the happy news with a jokey post referencing the Amazon Prime show, where Tennant stars alongside Michael Sheen, who also had a recent new addition to his family.

A photo of Tennant from behind leaving hospital carrying his new child in a car seat mirrored a similar shot of Sheen from September, captioned: “An angel, a demon and a couple of babies. What could possibly go wrong?”
In the show, Tennant plays demon Crowley and Sheen is angel Aziraphale who teams up with him in an unlikely duo to ward off the coming Armageddon so that they can continue to enjoy life on Earth.

Good Omens is based on the Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman novel, but whether or not it will get a second series is up in the air as the six-episode run was made as a self-contained story.
However, Sheen has said he would love to return to it if there was another story about Crowley and Aziraphale to make.
The actor told the Radio Times: “It’d have to be by Neil, I suppose, and it would depend on what it was, really. But yeah, I’d come back.
“I love the character and I love the world of it. It’s very enjoyable working with David and the rest of the team.”
