Michael Sheen has announced his girlfriend Anna Lundberg is expecting their second child.

The 53-year-old Good Omens star revealed he has just wrapped on filming of season two of the Prime Video fantasy TV series in which he plays an angel, but added that he has a new angel on the way.

Sheen shared a picture of his jacket from Good Omens hanging on a door captioned: "At times like this we need all the angels we can get. Sadly it’s time for this one to hang up his coat. However….#GoodOmens2"

He then added a picture of Lundberg's baby bump captioned: "…..it appears there may be another on the way! #AngelDelight."

The Welsh actor and the Swedish actor Lundberg already share a two-year-old daughter Lyra, whose hand is featured in the photo, placed on the baby bump alongside those of her parents.

He previously revealed how daughter Lyra - born in September 2019 — had found her re-emergence into the world "overwhelming" after growing up in lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Sheen revealed: “She’s spent half her life in lockdown and you forget that it can be overwhelming.”

“All she’s known now is this house and our garden.”

Fans of Good Omens  based on the novel by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett and co-starring David Tennant — are eagerly awaiting the second series of the hit TV show, expected to be released later this year.

Sheen recently declared himself a "not-for-profit actor” after selling two of his own houses to fund a charity.

The Staged star helped organise 2019 Homeless World Cup in Cardiff and when funding for the £2m project fell through Sheen sold his own houses to raise the money needed.

But the Welsh actor revealed that if he could continue to work he could afford to keep donating the money he earned to charity.
