Congrats Michael!

The Passengers star - who has daughter Lily, 20, with ex-partner Kate Beckinsale - and Anna, 25, only shared their pregnancy news in July.

There are too many good things to name about becoming a dad at 50. The sleepless nights ain't one of them.

Michael wrote on Twitter at the time: "Very happy to let everyone know that my partner Anna and I are expecting a little angel of our own. (Just to be clear - we're having a baby!) #nottheantichrist (sic)"

Michael recently admitted he isn't looking forward to the "sleepless nights" that are upon him.

He admitted: "There are too many good things to name about becoming a dad at 50. The sleepless nights ain't one of them."

And the Good Omens actor admitted he is "in awe" of his daughter Lily.

He said: "She changed my life when she was born but as Lily's become more of her own person with her own independent life, I've seen how much I thoroughly enjoy her company.

"She's given me an insight into the pressures young people are facing - Lily's 20 now - and that rollercoaster ride of growing up with social media.

"As I watch her work her way through these pressures with courage, tenacity and resilience, I'm really in awe of her."

And Michael believes parenting is his most important job.

He said: "I think being a parent is the most challenging thing you do.

"That's why we're here. It's at the heart of what it is to be a human being.

"It's the ultimate experience because it questions everything about who you are. But it's difficult.

"My job takes me away from my daughter, Lily a lot, so when I am with her the time is really important."
