Michael Sheen is hitting back at claims that he was still in a relationship with his former girlfriend when he began dating his current flame, Anna Lundberg, who is pregnant with the couple’s baby.
The 50-year-old actor typically doesn’t comment on his love life, but took to Twitter on Saturday to dispel rumours that he was still involved with ex Aisling Bea, 35, when he began seeing Lundberg, 25.
“Wouldn’t normally respond to this kind of thing but for the sake of people I love and who have more important things to focus on right now,” he tweeted.
“I was single from the beginning of last summer until I met my partner Anna who is now going to have our baby,” he added. “Just for the record. Thanks.”
Last month, Sheen announced that he and Lundberg were expecting their first child together; he’s also father to 20-year-old daughter Lily Mo Sheen, whom he shares with ex-wife Kate Beckinsale.
