Actor Michael Sheen revealed that he and his family have been battling COVID-19 on Monday.

He wrote on Twitter, “I’ve spent the last few weeks laid low by COVID. It’s been very difficult & quite scary.”  He then went on to thank his wife and others for their support, “I want to thank all the incredible women-Anna, Mum, Lily, Joanne, my friends & all the women I am lucky enough to have support me who’ve helped me through this.”

His girlfriend, actress Anna Lundberg, shared on Instagram that she and the couple’s 17-month-old daughter Lyra also tested positive for the virus as well.

Lundberg wrote on Instagram, “Yes, we’ve all been dealing with THE virus the last few weeks,” said Lundberg. “Michael and Lyra caught it first and then, inevitably, so did I. It’s been very challenging for all of us but luckily we’re all much better now than we were. Thankfully I was lucky to only have relatively mild symptoms, which meant that I could keep focusing on Lyra and Michael.”

“I’m extremely grateful for our recovery and the support we’ve had from friends and family. X.”
