The Masters of Sex actor previously ended his 8-year relationship with actress, Kate Beckinsale in 2003. He shares a 20-year-old daughter with the Underworld actress.
He also revealed in an interview with The Guardian, “The hardest thing was having to deal with it in the midst of so much media attention. I wasn’t used to that and I wasn’t prepared for the intensity of it.”
“For a while I thought I was going off the rails. But it hasn’t made me more guarded. I think you just do whatever you need to do for your children, don’t you? We’ve just been very lucky that we’ve all got on very well, and that’s great for Lily,” he added.
He also shared about his experience with being a parent. Sheen said, “I think being a parent is the most challenging thing you do.”
He further added about his job interfering with the time he spent with his daughter at the time she was young. “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, 11, a lot, so when I am with her the time is really important.”
Sheen seems to be a mindful parent and would be a good father even to his second child. As he explained in the interview, “I want Lily to have as an example a parent who is enjoying their work and is passionate about their work.”
“But at the same time, I don’t want it to be something that takes me away from her too much,” he added.
He also dated Sarah Silverman after his split with Kate. However, Sheen broke up with 48-year-old American stand-up comedian in 2017.
