Speaking to Lorraine, he said: ‘I had a package delivered the other day, and I thought I’d take the baby. I started walking up the road and she went nuts. She’s spent half her life in lockdown and you forget that it can be completely overwhelming…

‘So doesn’t know anything but the inside of our house and garden. It’s extraordinary. So we’ve had to build up to putting her in a car seat and managing it all.’

On the downsides of having their newborn in lockdown, Michael lamented: ‘The grandparents who haven’t got to say hello yet – it’s heartbreaking. She’s gonna get the biggest hug of all time from my mum.’

Like many others during lockdown, Michael has grown an extremely impressive beard. On the show, he joked: ’I’ve been in lockdown now for 12 and a half years.’

In April, Michael revealed their little one has given him a sense of routine and said  it was ‘helping’ the couple find a sense of normality amid the ongoing global crisis.

Reflecting on a recent appearance on Newsnight, Michael revealed he was asked about isolation coping tips, he revealed: ”And I said well … the baby has a routine, and I’ve found that that’s helping us.’

However following his comments he noticed that someone had suggested it was and product of his ‘privilege’, he said: ‘And then I noticed that somebody said that was an example of my condescending class-blind privilege.’

The couple welcomed their daughter on September 23. At the time, the actor’s father Meyrick, 80, confirmed the Swedish actress had given birth, and said they were ‘thrilled to bits’ about the news.

Michael’s father gushed: ‘We are thrilled to bits, over the moon.’ Michael shared his own announcement on Twitter days later, with a photo of Lyra and Anna leaving the hospital.

The actor wrote: ‘Happy to say that at 8:41am on Monday September 23rd our beautiful daughter Lyra was born.’

The Good Omens star confirmed he was expecting his first child with Anna last July, just two months after they were initially romantically linked in May following a series of loved-up social media posts.
