Kate Beckinsale hasn't seen her daughter Lily Mo Sheen for two years because of the coronavirus pandemic.

On Friday, the actor appeared on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" on Friday to promote her new movie "Jolt," where she told hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest that national lockdowns had prevented her and Sheen from seeing each other at all.

Beckinsale lives in Essex, UK, but said she went to Canada for filming this year. Sheen, who is 22 and lives in New York, couldn't come out to visit her.

"Two years of not seeing your child is the most preposterous thought," she said.

Beckinsale added that they speak on FaceTime but are both "panicking" that they will "look really old to each other" when they see each other in person.

"My daughter is 22 and looks 8," she said. "She's like, 'I'm just worried that you'll think I'll look old.' I'm like, 'I'm gonna look old.'"

Sheen has just landed her first acting role as Nicholas Cage's daughter in a movie where he plays himself titled "The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent."

Beckinsale said it was "quite scary" that her daughter is "off and running."

Kelly Ripa asked her whether she had given Sheen any advice, to which Beckinsale said: "I said, 'Be a doctor,' and then this happened."

Mother and daughter reunited at JFK airport on Saturday, The Mirror reported.
