“I don’t know why everyone was so surprised. Sarah’s such a fantastic woman, I love her and Michael and I have gotten [along] for years now. I’ve known him since I was 22, we’re basically family,” Kate recently told Stylist magazine.
“The thing that surprised me was what a big deal everybody made about us all getting [along] and then thinking, ‘F–k, that’s really sad if it’s that unusual,” she added.

Kate and Michael previously dated for eight years from 1995 until 2003 and have a daughter, Lily Mo Sheen, 17, together. The Queen actor and Sarah, 45, have been an item since early 2014.
During her interview with Stylist, Kate added she’s thrilled Michael and Sarah are dating because she believes the comedienne is a positive role model in Lily’s life. “I’m completely open to any other strong, cool sensitive independent-thinking women who are going to be an influence in my daughter’s life,” she said.
