Kate Beckinsale has described herself as an "embarrassing" mother.

The Underworld actress, who has 13-year-old daughter Lily with former partner Michael Sheen, said that her child becoming a teenager has completely changed how their relationship works.

Beckinsale told The Telegraph: "She's become a teenager so all of a sudden I became a whole lot more embarrassing than I'd ever been in the past.

"I do have a tendency to be that sort of awful mother who thinks she's really hip so right now I have to give her space and realise that as far as she's concerned, I am really not cool."

Three months ago, Beckinsale described her family as "unconventional" because she is married to director Len Wiseman and raises Lily with him and Sheen.

She said: "We've got a kind of unconventional family situation, with two dads, and I've always been the constant parent, the one who is here. So if anything ripples the water, then it's important to be home.

"My daughter is about to be 13, and I realise how fleeting time is. I was happy to be around Lily to talk about her day when she got home."
