"I've spent the last few weeks laid low by COVID," he tweeted. "It's been very difficult & quite scary."

The actor also gave a special shoutout to the women in his life for this year's International Women's Day. "On #InternationalWomensDay I want to thank all the incredible women," he continued. "Anna, Mum, Lily, Joanne, my friends & all the women I am lucky enough to have support me who've helped me through this."

Sheen's partner, Anna Lundberg, 26, also confirmed her and daughter Lyra's diagnoses via Instagram on Monday: "Yes, we've all been dealing with THE virus the last few weeks," she captioned her post. "Michael and Lyra caught it first and then, inevitably, so did I. It's been very challenging for all of us but luckily we're all much better now than we were. Thankfully I was lucky to only have relatively mild symptoms, which meant that I could keep focusing on Lyra and Michael."

"I'm extremely grateful for our recovery and the support we've had from friends and family. X," she added.

Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Sheen has been working alongside David Tennant on the BBC comedy-drama Staged — Sheen and the former Doctor Who star portray two actors trying to rehearse a play in lockdown.
