Sheen later went on to congratulate well-wishers for their congratulations in the wake of the big announcement.
He wrote in another message to the micro-blogging site: "On behalf of Anna and myself thanks to everyone for your lovely messages of congratulations. It’s been a wonderful, bleary-eyed week full of love and kindness and extraordinary poo. #NotReferringToMyself."
While Lyra is Lundberg's first child, the Twilight actor is already father to a 20-year-old daughter, Lily Mo, whom he shares with actress and former girlfriend Kate Beckinsale.
Sheen announced back in July that he was to be a father again, referencing his Good Omens role as he wrote on Twitter: "Very happy to let everyone know that my partner Anna and I are expecting a little angel of our own. (Just to be clear - we’re having a baby!)#nottheantichrist."
