Lily Collins Reveals If Her Famous Father Has Met Fiance Charlie McDowell's Famous Father Yet

Lily Collins and her new fiance, Charlie McDowell, both have pretty famous families – however, not all of them have actually met each other yet.

The 31-year-old Emily in Paris actress is the daughter of musician Phil Collins, and Charlie‘s parents are iconic British actor Malcolm McDowell and his mom is Mary Steenburgen.

Speaking in a new interview with SiriusXM’s The Michelle Collins Show this week, Lily revealed that she revealed that Phil and Malcolm had yet to met, despite both being based in the UK.

“Um, uh, no, not yet,” she admitted. “Everyone’s around the globe. So it’s, it’s a little difficult.”

Lily added that she wasn’t aware if they had met in the past at some point, either.

“Who knows, like if one day in the past they have, you know, in terms of like they’re both English and all that, but yeah, no, not yet,” she shared.

In another interview, Lily did open up about knowing Charlie was the one for her fairly early in their relationship.

“I was very surprised as to when and where it would happen, but it was one of those situations where I knew the second that I met him that I wanted to be his wife one day,” Lily shared while appearing on Live with Kelly and Ryan. “So, it was just a matter of when, really.”

Lily and Charlie announced their engagement just last week. Check out her unique ring here!
