Michelle Williams is ending the year with a bang. Not only is the Oscar-nominated actress engaged to Hamilton director Thomas Kail, but she’s also pregnant with the couple’s first child together.
Sources confirmed the news to People, revealing that Williams, who worked with Kail on the series Fosse/Verdon, was spotted shopping for baby clothes in London where she’s currently filming Venom 2.
The 39-year-old was previously married to the late Heath Ledger with whom she shares a 14-year-old daughter, Matilda, and has been open in the past about hoping to find love again after his passing.
“I never gave up on love,” she told Vanity Fair in 2018 about moving on. “I always say to Matilda, ‘Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.’”
On speaking about Ledger, Williams said she doesn’t like to talk about her private life but sometimes does so in the hopes that it will help others who are grieving.
“I don’t really want to talk about any of it. But what if this helps somebody?” she said. “What if somebody who has always journeyed in this way, who has struggled as much as I struggled, and looked as much as I looked, finds something that helps them?”
She continued, “Don’t settle. Don’t settle for something that feels like a prison or is hard, or hurts you. If it doesn’t feel like love, it’s not love.”
Our 2020 dating mantra? Exactly what she said.
