Michelle Williams, the girlfriend of the late Heath Ledger, got engaged to director Thomas Kail. The two are expecting their first baby. Michelle will welcome her second child, considering she already has a 14-year-old daughter, Matilda, with the late Joker, Heath Ledger.
Michelle and Thomas hid their relationship so well that no one in Hollywood knows how long they’ve been together. Many assume the pair met on the set of the Golden Globes-nominated series “Fosse/Verdon.” Michel has already won an Emmy Award for her role in this series for her interpretation of Gwen Verdon. She won the 2023 Golden Globe as the Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series, or a Motion Picture Made for Television award for this role.
Williams delivered an emotional speech on the Golden Globe Award ceremony when receiving her award. The 39-year-old actress spoke about woman’s right to choose when it comes to abortion.
“To choose when to have my children and with whom, when I felt supported and able to balance our lives, knowing, as all mothers know, the scales must and will tip towards our children. Now, I know my choices might look different than yours, but thank God, or whomever you pray to, that we live in a country founded on the principle that I am free to live by my faith and you are free to live by yours”, Michelle said and her moving words earned a noticeable applause.
"Women are the largest voting body in the country. Let's make it look more like us."

The paparazzi photographed the actress in London the other day buying baby clothes. She and Thomas are currently staying in this city, where they are filming a sequel to “Venom,” along with Tom Hardy.
That life is unpredictable shows that the news of Michelle’s pregnancy and engagement came just months after the actress divorced her ex-husband Phil Elverum. Michelle and Phil ended their marriage in early 2019. The marriage lasted only a few months.
To Thomas Kail, the marriage to Michelle will also be the second in a row. He was previously married to actress Angela Christian.
