Michelle Williams has a lot to look forward to in the New Year. The Emmy-winning actress is said to have been engaged to her Fosse / Verdon director, Thomas Kail, and the couple are also expecting their first child together!
According to People Magazine, it was Williams’ daughter Matilda, 14, whom she shared with the late Heath Ledger, who “played the role of matchmaker” for Williams and Kail. The two worked together in the drama Fosse / Verdon because she was the main actress and he was the director and producer. Williams ended up winning an Emmy for his performance.

Kail is not only an accomplished television director and producer who also won an Emmy for directing Grease: Live, but he is also the Tony Award-winning director of Broadway hit hit Hamilton.
Williams has always kept his personal life extremely private. But, after losing Ledger in 2008, she occasionally talked about finding love. Last year, the Oscar-nominated quadruple told Vanity Fair that she didn’t really like talking about it, but she didn’t give up on love.
“I never gave up on love,” said the 39-year-old Dawson’s Creek elder. “I always say to Matilda,” Your father loved me before no one thought I was talented, pretty or that I had nice clothes. »»
She added that she was talking about finding love once in a while because maybe it could help someone who struggled as much as she did and who watched as much as she watched. Williams also warned people to never settle for something that looks like a prison, is difficult or hurts you.

“If it doesn’t sound like love, it’s not love,” said Williams.
Cameras recently caught Williams and Kail together in London where she is currently shooting Venom 2. She was also spotted at Seraphine’s maternity shop in Kensington during a shopping spree for baby clothes.
The news of Williams’ engagement and her second pregnancy comes just eight months after her separation from her husband Phil Elverum in April. They were secretly married in July 2018 in the Adirondacks. Since Ledger’s death, Williams has also been linked to Jason Segel, director Spike Jonze and author Johnathan Safran Foer.
