Michelle Williams ‘pregnant and engaged’

 

Actress Michelle Williams is reportedly engaged to the Tony Award-winning director of Hamilton - and the two are expecting a child.

Williams, who recently split with musician Phil Elverum, was spotted with director Thomas Kail, 42, in London where she is filming Venom 2, according to People magazine.

A source told the publication that Matilda, Williams' 14-year-old daughter with the late Heath Ledger, set up the two lovebirds and that they eventually decided to marry, reports the New York Post.

People magazine reported that the couple are getting married and expecting just eight months after the actress separated from Elverum.

The couple were pictured holding hands while walking through London - and there was a diamond ring on her wedding finger.

She was reportedly also seen buying baby clothes from a maternity boutique, reports The Sun.

It's reported that the couple met on the set of the acclaimed series Fosse/Verdon, which Kail directed and produced, but little is known about their relationship.

 

 

Williams was previously married to indie musician Elverum - who performs folk music under the moniker Mount Eerie - but the two separated less than a year after secretly exchanging vows.

Before marrying Elverum, Williams was with Oscar winner, Ledger, until his death from an accidental overdose in January 2008.

She previously opened up about how the Aussie's death left a hole in their now 14-year-old daughter Matilda's life.

She told Vanity Fair: "I never gave up on love. I always say to Matilda, 'Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.'"

She also confirmed she had married Elverum in the same Vanity Fair interview.

The 39-year-old Oscar nominee has always kept her personal life under wraps.

She didn't talk much about her romance with Ledger and it was publicly unknown that Williams was seeing new love Kail.

After Ledger's death, the actress said she hated being in the spotlight.
