Believe it or not, Matilda Ledger, the daughter of Michelle Williams and the late, great, Heath Ledger, is already 12-years-old!

Only two-years-old when her father tragically passed away, new photos of the youngster show she is a spitting image of her dad.  


After Heath’s death in 2008, Michelle decided to raise her daughter out of the public eye, releasing this statement, before leaving Brooklyn to live in the country: 

“I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father. All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day.

“His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time, and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up in the best memories of him.”

More recently, Michelle spoke to Elle about providing a ‘normal’ life for her daughter.

“If you feel like people are watching you, it’s impossible to have an authentic experience of being alive. There’s a performative aspect and a guardedness, and that’s just death.

“I don’t know how to live like that, and I don’t know how to give a life to my child like that.”


Can we all just take moment to appreciate how amazing Michelle Williams is? 

After everything she's been through, she's an incredible mother, has set the 'best friendship goal' benchmark with Busy Philips, and has been nominated for four Oscars!
