Michelle Williams Engaged, Expecting A Child With Thomas Kail


Michelle Williams is engaged, and pregnant!

The Oscar-winning actress recently celebrated her engagement to Hamilton director Thomas Kail, an insider confirmed to PEOPLE Monday (December 30). That’s not all, the source also revealed Williams and the Tony Award winner are also expecting their first child together, per exclusive images published on the celebrity news outlet showing the expectant parents buying baby clothes at Seraphine’s maternity boutique in Kensington, London.

Williams and Kail are no strangers to each other. The 42-year-old helmed Williams in the drama film Fosse/Verdon, which won her an Emmy Award for Lead Actress in a Limited Series earlier this year. Kail also has directorial credits in such projects including The Electric Company, 2 Broke Girls, Grease: Live and Hamilton.

The 39-year-old performer has one child, 14-year-old daughter Matilda, from her previous relationship with the late actor Heath Ledger, who died of cardiac arrest in 2008 at the age of 28. Williams’ reported engagement and pregnancy come a year after speaking openly on looking for love following Ledger’s untimely death.

“I never gave up on love,” Williams told Vanity Fair in 2018. “I always say to Matilda, ‘Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.’”

“Don’t settle,” she advised. “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.”
