Michelle Williams is expecting her first child together with her new fiance Thomas Kail.
A source confirmed to PEOPLE magazine that the Oscar-nominated actress is engaged to the Tony Award-winning director Thomas Kail. The couple met while working together on Fosse/Verdon for which Williams won the award for the best lead actress at the Emmys.
Michelle and Thomas were also recently spotted together in London where The Greatest Showman actress is filming her upcoming movie Venom 2.
Williams already shares 14-year-old daughter Matilda with late-actor Heath Ledger, whom she met while filming Brokeback Mountain.
News of her latest engagement comes a year after she split from musician Phil Elverum. Michelle Williams married the songwriter secretly in the Adirondack Mountains in 2018. However, they broke up in April.
After news regarding Michelle Williams’s engagement and pregnancy spread, people on social media started congratulating the star. However, some people also confused the actress with Destiny Child‘s Michelle Williams.
The singer took the joke in stride and clarified the mix-up through her Instagram story. She congratulated Michelle on her pregnancy and engagement and also wrote, “A few comments are trickling in and of course I had to Google to see what’s going on!”
Adding: “Congrats are certainly in order but for #dawsonscreek #fosseverdon #brokebackmountain #greatestshowman #manchesterbythesea “Michelle”. Ok Bye.”
Furthermore, in 2018 Michell Williams opened up to Vanity Fair about the struggles of being a single mom and raising a child. She revealed, “When you’re a single parent, and that element of provider and protection is missing, it’s scary. I always say to Matilda, ‘Your dad loved me before anybody thought I was talented, or pretty, or had nice clothes.’
The actress also added, “I never gave up on love. Don’t settle. 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.”
Congratulations to Michelle and Thomas!
