Her husband-to-be is Thomas Kail, who helmed Williams's 2019 FX series Fosse/Verdon. Kail also won a 2016 Tony Award and a 2018 Kennedy Center Honor for directing Hamilton. A publicist for Williams declined to comment, which is not surprising.

The Hollywood Reporter revealed in April that they had decided to split. Williams previously dated film director Spike Jonez, actor Jason Segel and, most famously, late actor Heath Ledger.

They met while working on the 2005 movie Brokeback Mountain and had daughter, Matilda, who's now 14. Williams and Ledger ended their relationship in 2007, and he died on Jan. 22, 2008. Kail was reportedly previously married to TV and stage actress Angela Christian. Williams, a four-time Oscar nominee, is also having a moment in her professional life, because of her work in the project where she fell in love with Kail. She's up for best actress in a TV movie or limited series for the musical drama about the real-life relationship between choreographer Bob Fosse and her character, Broadway dancer Gwen Verdon.

At the Emmys in September, her best friend Busy Philipps — her traditional date for awards shows — accompanied her when she won an award for the role there.

Actress Michelle Williams and "Hamilton" director Thomas Kail have a lot to look forward to in 2020. A source tells People magazine that the pair is engaged and expecting their first child together.

The news comes after Michelle was spotted shopping for baby clothes at Seraphine's boutique in Kensington. Kail was the director on Williams' Showtime drama "Fosse/Verdon," for which she won an Emmy. Since then, they have been spotted together in London, where Michelle is shooting "Venom 2." Her rep has not confirmed the news. Michelle is also mom to Matilda, 14, with her late ex-boyfriend Heath Ledger. In June 2018 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.'" In that same interview, Michelle went public with her marriage to indie rock musician and Mount Eerie frontman Phil Elverum. They split less than a year later. whitelogo About Your Privacy on this Site About Your Privacy on this Site Welcome!
