Heath Ledger’s father, Kim, is thrilled for Michelle Williams and her new husband.
Last week, Williams, 37, revealed to Vanity Fair that she secretly married musician Phil Elverum in upstate New York earlier this month.
“We are terribly happy, it is great,” Kim told the Sydney Morning Herald, adding he would meet Phil “soon.”
Heath and Michelle dated for several years and welcomed a daughter together before his sudden death in 2008. Their daughter, Matilda, is now 12.
“She’s very private and I don’t really like to make too many comments about her, but we are very happy [for her],” Kim explained.
Michelle and Phil have a lot in common — he is also raising a child after losing a partner. His first wife died of pancreatic cancer one year after giving birth. His daughter, Agathe, is now 3.
She said this relationship is about more than just love.
“Ultimately he loves me the way I want to live my life on the whole,” she said. “… I am finally loved by someone who makes me feel free.”
