The late actor’s dad talked about Michelle Williams getting married in secret. As you may be aware, the actress who was Heath Ledger’s ex tied the knot with Phil Elverum in an intimate ceremony not too long ago.
Now, the father is claiming his family is ‘terribly happy’ for her.
Last week it was reported for the first time that Michelle Williams and indie musician Phil Elverum got married earlier this month in upstate New York.
Reportedly, among the handful of guests Michelle’s daughter with Heath, 12 year Matilda, as well as Phil’s own daughter Agathe, 3 were in attendance at their parents’ wedding.
Kim Ledger, Heath’s dad, talked to Sydney Morning Herald’s The Goss about the marriage news, saying that ‘We are terribly happy, it is great.’
As for whether or not he has met Williams’ new hubby, Kim explained that while that hasn’t happened yet, it will very ‘soon.’
‘She’s very private and I don’t really like to make too many comments about her, but we are very happy [for her],’ the man added.
Despite Heath’s unfortunate passing, Kim and his former wife Sally have kept a very close relationship with their former daughter in law and granddaughter.
Heath and Michelle first met while working on Brokeback Mountain back in 2005 and soon started dating.
They put an end to their relationship two years later, in 2007 when Matilda was just a toddler and only months before Heath’s untimely death at the age of 28.
Sadly, the musician also lost his partner back in 2016 when Geneviève Castrée lost the battle with pancreatic cancer.
Their three-year-old was just a baby at the time.
Before their marriage was revealed, Michelle and her new husband Phil had never actually made their romance official publicly.
