It’s been almost one year since the tragic death of Matilda Ledger’s father Heath. Man, it was such a shock to everyone, but for those closest to the young star…it was horrific. Matilda Ledger, daughter of Michelle Williams and Heath Ledger, still just a young child doesn’t quite understand why her daddy isn’t around. But, mama Michelle is doing her best to deal with Heath’s absence for the sake of her daughter. Thankfully, Matilda has been Michelle’s rock.
“Matilda never really understood what happened when he died. It was heartbreaking when she asked for daddy and Michelle had to explain that he wasn’t coming back.”
“Matilda’s a really upbeat kid who giggles all the time. That’s the one thing Michelle says will make her smile no matter what — hearing her daughter laugh.”
It has been a struggle for Michelle, but she is fighting through the grief and rebuilding her life for both her and her daughter.
“Things are getting easier, little by little, day by day. Slowly she’s come back from the shock and heartbreak.”
