Heath Ledger’s daughter is getting so big!
The late actor’s wife Michelle Williams was spotted walking home with her daughter Matilda Rose Ledger back in January — and the 11-year-old looks just like her famous dad.
Little Matilda is about to be sprung back into the spotlight as her late father’s long anticipated documentary I Am Heath Ledger is set to air on Spike TV on May 17. The film will feature home movies and interviews with Heath’s close friends, family, and co-workers — and we imagine his daughter and her mom Michelle will be a part of it.
Michelle, 36, and Heath started dating in 2004 and the following year, they welcomed their only child together. Matilda was only two years old when her parents broke up in 2007, which was just one year before her father’s untimely death.
Last November, the Manchester by the Sea star revealed heartbreaking details about how she and her daughter moved on from that tragic experience. She opened up about what it’s like to raise Matilda without her father in a rare interview.

“In all honesty, for pretty much everything else, I feel like I’m a believer in not fighting circumstances, accepting where you are and where you’ve been. In pretty much all senses but one,” Michelle told Net-A-Porter. “I would be able to go totally down that line of thinking were it not for Matilda not having her dad. You know, that’s just something that doesn’t… I mean, it just won’t ever be right.”
