What a way to end a decade! With only one day left in 2019, four-time Oscar nominee Michelle Williams announced that she is pregnant and engaged to director Thomas Kail. The pair was captured by People hand in hand, strolling down a street in London where Williams, 39, is on location shooting (the highly anticipated) Venom sequel, Venom 2. Williams has a 14-year-old daughter, Matilda, from her relationship with the late Heath Ledger. She also married Mount Eerie front man Phil Elverum in 2018 before splitting earlier this year. Kail, 42, has a longtime friendship with Lin-Manuel Miranda spanning back to their days as undergraduates at Wesleyan University. Kail has directed the Broadway productions of Miranda’s In the Heights and Hamilton, the latter of which won him a Tony and a special Kennedy Center Honors Award. In news that may be of interest to theater geeks, Kail directed Williams in her Emmy-winning turn as Gwen Verdon in Fosse/Verdon, a miniseries about the romantic relationship between a celebrated director and an iconic actress. See? Sometimes life imitates art in a good way.
