Dawson’s Michelle Williams Expecting 3rd Child: ‘This Good Fortune Is Not Lost’

Michelle Williams is expecting her third child. The 41-year-old Oscar-nominated actress and her husband Thomas Kail, 44, will welcome their second child this fall, Variety magazine reports.

“It’s really happiness”Williams told Variety. “As the years pass, you kind of wonder what life might or might not have in store for you. It’s exciting to discover that something you want over and over again, is available once again. That good fortune never ends. is not lost on me or my family.”

This will be the couple’s second child: their son, Hart, was born in 2020. Michelle Williams has a 16-year-old daughter, Matilda, from her relationship with the late actor Heath Ledger. Kail, best known for directing “Hamilton”, worked with Michelle Williams on “Fosse/Verdon”.

Michelle Williams, who gave birth to Hart during the lockdown, believes raising a young child during this time has helped her put all the dark headlines of the pandemic into perspective.

“It was a reminder that life goes on,” believes the actress. “The world we brought a baby into is not the world we thought we were bringing a baby into, but the baby ignores it. He experiences joy and a mixture of discovery and the happiness of a loving home.”

Williams sat down with Variety magazine to discuss her time at the Cannes Film Festival. She will indeed be in the south of France for the premiere of her film “Showing Up”, her fourth film with director Kelly Reichardt, with whom she has already collaborated on “Meeks Cutoff”, “Certain Women” and “Wendy and Lucia”. “Showing Up” centers on the life of a sculptress struggling with distractions while having to organize a major art exhibition. It’s a film about the joys and frustrations of the creative process, something in which the actress sees parallels in terms of parenthood.

“The most ecstatic moments in life and art are the most transcendent”, says Williams. “Having children is like that. You combine your DNA with someone else to create a new life.”
