American actress Michelle Williams is expecting her third baby.
This will be the “Venom” actress’ second child with her husband Thomas Kail. They welcomed their first child, a son named Hart in 2020.
Williams also shares daughter Matilda, 16, with late actor Heath Ledger, who passed away in January 2008.
“It’s totally joyous. As the years go on, you sort of wonder what they might hold for you or not hold for you. It’s exciting to discover that something you want, again and again, is available one more time. That good fortune is not lost on me or my family,” the actress said in a statement on Tuesday.
She noted becoming a mom again during the coronavirus pandemic was a reminder that life goes on.
“The world we brought a baby into is not the world we thought we were bringing a baby into, but the baby is ignorant of that. He experiences the unmitigated joy of discovery and the happiness of a loving home,” Williams added.
“There is nothing that makes you committed to a better world than raising a great kid. It’s the ultimate creative act. The most ecstatic moments of life and art are the transcendent ones. Having children is like that. You combine your DNA with someone else to create a new life.”
The Oscar nominee will welcome her third baby this fall.
