Michelle Williams: Manhattan Stroll with Mom and Matilda

Posted Monday October 28, 2013 12:08 PM GMT

Enjoying some family bonding, Michelle Williams took her daughter Matilda to school with the help of her own mother Carla Williams this morning (October 28).

The “Shutter Island” stunner kept warm with a cream cable-knit sweater as she wished her little girl a happy 8th birthday before sending her off to her classes.

Matilda’s father Heath Ledger tragically passed away back in 2008 from a prescription drug overdose. At the time, Michelle told press, “I am the mother of the most tender-hearted, high-spirited, beautiful little girl who is the spitting image of her father.”

“All that I can cling to is his presence inside her that reveals itself every day. His family and I watch Matilda as she whispers to trees, hugs animals, and takes steps two at a time, and we know that he is with us still. She will be brought up in the best memories of him.”
