Michelle Williams has a lot to celebrate this New Year! The 'Dawson's Creek' alum and recent Emmy winner is engaged to Thomas Kail. His name may sound familiar and with good reason. Kail, 42 is the acclaimed Tony-winning director of 'Hamilton' and won two Emmy's for directing 2016's 'Grease LIVE!' The two met while filming 'Fosse/Verdon' and seemingly, the rest is history. At the time, Williams, 39 was with her now ex-husband, Phil Elverum, with their divorce being finalized this year. She has dated the likes of Jason Segel but it was her relationship with the late Heath Ledger, a love which seemingly could never be duplicated. She and Ledger had a daughter, Matilda, who is now 14, but the family will be expanding. In addition to an engagement, Kail and Williams are expecting a child together, his first. PEOPLE was first to report the story and we are truly over the moon for the two and hope Michelle finally gets her happily ever after! More as the story develops.
