The parents of one of our favorite celebrity children — Matilda Rose, 22 months — have split. Friends of actors Heath Ledger, 28, and Michelle Williams, 26, confirm that they separated a few weeks ago. The couple have been engaged since Michelle became pregnant with Matilda in 2005. They met on the set of Brokeback Mountain in 2004. We don’t usually post about splits, but as they are one of our reader’s favorite celebrity parents and couples, we are making an exception.

While Heath and Michelle are no longer together, they are committed to raising their daughter.

Heath is currently filming Dark Knight in LA, and Matilda is with Michelle while she films Synecdoche in NYC.
