Michelle Williams has spoke out about being a single mother to her 5-year-old daughter Matilda after her former partner Heath Ledger passed away in 2008.
The Blue Valentine star has appeared on USA Today and revealed that she can’t ‘imagine’ not being a mother.
She said: "Five years down the road, it's my new normal. Now I can't imagine, I don't even really remember or would want my life previous.
"You make it work. You keep getting out of bed. Sometimes it's just because you know there's a cup of coffee downstairs."
She also spoke of the support she received after she broke up with Heath Ledger in 2007, just months before he died: "I loved so much becoming a mum and what had been, to me, this invisible community before that sort of rises up and says, 'We're here to help you.
“I was so moved by this new kind of community of people. And then when I became a single mother, there was a smaller but equally powerful community that rose up."
