It’s crazy how Matilda looks so much like Heath, especially with the piercing brown eyes she inherited from her dad. The pre-teen was spotted out in New York City, getting a walk to school with her actress mom Michelle Williams, 35. Her face now is a spitting image of her father, and even her hair is the same sandy blond color that her Aussie dad had.
Matilda looks like she’s also inherited her dad’s height as she’s already up to her mom’s shoulders and she’s only 10! Apparently her school doesn’t have uniforms as she was wearing a pink t-shirt, matching patterned pants that could have passed for comfy PJ’s and a pair of Ugg boots to keep her warm. She also came prepared for any New York springtime rain in a yellow jacket. She appears to have both of her parents’ love of reading as she was spotted with a book in her hand.
After Heath and Michelle met and fell in love while shooting the drama Brokeback Mountain, Matilda was born in Oct. 2005 shortly before the film’s release. While Heath was a totally doting daddy to his precious little girl, she was only three-years-old when he died in 2008 at just 28 from an accidental prescription drug overdose. Sadly, he never got to see how she’s grown into a twin version of him.
