According to the magazine, Williams and Youmans were first spotted together in Rome last July, when she was filming All the Money in the World. She’s incredibly private about her personal life, though, so the two haven’t made a public appearance together yet. However, paparazzi did snap them enjoying New Year’s Day in the Bahamas, where Williams was seen wearing a sparkly ring on that finger. This originally caused all the engagement rumors that, per Us Weekly, are completely true.
Williams wore the same ring to the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, but she told reporters it was just “beautiful jewelry,” brushing off any speculation she was engaged. Check out the ring for yourself, below. Williams wasn’t lying: It’s stunning.
“She wants a good guy and a stable family life,” an insider told Us Weekly. Williams has a 12-year-old daughter named Matilda, whom she had with the late Heath Ledger. “Michelle was totally focused on giving Matilda the best upbringing possible,” a friend told Us Weekly. Another confidante added, “It took her a long time to get over Heath.”
If you recall, Williams and Ledger were together from 2004 to 2007. Ledger tragically and suddenly passed away in January 2008 from an accidental drug overdose. It’s believed this incident is largely why Williams is so guarded about her personal life now.
Williams is one of the actresses behind the Time’s Up movement, which launched January 1 and is striving to end harassment and gender imbalance in the workplace. She was recently in the news over reports that her All the Money in the World costar Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million during the film’s reshoots, while she received less than $1,000. Wahlberg ultimately donated his salary to Time’s Up.
