Michelle Williams has revealed she is expecting her third child.

The Oscar-nominated actress and her husband, director Thomas Kail, are set to welcome the latest addition to their family this autumn.

Williams confirmed the news to Variety, telling the US publication: "It's totally joyous. As the years go on, you sort of wonder what they might hold for you or not hold for you.

"It’s exciting to discover that something you want again and again, is available one more time. That good fortune is not lost on me or my family."

It will be the second child for the couple. They welcomed son Hart in 2020 and Williams also has a 16-year-old daughter Matilda from her relationship with the late Heath Ledger.

Williams, who gave birth to Hart during lockdown in 2020, also spoke about becoming a mother again in the midst of a pandemic.

"It was a reminder that life goes on," she said. "The world we brought a baby into is not the world we thought we were bringing a baby into, but the baby is ignorant of that.

"He experiences the unmitigated joy of discovery and the happiness of a loving home."

"There's nothing that makes you committed to a better world than raising a great kid. It's the ultimate creative act," she added.

"The most ecstatic moments of life and art are the transcendent ones. Having children is like that. You combine your DNA with someone else to create a new life."
